Katsande, Parker Join Elite Group Of Amakhosi Icons

As Willard Katsande and Bernard Parker celebrate a decade with Kaizer Chiefs, Soccer Laduma looks at the list of players who were at Naturena for 10 years or more in the Premier Soccer League era.

Both Katsande and Parker arrived at Naturena in 2012 while Serbian coach Vladimir Vermezovic was at the helm and they've gone onto win two league titles, as well as the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup titles.

They are now part of a group that includes the likes of Thabo Mooki, Siphiwe Tshabalala, Kaizer Motaung Jnr, Arthur Zwane, Tinashe Nengomasha, and their current teammate Itumeleng Khune, who is the longest-serving player for Amakhosi in the PSL era. Khune has been with the Soweto giants for 17 years now, after coming through the club's development structures. 

Mooki, a legend who was affectionately known as 'Tsiki-Tsiki', joined Chiefs in 1994, before the start of the PSL era. He played at Chiefs for 13 years in the PSL, before hanging up his boots in 2009.

Sibeko started his Amakhosi career in 2000 and retired there in 2012 and is part of management at the moment at the club. 

Tshabalala arrived at Naturena in 2007 and was there until 2018, when he made a move to Turkey.

Both Nengomasha and Zwane, who is the first team assistant coach now, were at Naturena for 10 years.
