A week after his departure from Kaizer Chiefs, South African midfielder George Maluleka sends an emotional farewell message to Amakhosi.
Maluleka played under Chgiefs’ outfit from 2014 till the end of his contract on June 30, 2020. Despite joining arch-rivals Mamelodi Sundowns, he keep good memories of his spell at Kaizer Chiefs during last six years.
“To the Chairman [Kaizer Motaung], staff members and faithful Kaizer Chiefs fans, it’s a constant surprise of just how far a road we have travelled together,” Maluleka wrote.
“The continued love, commitment and support you’ve shown can never be forgotten. The road that I have travelled with Kaizer Chiefs could not have been done without your continued support.”
“Thanks for always getting excited about the games we played as a team, despite it not always ending good [sic]. Your support expressed on social media and other platforms, also in real life and in real time, will always be appreciated.”
“Endings are never easy but I celebrate it knowing that it precedes new beginnings. As I enter a new season, I remember the powerful words of Martin Luther King Jr: ‘Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.’
“You will all continue to hold a special place in my heart, both now and for years to come. And, as I take my first step into the new season, I look forward to the new challenges that lie ahead at Mamelodi Sundowns.”
