Kaizer Motaung has wished Doctor Khumalo well in his new venture after a 31-year relationship with Kaizer Chiefs came to an end today.
The 50-year-old former Amakhosi star has been with the club since his career began back in the 1980s, holding several roles within the Glamour Boys’ structures as he became a legend both on and off the field.
‘16V’ confirmed today that he had taken the decision to join Baroka FC as their Technical Director and his former employee has spoken fondly of his time at Naturena, wishing him all the best for the future.
Motaung said in a statement, “Doctor came to us six months ago to discuss his future plans and desire to pursue other interests… Among the points contained in his proposal was the desire to grow his brand and take on other challenges after celebrating his 50th birthday in June.

“We sat down and discussed his proposals with the football department to map the way forward for both parties until we agreed that he should pursue his dreams as we did not want to stand in his way.
“Doctor remains a legend of the club and we will always work with him whenever the opportunity presents itself. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours. He will also be welcomed back whenever we do our legends programmes.”
