With the country still in a celebratory mood for one of the best things to happen in South African football in Kaizer Chiefs, one of Amakhosi’s former players, Wedson Nyirenda has joined in on the celebrations to share his memories at the club.
Amakhosi commemorated their 50th Birthday on Tuesday January 7 this year boasting over 50 club trophies since the start of their existence and 16 million supporters across the globe.
The former Zambian international who played for Chiefs in 1993 says playing for Chiefs is one of the best things to happen to happen to his career.
“I spoke to Bobby (Motaung) on the day (of the celebration) and we shared a few words of congratulatory messages. Playing for Chiefs has been a beautiful rose in the garden of my CV,” Nyirenda tod FARPost.co.za.
“Playing for Kaizer Chiefs is no mean achievement, they don’t call them Glamour Boys for nothing. I think you know what it means to put on the Gold and Black because you are representing a lot of masses in Africa and the world over,” continued Nyirenda.
“I have been to a lot of places in the world and I have found the Kaizer Chiefs jersey around and then I was telling myself I played for a better team. I would also like to join in to congratulate my former team and the Chairman my father Kaizer Motaung for reaching this millstone,” he said.
Nyirenda recently resigned at Baroka after helping the Limpopo Team to lift the 2018 Telkom Knockout cup after beating Orlando Pirates in the Final.
