Doctor Khumalo (assistant coach) of Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport football analyst is celebrating his birthday today. 

‘Mntungwa’ made a name for himself at Soweto Club Kaizer Chiefs before he was loaned to Argentine sports club Ferro Carril Oeste in 1995. Doctor joined Amakhosi in 1986 as a youngster from Moroka Swallows.

Following a successful loan stint in Argentina, he was loan out to Columbus Crew SC in the United States for one season.

His impressive performances on home soil for the Soweto Giants earned him a call up in the first Bafana Bafana squad after re-admission of South Africa to FIFA in 1992.

Ed. He’s the son of the late Chiefs legend ‘Bra’ Pro Elkiam Khumalo, whom I was privileged to have been mentored by at Chiefs development side Colts u/19.
