In fact, that year Chiefs won the National Professional Soccer League, Mainstay Cup and Sales House Cup as well as clinching the JPS under Joe Frickleton, with Molatedi going on to score over 50 goals for the Glamour Boys during his time there.

Speaking to Chiefs’ official website back in 2012 about when his R45k move was sealed, the midfield man said, “Kaizer Chiefs first made contact with me back in 1982 when I was still with Moroka Swallows… Bra Sam Motaung came to my house and spoke to me about joining the Club. I was excited when it finally happened in 1984.

It is the professionalism at Chiefs that make the Club shoulders above the rest.

“I was not under pressure to perform because of the transfer fee that Kaizer Chiefs paid. I always wanted to do my best and when I was a player I always wanted to perform to the best of my ability. Even today I put myself to look good in everything that I do.”
