Madida: We Managed To Raise The Chiefs Flag Even Higher

In light of Kaizer Chiefs 50th anniversary, legend Fani Madida shared some fond memories about his time at the club.

The 53-year-old retired centre-forward established himself as an Amakhosi legend, spending five years at the club before jetting off to Europe in 1992.

Madida thereafter plied his trade for Besiktas, Antalyaspor and Bursaspor in Turkey before returning home to Mzansi in 1998.

Speaking on Chiefs’ official website, the former striker opened up about his early days at the club, where he made his Amakhosi debut on November 01, 1987, in a Soweto Derby, this under the mentorship of the late Ted Dimitru.

“It was the biggest crowd I had ever seen. I was nervous. I was still the tiniest of players. Ted (Dimitru), however, always prepared us youngsters well by fielding us in big friendly matches. I had played, for example, in a friendly in Namibia, where the stadium was packed to capacity. Those games prepared me to come on as substitute in the Soweto Derby,” Madida said on Chiefs’ official website.

“It was such an honour to have served Kaizer Chiefs, a club with such a rich history and which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. When I joined the club, we took over from a generation of winners and we managed to raise the Kaizer Chiefs flag even higher. We set our own standard for the next generation,” he went on to say.
