Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs chairman and club founder, Kaizer Motaung, has taken time to recognise some of the legends who helped turn the Glamour Boys into arguably the biggest and most well supported club in South Africa.

With the club celebrating its 47th anniversary on 7 January after being formed on the same day in 1970, Motaung believes it is the performances of some great players from the past that has helped the team get to where it is today.

He told the club's official website, "Every anniversary brings back memories of the past. I wish to pay tribute to all the founding members who are no longer with us. Last year, we lost two of our stalwarts, Pele Blaschke and Petros 'Ten-Ten' Nzimande, both of whom played a sterling role in the foundation of Chiefs. May their souls rest in peace."

In recent years, the club has also seen former stars Ace Ntsoelengoe, Shoes Moshoeu, Shakes Kungwane and Shaka Nqcobo sadly pass away as well. Nonetheless, Motaung is looking to honour their legacy by giving back to those in need.

He added, "I am pleased to see the club evolving over the years...We are continuing to work in partnership with organisations such as the Reach For A Dream Foundation, which is gratifying to see."
