After Ajax Cape Town labelled Mamelodi Sundowns boss Patrice Motsepe their "number one customer", recalls the deals between the two clubs over the years.

To this effect, Ajax took to their Twitter account to wish the mining magnate and prominent business mogul a happy birthday while also poking fun at the number of players he has since snapped up from Ikamva.

Upon reflection, Motsepe's relationship with the Urban Warriors began back in July 2007 when The Brazilians swooped on midfielder Brent Carelse, who was 25 years old at the time.
