Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs’ Marketing Director, Jessica Motaung, revealed that much credit must go to greats like Ace Ntsoelengoe and Doctor Khumalo for making the club a giant of South African football.

Ntsoelengoe is widely considered to be Chiefs' greatest ever player, making his name as a skillful goal-scoring forward. Meanwhile, Khumalo also achieved legendary status for his play-making exploits on the pitch between 1987 and 2004.

Motaung told Amakhosi's official website:, "It was inspiring to be around a generation of many great players that won so many trophies. It was always such an honour to see Ace Ntsoelengoe. He was not only a brilliant player, but also such a humble and pleasant person.

"Others included Howard Freese (who was very handsome), Scara Thindwa, Trevor ‘KKK’ Mthimkhulu, Chippa Molatedi, Doctor Khumalo and Teenage Dladla (a wonderful and soft-spoken man).

She also pointed out that a strong family bond is also something that inspires her, adding: "I have the privilege to be around people who are inspirational and motivational. My father (Kaizer) started a business and built a massive brand and my mother is an exceptionally strong woman (Valeta) and a person of substance.

She has kept our family together and united. She has created a home for all of us."
