Motaung admits to seeing messages from fans on social media tipping him as the club’s next chairman but he says he is not reading too much into the supporters’ wishes.
The former Chiefs striker says he is happy to observe the running of the club through his siblings Bobby, Jessica and Kemiso.
“Believe me, it is an honour to be here and I wanted to look at things from a different perspective, right now I wanted to look at things from a different perspective, from many years on the pitch and learned great deal. I want to be a sponge and learn. I am privileged to have someone like the chairman (Kaizer Motaung) around to get the knowledge. I would love to learn and to add value and that’s the gist of what I will be doing because at the end of the day it is about giving back to the club,” said Motaung.
Motaung added that he went back to school to set an example for his sons and hopes they learn the value of education. “Education is not about family or anyone, it is about you. It is a personal achievement that no one is going to take away. For me it was something that I have always wanted to do or to achieve and I took the decision in 2014 to do it full time and focus on it. I have my own family, I have two boys and I want to do the best I can for them and provide the best life I can for them. You need to lead by example. If I want my boys to push and arm themselves what is the best way (than getting educated). Kids don’t do what you say, they do what you do.”
