Kaizer Chiefs executive chairman Kaizer Motaung says it is important to celebrate individuals that have contributed to the history of the club.

Chiefs have had a second barren season under Steve Komphela, with very little to celebrate, but the club decided to host their annual end of season award gala, where some players were honoured.

“It is important for the club to review and take note of some of the highlights of the season, and show appreciation to all involved in continuing to contribute to the rich history of this institution,” said Kaizer Chiefs executive chairman Kaizer Motaung.

“It is no secret we were found wanting when it mattered most during the season and the team failed to fulfill our desires and expectations. But learning the key lessons is always important after disappointing results because they will help us to pave the path for success next season.”
