Born Theophilus Doctorson Khumalo on this day in 1967, ‘Doc’ went on to become one of the most successful and iconic footballers in the country, reaching legendary status with the Amakhosi during his 15 years at the club.

Following his debut at 19 in 1987, Khumalo scored 75 goals in 397 games for the Glamour Boys and was also the man who found the back of the net for the South African national team in their first game back after re-admission to FIFA in 1992.

Khumalo played for Chiefs his whole career aside from short loan moves to Ferro Carril Oeste in Argentina and Columus Crew in America, finishing his Bafana Bafana career with nine goals in 50 games.

Mdokis, Happy Birthday my legend. Brazil players like Kaka, Rhonaldhinho, Rivaldho, still remember and respect you for the brace of goals you scored against them. You unlike Pitso who was playing for an unknown Greece team sponsored by Fish & Chips

One of the Greatest Players to ever play in Mzansi, in fact after the likes of Chincha Guluva, Ace Ntsoelengoe, Jomo Sono, Teenage Dladla, Professor Ngubane, Ace Mnini Dr Khumalo rises in his Generation as the Icon and the Force to be reckoned with... There has never been a player born after his Generation who comes closer to him... I am yet to see Kaizer standing up to encourage a 17 years old play maker to be recruited and play in the first team and if he is good enough let that lad be given the iconic Jersey no15! Happy birthday Mdokish, you are irreplaceable Sir. Both Chiefs and Bafana have not found a player of your calibre... You fearlessly stood your grounds against some of the best players in the world. You left a memory in my football self that will not be erased by any other player. Long Live Dr Khumalo Long Live Legend!
