Amakhosi have honored their commitment to reduce the average age of their squad, which Kaizer Motaung Jnr promised fans a few months ago.
Last season, the Chiefs' average age was 27.9, with 13 players over the age of 30, however it has been decreased to 25.9 ahead of the 2022-23 PSL season.
And it's all down to the daring choice made by both the new technical team and management to let go of eleven players.
Daniel Akpeyi, Daniel Cardoso, Bernard Parker, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Leonardo Castro, and Lebogang Manyama were among those who were beyond the age of 30.
And none of the newly-signed players have reached the age of 30, with Siyethemba Sithebe, who is currently 29 years old, being the lone exception.
