Dear Wits: When Your’re A Champion Every Team Brings Their 'A' Game - Reader’s Voice
Bidvest Wits showed character in the previous league campaign. How they took one game at a time, fought tooth and nail to win the PSL title for the first time was amazing.
Wits became the Absa Premiership champions and was a real threat in South Africa's top-flight football. Their display sent a message that Wits is a force to be reckoned with and a formidable team capable of beating any PSL team.
As a result, teams who played against Wits came out all guns blazing, as Wits is now that team that every PSL club wants to beat.
This is the same story of the Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates. Any team that faces one of the two always brings their 'A' game, performing in a way that they wouldn't when facing other teams in PSL.
We saw the same thing with Mamelodi Sundowns after they won CAF Champions League, they were the benchmark and they struggled after that.
So Wits, welcome to the life of a champion, this is how it feels like.
Don't be shocked when the woes continue from the bad start of the season you been having.
