About Kaizer Chief
The 1970’s (1970-1979)
The birth of Kaizer Chiefs
The extraordinary story of Kaizer Chiefs is indelibly linked to the life and football career of the man the club derives its name from.
While Kaizer Chiefs may well have been formally formed on 7 January 1970, its story has its origins in the tumultuous 1960s when Kaizer Motaung first forged his name as a teenager at Orlando Pirates before gaining global acclaim in the North American Soccer League with Atlanta Chiefs.
As a teenage prodigy at Orlando Pirates, Motaung made his senior debut for the Buccaneers at the age of just 16, setting the then South African Soccer League alight with his explosive talent.
Motaung was recruited in 1968 by Atlanta Chiefs to play in the inaugural North American Soccer League and made his debut for Atlanta Chiefs on 27 May 1968 against English champions Manchester City as a substitute, scoring on debut as Chiefs won 3-2.
The South African ended the season being voted NASL ‘Rookie of The Year’ and was instrumental in Atlanta Chiefs being crowned champions that year.
The following season, ‘Boy Boy’, as the South African was soon nicknamed in America, scored 16 goals in 16 matches, becoming the top goal scorer in the league as he was voted onto the NASL All-Star Team.
At the height of his powers in the United States, however, Motaung was drawn back to South Africa when there was major mutiny on the Orlando Pirates ship.
In late 1969 Motaung returned home with Pirates suffering major internal problems and with team manager Ewert Nene and three players, Ratha Mokgoatlheng, Msomi Khoza and Zero Johnson, expelled and banished from Pirates and essentially rendered “homeless” in the football sense for various reasons.
Motaung tried his utmost to resolve the impasse, but was unsuccessful. Out of these circumstances, an invitational Kaizer XI was formed in late 1969.
Kaizer XI played numerous friendlies, fielding a fantastic team with players such as Alfred ‘Bomber’ Chamane, Vincent ‘Tantie’ Julius, Ingle Singh, Jackie Masike, Herman ‘Pelé’ Blaschke, Patrick ‘Ace’Ntsoelengoe and the three former Pirates players who were expelled.
As they played far and wide in every corner of the country, there was a huge, fanatical response from supporters to the flowing football and glamour of the Kaizer XI.
And when the time came for Motaung to return to the United States, there was a huge clamour from fans for the invitational team to continue and for it to be formalised.
Motaung volunteered to lead the process of establishing a new club, which was officially established at the home of enthusiastic administrator Simon Shezi in Meadowlands on 7 January 1970.
Other than the expelled Pirates trio, other great footballers such as Eliakim ‘Pro’ Khumalo and Ariel Kgongoane also considered themselves free agents and joined Kaizer Chiefs, knowing just how much consternation this would cause at Orlando Pirates.
It was far from plain sailing during the new club’s formative years. Many within the football fraternity viewed them as upstarts and did not want them to succeed. Fortunately though, most of the players bought into Motaung’s vision of setting up a club that would be run professionally, and trusted his integrity.
With the support of various business partners to supplement Motaung’s personal capital investment, Kaizer Chiefs soon became a force to be reckoned with, winning their first league title in 1974.
Motaung contributed 13 league goals to the triumph, despite missing most of the season while playing for Denver Dynamos in the NASL.
In addition to the 1974 league title, Kaizer Chiefs won numerous trophies in the early 1970s, including league titles in 1977 and a unified multiracial league title in 1979, the BP Top Eight (1973, 1974, 1976), Champion of Champions (1972, 1974, 1976) and the Life Challenge Cup (1971, 1972).
Fans flocked from all corners to be enthralled by the excitement provided by a team brimming with fantastic players. Joseph ‘Banks’ Sethlodi, an accomplished goalkeeper who also took the penalties, defenders Masike and Ryder Mofokeng, midfielders Petros ‘Ten-Ten’ Nzimande, Patrick ‘Ace’ Ntsoelengoe, Vusi ‘Computer’ Lamola and strikers Pelé Blaschke, Michael ‘Bizzah’ Dlamini and Abednigo ‘Shaka’ Ngcobo were all instrumental in creating the swashbuckling style of flowing, entertaining, winning football that attracted supporters by their millions, and has become synonymous with the Kaizer Chiefs brand.
