Throwback Thursday

TBT: Thabo Mooki Amakhosi Fan Favourite

He made a name for himself at Moletsane High School as a budding talent and would later go on to become one of the darlings of South African football. Fans will have fond memories of Thabo ‘Tsiki-Tsiki’ Mooki.

George Maluleka recently revealed that Mooki is largely responsible for the reason he dons the jersey number 12 at Kaizer Chiefs, so great was the midfielder’s influence at the time.

Having made his Amakhosi debut in 1994, the diminutive star soon had people sitting up and taking note of his undeniable talent. He was nicknamed after Mdu Masilela’s hit song ‘Tsiki-Tsiki’ by adoring fans.

Blessed with nifty footwork and an eye for a defence-splitting pass, his ability to control the tempo of the game was unparalleled.

Watch some of his skills below:

He is part of an exclusive club of one-team men, something that is somewhat overlooked these days.

The legendary midfielder bid farewell to the beautiful game in 2009.

What are your memories of Tsiki-Tsiki in a Chiefs shirt?
