Jersey 15 Wanted! - Reader's Voice

Recent reports have depicted an appetite for a certain Glamour Boys Jersey number 15. Kearyn Baccus, the man guilty asked to wear this legendary jersey number worn by Doctor "16 valve" Khumalo. His performances have been really promising, but does this warrant him the privilege of wearing such an iconic jersey.

The number was retired for a reason. A player synonymous with South African football. Let's just say if the fans could choose between him and Doc, they would bring back "16 valve" right now. That says a lot about what the player still needs to do to impress the Amakhosi faithful. Retiring the number honours the legend who played 397 games for Kaizer Chiefs.

And now here comes a guy asking for the number after three games. Maybe he doesn't realise the magnitude of the number and is completely oblivious to the story behind this number 15. It's clear and obvious that the history of the club has not yet been embedded into the newcomers of the Amakhosi fold.

Usually, your first season players would take high numbers to find their feet and then go for those iconic numbers after having a good season or winning a trophy. To Baccus, it might just be a number but to the fans, it's so much more. Is Baccus a suitable candidate?
