Kaizer Chiefs home jersey for the 2019/2020 has received some backlash locally, but it has just been recognized among the world’s best.
Unisport, a sports wear company, has voted the jersey among the top 10 in the world. This is not the first time the Chiefs are making it on the list, as their purple away jersey was also recognized last year.
