  • Bernard Parker of Kaizer Chiefs.

    4. Knowledge Musona

    The Zimbabwe captain netted 44 goals for Amakhosi during his two successful stints with Chiefs and he scooped the 2010/11 PSL Golden Boot award which earned him a move to German side TSG Hoffenheim.

    7. Kaizer Moutang Junior, Thabo Mooki and David Radebe

    Motaung Junior was known for his heading ability during his playing days and he netted 35 goals for the Soweto giants during an 11-year stint with the club as a player.

    While Radebe is best remembered for his blistering speed and being wasteful in front of goal during his time with Chiefs, but he managed to net 35 times for the Soweto giants. 

    One of the longest-serving players in the history of Chiefs, Mooki was a goalscoring midfielder who netted 35 goals for the team and he retired as a one-club man in 2009.

  • Arthur Zwane of Kaizer Chiefs

    8. Arthur Zwane

    The current Chiefs assistant coach enjoyed a 10-year playing career at Amakhosi - scoring 32 goals as a speedy right-winger who had previously played for the club's arch-rivals Orlando Pirates.

    9. George Lebese

    The left-winger was a fan-favourite at Chiefs before he left the club for Mamelodi Sundowns in 2017 having netted 30 goals during his nine-year stint with the Naturena-based giants.

  • Leonardo Castro, Kaizer Chiefs

    10. Leonardo Castro

    Castro has netted 29 goals which sees him placed 10th on Chiefs' all-time top goalscorers having played 114 games for the Glamour Boys. 

    Chiefs were handed a massive boost when Castro returned from a long-term injury towards the end of last year having spent almost six months on the sidelines. 

    He will be looking to move up on the all-time list by scoring goals for the Soweto giants when the 2021/22 season resumes next month.
