A Liverpool FC legend had some inspiring words to say about Kaizer Chiefs for their 50th year anniversary.
Retired professional footballer, John Barnes, captained the Liverpool side that faced off with Amakhosi back in May 29, 1994 in the United Bank Festival match, which ended up in a goalless draw at Ellis Park.
Speaking to Chiefs and as quoted from the club’s official website, Barnes had some incredible words to say about the Soweto giants, who are celebrating their 50th year anniversary in South Africa Football.
“The message I want to give Kaizer Chiefs is not just one of congratulations, but it is one that should fill the club with immense pride. The Kaizer Chiefs of 50 years ago, when it first started as a small little thing, who would imagined it would be what it is now?” he said.
“I’ve known and seen Kaizer Chiefs over the last 20 years or so since 1994, but this club was started in 1970 by someone who had a dream and said ‘let’s not just start a football club, but let’s start a movement’ which has grown into what it has become today. The one who should take all the glory is not the Kaizer Chiefs of the last 20 years, it is the man who started it all 50 years ago and we should never forget that,” the former England international added.
