The mighty Amakhosi set all kinds of records along the way, including winning the league with a record number of points (69) and by the biggest ever margin over the runners-up (12 points). Not only did the team boast the most solid defence, with a best ever 19 clean sheets in 30 matches, it also went on a record of 19 consecutive unbeaten games.
“Tonight has marked the culmination of a remarkable season in the club’s history,” said Kaizer Chiefs executive chairman Kaizer Motaung. “The way in which we dominated the PSL and the new records set, have made this past season one of the most memorable in our 45 years of existence. Kaizer Chiefs aspire to achieve the highest standards and we strive to win every game. I feel inspired by the greatness we have demonstrated over the course of the 30 match marathon that is the PSL season and the sprint that is a cup competition. Congratulations to everyone who has contributed in achieving this goal.”
Kaizer Chiefs’ superiority in 2014/15 started with clinching the MTN8 trophy. This demonstrated that the team meant serious business from the beginning of season. The dominance was also acknowledged by the PSL with the Glamour Boys taking home most of the accolades at the end-of-season awards ceremony held on Sunday.
“I have nothing but praise for my players, whose dedication throughout the campaign has deservedly been rewarded by the results we have achieved,” Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter reacted. “I always stress that the league title is a must have, while breaking records is a nice to have. Still, these records are proof of how phenomenal we did this season.
