Lovers: The Days Of Pirates And Chiefs Are Gone

Lovers Mohlala Discusses Chiefs And Pirates' Fading Dominance

By Kyle Smith - Sep 02, 2017 06:03 PM @KyleLaduma

Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender, Lovers Mohlala, believes that the days where Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates were the dominant forces in South African football are over.

Lebese And Manyisa Registered For CAF CL

Mamelodi Sundowns completed the signings of George Lebese and Oupa Manyisa from Chiefs and Pirates respectively in the recently closed transfer window and Mohlala has said that it’s because of the Soweto giants’ fading dominance that their players would rather join the reigning African champions.

“I don’t think Sundowns are stealing rivals’ players. Those Days of Orlando Pirates and (Kaizer) Chiefs are gone. The players that are playing for Chiefs and Pirates want to go to Sundowns – the winds have changed and now it’s no longer Pirates and Chiefs,” he explained.

Confirmed: Brockie Hands In Transfer Request

The 41-year-old went on to say that new arrivals such as George Lebese need to keep their heads down, work hard and, eventually, integration into the team will follow.

“One thing that they need to do is to adopt the attitude that (George) Lebese has, where he’s said that he’s come to play and to represent Sundowns. Once time goes on, he will find out how they work, what they do. By the time you get to that level, you become the best.”

Another public stunt directed to Motsepe, so he can adopt this Lovers-Plus! Motsepe , here is your prodigal son who went and chow his money with dem ladies-grooving and lived on expensive liquor and braaiwors...he is coming back home, please give him a job? Even if it is to wipe your shoes, it will be fine, sir. Please?

Who is Lovers after all!? I only knew someone who who once scored a penalty when Sundowns was playing against Chiefs and went celebrating shaking against the tuff like he was getting laid...If that is the one, urghh-shame, he is entitled to his cond+m name's beliefs. He should be a Lovers Plus by now, i guess?

@Mail4lyf Exactly my point. Lebese was no longer regular at Chiefs. He served his time at Chiefs and he is not the first to join our rivals and will not be the last. RISE KHOSI RISE!!!!!

The day they can fill at least their small stadium when they are playing a derby then they can be 50% compared to Pirates. Pitso knows that. Motsepe knows that. And who cares about a nobody legend?

the use of word "legend" and jethro mohlala in a single sentence is unconstitutional; he is just another former ndunu (sa)

People can deny it, but the truth is the so called Soweto giants DONT exist anymore. Our league has became more competitive that even the big teams like Pirates and Chiefs goes for like three seasons without any silverware. Pirates had a bad run last season and their noisy neibough we laughing about it and to be quite frank what did they achieve themselves , nothing. They had their chance but now I think its time they both take a back seat, shut up and enjoy good football from the like of Bidvest Wits, Supersport and Mamelodi Sundowns.
