Supporters Club

SA's Soccer Legends

Over the years, South Africa has produced some great talents who have left a lasting mark on the football fraternity, not only locally but on the international scene as well. Today, Supporters Club pays homage to five Mzansi legends of the game.

Jomo Sono

The "Black Prince" of South African football dazzled the crowds with his superb skills and tore opposition defences apart. Now owner and coach of Jomo Cosmos, he is known for his eye for talent and has moulded some great players in recent years.

Siyabonga Nomvethe

A player with an eye for goal, Nomvethe has played for teams abroad and at home, including Kaizer Chiefs. With a career spanning more than 15 years, "Bhele" has been an instrumental figure for both club and country.

Doctor Khumalo

"16V", an Amakhosi legend who was part of the team that won three South African championship titles and five knockout trophies, was also voted the South African player of the year in 1992. His career also took him to the US and Argentina.

Sibusiso Zuma

"Rhee", as Zuma is known in football circles, is definitely a veteran of the game. The now retired footballer played for some of the best teams locally and also starred abroad too. A statue of him was even erected in Denmark!

Mark Fish

"Fiiiiiisssssshhhh", as the crowds would chant every time the defender had the ball, made a name for himself when he played for Bolton Wanders and Charlton Athletic in England, but before his move overseas, Fish began his career at Jomo Cosmos and then added his name to the history books of Orlando Pirates.

What are your favourite memories of these players? Stay tuned as we look at more South African legends in the coming days…
