"These individuals are envious of a resurgent Kaizer Chiefs, South Africa's most successful football club!" says Floyd Shivambu. Also, keeping the Pirates Star, which was awarded in 1995, makes no sense. We should lobby for stars who are greater beyond 20 or even 10 years old to be removed from the next CAF and FIFA Conferences.People still brag about a 26-year-old celebrity after a generation has passed? It's the equivalent of gloating about a long-gone automobile that your grandfather used to own in the 1970s or 1980s.
Some of the people who are bragging about Pirates' Star weren't even alive when the team won the CAF Championship in 1995, when it was a much smaller club!"
Kaizer Chiefs icon Neil Tovey will not predict how the Soweto giants will do in the 2021/22 season, but he is encouraged by their new acquisitions.
Amakhosi were unable to sign any players for two years due to a FIFA transfer restriction, but have made a lot of interesting signings in recent weeks.
Kaizer Chiefs have signed a total of ten new players, which does not include new coach Stuart Baxter.
Keagan Dolly, Austin Dube, Njabulo Ngcobo, Sifiso Hlanti, Phathutshedzo Nange, Brandon Peterson, Given Thibedi, Kgaogelo Sekgota, Sibusiso Mabiliso, and Cole Alexander have all signed with Amakhosi ahead of the DStv Premiership season in 2021/22.
Tovey, a former Kaizer Chiefs captain, lauded the club's Carling Black Label Cup victory but said it was too soon to make any predictions.
Tovey told Kickoff, "I realize it's early in the season, and the Chiefs haven't had much time to relax because they just played in a cup final." To be honest, that's probably why I thought the Chiefs were the better team on the day. With the kids, it's looking a lot better.
“Let's take it one step at a time.” The season is still set to begin, and the transfer window is still open.
“Let's see who else they try to apprehend. In the goalkeeping area, I believed Brandon Petersen was an excellent buy. They've been looking for a goalie for a while now, so we'll see what happens. Let's just take it one step at a time and see where they are after the first quarter of the league season.”
Between 1990 and 1999, Tovey, now 59, appeared in 341 matches with Kaizer Chiefs. He formerly played for AmaZulu (117 matches) and Durban City (174 matches). He's also the owner of 52 Bafana Bafana caps.
