Where Are The Kaizer Chiefs Players Who Won The 2013 Nedbank Cup?
Kaizer Chiefs were crowned champions of the 2013 Nedbank Cup competition, but where are all the players who guided the Soweto giants to victory in the final against SuperSport United that year?
Amakhosi have had a big turnover of players since the departure of Head Coach, Stuart Baxter, at the helm of the Chiefs bench, with the likes of Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Siboniso Gaxa all no longer plying their trade in the famous black and gold colours.
However, before leaving the Glamour Boys, Baxter guided the Soweto giants to several honours in his time at the club, one of which was the Nedbank Cup in 2013.
Chiefs claimed a 1-0 victory over SuperSport United in the final on May 25, 2013, and were subsequently crowned champions of the Nedbank Cup competition.
Notably, Head Coach Baxter’s squad that took the field during the final against Matsatsantsa on that day, includes seven players who have since moved on from the Soweto giants, while the rest are still donning the Amakhosi colours.
