Who Will Step Up To Chiefs' Throne?

The second-half of the Absa Premiership is set to resume in the month of February and league leaders Kaizer Chiefs remain the team to beat. Unbeaten and unshaken in their pursuit of glory, the Fan Park crew will now take a look at coaches and clubs who could authentically rival Chiefs for the league title.

Pitso Mosimane And Mamelodi Sundowns

Being the number one rival to Chiefs, Sundowns will hope to emulate their title wining campaign of last season. En-route to Downs’ title success, the Brazilians put together an amazing run of nine straight wins which ultimately knocked Chiefs off their perch - winning their sixth PSL league title in the process.

Eric Tinkler And Orlando Pirates

The Sea Robbers may have been riding the waves of many misfortunes this season, after losing their captain Senzo Meyiwa in death and former coach Vladimir Vermezovic after he had resigned from his post at the club last year. However, we cannot deny the fact that in terms of quality and pedigree, there will always be a chance that Pirates will be competing for honours.

Gordon Igesund And SuperSport United

After failing to lift the shattered spirits of the Bafana national team last year, Igesund joined a SuperSport United outfit who needed guidance. Upon taking over, Matsatsantsa managed to get their groove back and even won the 2014 Telkom Knockout in the process. SSU were also serious buyers in the January transfer window, further indicating their ambition to compete at the highest possible level.

Having said that, who do you think will prove to be Baxter and Chiefs' hardest rival this season?
