Players Who May Be Considered Legends Upon Retirement

About a week ago, Fan Park asked if Oupa Manyisa will be considered a Pirates legend if he were to leave for Sundowns, to which most of the users replied no.

Today, we look at senior players who will most likely be considered legends by their respective clubs when they finally retire. 

Siphiwe Tshabalala
Although Shabba had a rather slow start to his career at Amakhosi, he soon picked up his form and has been the Naturena-based club's talisman for the better part of the last eight years. 

Suprise Moriri
After impressing for the then Silver Stars (now Platinum Stars), Moriri was snatched up by Mamelodi Sundowns in the mid 2000s, where he has proven to be a key player occupying different roles in the team.

Lefa Tsutsulupa
Probably the most consistent defensive midfielder in the last decade or so, the Moroka Swallows skipper has had a career to be proud of and will most likely enjoy legendary status within the club. 

Daine Klate
The most decorated player in the PSL era has recently moved from a trophy-laden spell at Orlando Pirates back to his old club, SuperSport United, where he helped them to a successive treble of league trophies in his last stint at the Tshwane club.

Itumeleng Khune
Already considered a club legend by some, Khune has served both Kaizer Chiefs and the national team with great aplomb since his PSL breakthrough season almost a decade ago. Despite reportedly receiving mega offers from Mamelodi Sundowns, Spider Kid has opted to play out the remaining six months of his contract with Chiefs. Who knows what will happen after?

Special Mention: Lucky Lekgwathi 
The most successful captain in the PSL era, Lucky Lekgwathi, gets a special mention as he is already considered a club legend at Pirates. The 38-year old veteran, though plagued by injuries lately, continues to prolong his 13-year spell in the Bucs ship with exemplary loyalty.

Which players do you think should be considered legends when they retire?
