- Images have reportedly been leaked showing off the Kaizer Chiefs jersey for the 2019/ 2020 season
- Amakhosi will be celebrating their 50th anniversary, which led to even more hype in the build-up to the big launch of the kit
- Jessica Motaung was spotted handing the new top to American radio personality, Sway Calloway
Kaizer Chiefs endured a horrible season with a finish outside of the top 8 in the PSL and a humiliating defeat to TS Galaxy in the Nedbank Cup final.
Disgruntled supporters have been appeased to an extent with the promise of an improved player transfer strategy during pre-season.
Chiefs fans are also looking forward to the Carling Cup and launch of their new football kit.
The club normally adds to the hype and this year is no exception as their 50th anniversary approaches.
KickOff.com have reported that images have been leaked of the new jersey and caused a stir via social media.
Although no official announcement has been made, Jessica Motaung was recently spotted handing over one of the new jerseys to American radio personality, Sway Calloway.
Many supporters were expecting an iconic jersey to commemorate the special occasion, but it seems to have elements of a recent design – the ‘zebra jersey’ from the 2011/ 2012 season.
Briefly.co.za noted the social media reaction and it seems many were appalled by the new design.
Twitter user, @TS_BlackR, said, “Ugliest Kaizer Chiefs jersey ever.”
Then, @vmrashula, added: “Please say it ain't so... The on field embarrassment we suffer is enough surely. Please, not this too!”
Twitter user, @Am_Blujay, said, “After a horrific season Chiefs went even further to disrespect us with their new jersey.”
