Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung expressed delight with Chiefs' league form but said the race for the Absa Premiership title is not over until the fat lady sings.

Chiefs lead the table by seven points with 11 wins from 14 matches and in his annual new year message on the club's website, Motaung thanked all corners of the Amakhosi brand for their contribution to the current team's success, but said it was still too early to celebrate.

“The performance of the team is subject to input from everyone,” said Motaung.

“From the supporters, the team, staff, sponsors and suppliers and stakeholders at large, everyone associated with this badge, all contributed to the team to be where it is today.

“It is still too early though, but it is commendable and worth celebrating to see the team on top of the Absa Premiership."

The Amakhosi celebrate their 50-year anniversary in 2020 and Motaung wished the Chiefs fans a happy new year.

“God bless you in all your endeavours in 2020 and beyond. Enjoy 2020 and make use of every opportunity that comes your way.

“We will do our best to compete for silverware and put smiles on your faces in our fifth decade in existence. Let us journey together into 2020.

“As much as we look forward to the year of our Golden Jubilee celebrations, to coincide with our 50th anniversary on 7 January, we have offered our supporters free tickets for our (birthday) match a day later – we will host Highlands Park on ?on Wednesday, 8 January.

“It’s a way of showing gratitude to our supporters. We look forward to a wonderful night of our 50th anniversary celebrations at FNB Stadium.

“I wish you all a fulfilling and prosperous 2020.”
