The duo, who graduated from Amakhosi’s development to the first team this season, have each scored a goal on debut for Chiefs.

“That one is a simple. We have an academy and we invest a lot of money in our academy. We are happy to see the youngsters graduating into the first team. We have top qualified coaches in our development and the coach who believes in youngsters,” Motaung told Independent Media.

Motaung says the lessons the youngsters were taught at the club’s academy will help prepare them for the first team and the fame that comes with it.

“We have no secret. These boys have been taught about life skills at the academy. We are not worried about how they will handle fame. They understand the culture of the team very well,” Motaung continued.
