Although kit-managers are a key part of the professional game, some football fans could go an entire lifetime without knowing who that individual is for their club. But we’ve spotted a kit manager who seems like the coolest of them all in the DStv Premiership and it’s Maritzburg United’s Zola Luthuli! 

Before we back our contentious claim, there are a few admissions to be made. One of them is that kit managers are unsung heroes who ensure that teams have all the necessary gear to fulfil match requirements.

Secondly, due to the fact that they operate primarily behind the scenes and as a member of the backroom staff, they aren’t as prominently known as the players and coaching staff. 

Therefore, it comes as a reasonable surprise to see who performs this duty. And Luthuli’s incredible swag is very much like that of many top PSL ballers, as he sports the freshest outfits and sneakers, including Balenciaga! 

Luthuli has a vibrant and youthful style, coupled with some of the freshest items from high-end labels such as Gucci. 

Did you know? 

The KwaZulu-Natal side’s highest ever topflight league finish was fourth-spot in the 2017/18 season and the player who has made the most appearances for the club in the league is former goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters.

With Maritzburg’s star player Bongokuhle Hlongwane having left the club to join US Major League Soccer outfit Minnesota United, who is the best player in the team?
