Johannesburg - South Africa's football club Kaizer Chiefs' home jersey got an international accolade after it was voted in the top 10 in the world by Unisport.
The recognition gave Chiefs the last laugh as the jersey had received much criticism on social media at home, but the Amakhosi found their voice this week after the jersey beat the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid, Juventus and Arsenal to second spot.
They lost out on the top spot to Italian outfit, Inter Milan’s away jersey.
"The new kit represents our vision for the new season. This year we're resetting; resetting our minds to reignite the passion and energy of the Amakhosi. Chiefs and Nike have created a new kit that is in line with our image and brand values. The technological advances and the stylish look of the jerseys will help enhance the boys’ performance on the field, and they will certainly look as glamorous as ever," said Jessica Motaung, Kaizer Chiefs’ marketing director.
Chiefs’ purple away jersey was also voted in the top 10 last year.
According to their kit sponsor Nike, the kit features high-performance materials and lightweight construction crafted to enhance ventilation and moisture management, and increase the athletes’ ease of motion and precision.
