To be considered as a legend in any aspect of life, means you have gone the extra mile on what you are doing, something former Kaizer Chiefs Football Club, players Simphiwe "Nto tse monate" Tshabalala and Theodore "Doctor" Khumalo knows very well.
The duo has played for Chiefs in two different generations, but their impact on the club is almost the same. They have both spent well over ten years at the club, with Khumalo spending 17 years(1987 to 2004) and Tshabalala spending 11 years(2007 to 2018).
Khumalo followed in his father Eliakim Khumalo's footsteps who played for mighty amakhosi in the 70s, in becoming a club legend. The 54-year-old helped built what we now know and fear, he is arguably one of the skillful and gifted players Chiefs and South Africa has ever seen.
16v who is currently working as a SABC sports analyst has worked as the club's U-17 coach and first-team assistant coach, before joining Baroka Football Club as their technical director.
While Shabba who is currently clubless has won nine trophies for Naturena based club, and he was also part of the last group to win silverware for Amakhosi, as they won the league title back in the 2014/2015 season under Chiefs current head coach Stuart Baxter.
The 37-year-old who left the Phefeni Glamour Boys back in 2018 for Turkish club BB Erzurumspor Football Club, returned to Mzansi before the 2020/2021 season where he joined Amazulu Football but left Usuthu after a single season.
The two legends were spotted together at Alexandra Stadium, Alexandra attending the 2021 Red Bull Kasi Cup. The tournaments put together the best of Gauteng townships clubs against each, for a price of R100 000 for the winner of the competition.
