The partnership between Khumalo and Ford will see the former's soccer development initiatives link up with the Ford CSI projects across SSA..

A statement from Ford read,"7 – Doc Khumalo, one of the best-known names on the South African soccer scene, has been appointed a brand ambassador for Ford, and will be proudly be driving a Ford Mustang for the next 12 months.

“Doc Khumalo is a legendary South African football player, and we are delighted to have him sign up as a brand ambassador for Ford and driving our legendary Mustang,” said Neale Hill, director marketing, sales & service, Ford Motor Company Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region.

"Not only is Khumalo one of SA’s premier football personalities, but he is extensively involved in CSI initiatives across Sub-Saharan Africa through soccer development projects to lift the profile of the sport and create opportunities for young players.

“We look forward to linking Doc up with some of the projects our Ford dealers are doing locally, and in selected SSA markets too,” Hill added. “This further expands our involvement in soccer following our recently announced tie-up with Orlando Pirates Football Club as its official vehicle partner.”

"As a former South African Footballer of the Year, star midfielder for Kaizer Chiefs and key member of the national soccer team Bafana Bafana during the 1990s, Khumalo was recently appointed the technical director of the Baroka Football Club that competes in SA’s Premier Soccer League. This follows a 31-year stint with Kaizer Chiefs as a player and, more recently, assistant coach.

"In his role as Ford brand ambassador, Khumalo will be turning heads behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang GT Cabriolet, powered by the mighty 306kW 5.0-litre V8 engine – thus further raising the profile of one of the world’s most iconic automotive nameplates, and South Africa’s top-selling sports car range.

"I am more than delighted to be part of the Ford family,” said Doc Khumalo. “Driving in the Ford Mustang GT 5.0 will not only be inspirational to me but also to those around me. I extend my gratitude and thanks to my manager Jazzman Mahlakgane who has worked tirelessly to make my dream come true and to the Ford South Africa family for entrusting me with their brand. I have no doubt that we will go further together.”

its really interesting to see bloggers happy and congratulating doc on his ford ambassador gig, some even praising his agent for a job well done, while the same people were dissing pirates for their sponsorship with the same car brand a few days ago. its really pathetic. otherwise big ups doc
