Can The ‘Big Three’ Fly The SA Flag High In Africa? Reader’s Voice

Default

Finally, all of Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will represent South Africa in continental competition, namely the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederations Cup.

For years, Pirates and Chiefs have been the flagship teams in the PSL, with both clubs still able to attract large numbers to their respective stadiums.

However, for the past four seasons, Mamelodi Sundowns seemed to have dominated the local game and even won the CAF Champions League in 2016.

That said, can the ‘Big Three’ do SA football proud this season and do well continentally?

At least all of them tasted CAF success before with Pirates winning the then CAF champions cup(1995),Chiefs - Africa cup winners cup (2001) and finally the Mighty Downs -CAF Champions League.

Unfortunately none of these aforementioned teams deserve the African Giants status unless we embrace mediocrity

Pirates and chiefs dominates the league in attracting many spectators to the stadium. Sundowns had dominated the league even won Car championship. Wonderful difference
