Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Kaizer Motaung Junior has hailed his father, Kaizer Motaung, as the figure responsible for turning the club into a massive brand.

'Chincha Guluva' turned 73 on Monday and Amakhosi have been hailing their founder's influence on the team since its formation on 7 January 1970.

His son, Kaizer Junior, played for Chiefs between 2003 and 2014 and is grateful for Motaung's influence on his career.

"My dad and I are basically two people loving football. We can often be found sitting on a couch watching soccer," the 34-year-old told the club's official website.

"I am fortunate to be around somebody who created something special. I had the honour to play soccer with the team and to work for the company.

"He's the best father I could ever ask for. He's always there if I need advice. As a chairman, he's a pioneer, a visionary. There are few people in the world who have achieved what he has done."
