Bafana Bafana's big Venda-born centre-back started his career for Bloemfontein Celtic, before joining Kaizer Chiefs amid some controversy in July 2012.

Mamelodi Sundowns made a bigger offer to Celtic, but 'Tower' stood firm, insisting he join his childhood favourites instead.

Mathoho has been embraced by the Amakhosi faithful, and made his debut for South Africa on May 14, 2011 against Tanzania in a friendly.