Of that formidable group of footballing pioneers, Motaung is always first to say that “we as Kaizer Chiefs are standing on the shoulders of that generation. If it wasn’t for the success they had in those early years, I don’t know where we would be today.”
With the team’s success came affectionate nicknames, with Amakhosi (which means ‘chiefs’ or ‘kings’ in Zulu) and the (Phefeni) Glamour Boys being the most prominent.
The latter label was given by the supporters because Motaung always insisted that his players were always immaculately and stylishly dressed to fit in with the professional image of the club.
Those halcyon years were also defined by the Afro hairstyle, which became popular with many players who imitated Motaung’s trendsetting style when he returned from America sporting the new look.
The club’s slogan of ‘Love & Peace’ came about as an expression of non-aggression in response to a growing wave of violence among fans of other clubs, especially when their teams were losing. The mantra was, and still remains, a core element capturing what it means to be a Kaizer Chiefs fan.
After wrapping up his successful career in the United States, Motaung returned home permanently in 1975 to continue playing for and running the club that he had helped establish five years earlier.
However, he hung up his soccer boots only a year later to concentrate fully on guiding Chiefs on their path to becoming the dominant force in South African football that it is today.
Motaung’s decision to focus solely on the administration of the club in 1976 was swayed by the tragic death that year Nene. Chiefs’ popular team manager, who had recruited many of the team’s star players, was in Springs to sign up talented young winger, Nelson ‘Teenage’ Dladla, when he was attacked and murdered by hooligans who did not want to lose their favourite player to the Glamour Boys.
In Nene’s absence, Motaung’s administrative responsibilities increased, leaving him insufficient time to devote to playing.
South Africa’s first multiracial league kicked off in 1978, with Kaizer Chiefs achieving a respectable fourth position at the end of the season, as the highest placed traditionally black side, behind originally white clubs, Lusitano, Wits University and Arcadia Shepherds.
One year on though, Amakosi were champions, holding off strong competition from Highlands Park and Arcadia Shepherds.
By that time, a number of white players had joined Chiefs, the first of which was Lucky Stylianou, a defensive midfielder. Others would soon follow, including goalkeeper Peta Bala’c, Jimmy ‘Brixton Tower’ Joubert and Frank ‘Jingles’ Pereira.
Amakhosi were by now South Africa’s most popular team. The magic of Kaizer Chiefs derives directly from projecting the proud and dignified image that was so central to Motaung’s vision, because it extended beyond football.
The club was formed at the height of repressive apartheid legislation in South Africa and it always presented itself as a self-assured, modern and glamorous institution. Its inspirational vision fitted in with the mood of the times.
With their success, Chiefs provided a rare outlet of joy and happiness in turbulent times.
One of the highlights of the 1970s was Chiefs becoming the first ‘black’ side to beat a traditionally ‘white’ one in the Chevrolet Champions of Champions at the Rand Stadium against Cape Town’s Hellenic.
Hellenic had won the first leg 4-0. Hellenic manager, Joe Frickleton, had once boasted that a black team would never be as good as a white one.
Kaizer Chiefs, however, proved Frickleton wrong when they beat his ‘white’ side Hellenic 2-1 in the second leg.
While Chiefs were trailblazers on the pitch, they broke barriers off it too.
From the early seventies, Kaizer Chiefs became the first so-called black team to camp in a hotel before a match, alternating at such swanky hotels as the Devonshire, Crest, Johannesburg and Moulin Rouge hotels in and around the Johannesburg CBD.
Amakhosi had grown in only ten years’ time to become the best and most supported soccer side in South Africa.
