Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Frank ‘Jingles’ Pereira, has heaped praise on Amakhosi chairman, Kaizer Motaung Snr, on his 70th birthday.
Motaung Snr, who established Chiefs back in 1970, celebrates turning 70 today, with his team currently in the middle of a record-breaking start to a league campaign.
Pereira was part of the legendary Glamour Boys side that won the quadruple in 1981, and says that Motaung was always ‘outstanding’ during his time at Naturena.
Pereira, who played for Chiefs between 1979 and 1983, told Chiefs’ official website, “What can I say? Kaizer was always outstanding as the boss for the players. He inspired all of us. A man of honour and that’s also why he has been so successful in building the club into an empire. Kaizer’s word is his honour. He runs Kaizer Chiefs like a business, but always in a straight and honourable way.
“Unlike other clubs in those days, the Amakhosi players were always paid in full and on time. I am proud to have been part of Chiefs’ history. I will be seventy next year, so I am one year behind Kaizer. I hope you can keep up the flag for many years to come. A big hug for your birthday.”
