Mzansi's Footballing Khumalos

Khumalo is a common surname in South Africa, but what makes it all the more special is that there have been a number of great players with the name. Can you name the Khumalos who have played football? 

Sibusiso Khumalo is the latest player with that surname to move to Kaizer Chiefs, and he has some big shoes to fill due to the legacy of the Khumalo name.

Doctor Khumalo is, of course, one of the biggest names in Mzansi and at Naturena, and his expertise and tricks leaves him vastly admired by the Amakhosi fans today.

"16 valve" had the pressure of living up to the name of his father, Eliakim Khumalo, who was a fine player back in his day too.

The Amakhosi new boy isn't the only Sibusiso Khumalo in the PSL, though, as he shares the same name and surname as Mamelodi Sundowns' defensive midfielder.
