Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has given his view on whether PSL clubs are doing enough to honour South African legends while they are still alive.

Orlando Pirates legend John Moeti, who sadly passed away on Monday, was regarded as a role model to many professionals coming through the ranks in his playing days but was also one of the former players who were not involved directly with the club post his playing days.

Zwane was asked whether PSL clubs are doing enough to give back to the legends once they have hung up their boots and explained that it's up to the individuals to keep themselves relevant.

"When it comes to the legends, it's what you do in order for you to remain relevant, you know, in the game. Some of us after our playing days we still want to add value in many ways," Zwane told the media in a Nedbank Cup press conference ahead of their game against Maritzburg United.

"Some of us, we decide to stay away from the game completely, so I know that most of the teams they try their level best. You must have seen most of the teams now they try to bring back the legends to come and help the game grow," he said.

'Mangethe' went on to also caution that the teams can only do so much and it's also up to legends to prove that they can add value to the teams.

"So it boils down to one thing, what is it that we want to do as legends, so I would not think that the teams did not want to help. I think the teams, they have played their part but also they are not gonna do it to each and every one of us," he carried on.

"It's about the passion, it's about the love for the game, it's about what you can contribute, then the teams will take it from there," he added.

Chiefs will tackle Maritzburg United on Friday evening in the Nedbank Cup sold out last 32 clash at Harry Gwala Stadium.
