10. Eric Sono – Jomo Sono and Jomo’s sons [Bamuza and Matsilele]
When we talk about fathers and sons who made it as soccer players in South African football, the first names that come to our minds are Sono’s. It is because Eric Sono and his son, Jomo, were great ambassadors of the game albeit the testing apartheid era during their times. Both are respected legends of Orlando Pirates. Jomo went on to be a highly successful coach and coached Bafana Bafana at the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan whilst he also won a few cups domestically with his own club Jomo Cosmos where two of his sons Bamuza and Matsilele are also playing.
