South African footballer Josta Shimane Dladla is a former player who now works as an ambassador for a variety of organizations.
It was a dream come true for the Soweto native to play for one of the city's most storied football clubs, Kaizer Chiefs.
For the 42-year-old, finally donning the Gold and Black jersey was a lifelong goal. It took him ten years to persuade Amakhosi to sign the contract he was after.
For the former Kaizer Chiefs FC striker, the wait was well worth it, as he had a blast.
In just six years, the striker appeared in over 100 games for the club. After joining the Soweto-based side, many high-profile players have a hard time finding success. And he is a great legend.
Even after his retirement, the Soweto-born star is frequently spotted sporting the Gold and black jersey of his former team. Take a look at his photos here:
