On this Throwback Thursday, Briefly.co.za remembers the brilliance of one of Mzansi's greatest ever footballers - Doctor Khumalo.
The legendary footballer Doctor Khumalo turned 52 earlier this year as per a Briefly.co.za report.
The former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana star was lauded for his achievements on the field.
The midfielder was born on 26 June, 1967 in Soweto and he's had a love affair with his hometown ever since.
Although Khumalo had stints with Ferro Carril Oeste in Argentina and Columbus Crew in the USA, he's always been a one club man within South Africa since joining Chiefs in 1986.
Not many fans are aware that his career actually started off with the Moroka Swallows Reserves as he made his name while at the Amakhosi.
Khumalo became the premier South African midfielder of the 1990s as he won three league titles, five cup tournaments and was voted the best player in 1992.
Khumalo not only performed for club, but was instrumental for his country as well.
Having been selected for South Africa's first international football match in 1992, Khumalo scored the only goal of the game against Cameroon.
The man known as '16-Valve' was also crucial to Bafana's 1996 African Cup of Nations success and played at the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
Khumalo's achievements were recognised off the pitch too as he was voted 62nd on the list of 100 Great South Africans.
