In This Week's Edition Of Soccer Laduma
In anticipation of this week's edition of Soccer Laduma, we preview some of the features included in issue number 946. The latest edition will be out on the shelves tomorrow, Wednesday, November 4.
TKO Soweto Derby preview: After Kaizer Chiefs' comprehensive 3-1 drubbing by Orlando Pirates last Saturday, most of the country was left gob-smacked.
Now, only one week later and with another Soweto Derby on the horizon, Amakhosi have the opportunity to set the record straight and exact some revenge in the semi-finals of the Telkom Knockout. By the same token, Bucs have a rare opportunity to inflict further humiliation on Chiefs and sink the dagger even deeper into their flesh.
The upcoming Derby promises to be a real cracker with both teams having a point to prove! Check out our cracking preview which will result in redemption or humiliation.
Tshwane Derby preview: It seems that the story of this week is all about the derby, and in Tshwane another fierce derby battle is brewing.
With a growing rivalry between Mamelodi Sundowns - one of the undisputed giants of South African football - and SuperSport United - a team which has been known to cause upsets in the past - the Telkom semi-final between these two powerhouses of Mzansi soccer is set to be a real humdinger.
As both teams are vying for a place in the TKO final, one must fall in Tshwane! Who will it be? We speak to those in the know to find out.
Prince Nxumalo: After a blinding start to the PSL season, Prince Nxumalo collapsed on two occasions in the tunnel prior to a game. Both cases were diagnosed as epileptic seizures.
These incidents landed the Ajax Cape Town man in the intensive care unit (ICU) and have undoubtedly put the future of his career in some doubt, as his condition resulted in him being unable to honour a call-up to Bafana Bafana during this period.
Where is he now on the road to recovery and how does he see him setting his career back on the right path? In a highly emotional interview, we chatted to Nxumalo himself to find out.
Also in edition 946 we have… an interview with ex-SuperSport and Black Aces striker Dino Ndlovu, who is now plying his trade in Cyprus, we hear from league leaders Platinum Stars’ head coach, Cavin Johnson, and we speak to AmaZulu’s Mark van Heerden.
Siyagobhoza is full of the usual tasty treats you have come to expect from Soccer Laduma, and this week we have news on a Chiefs star who is yet to open up talks with the club, hear about an Amakhosi keeper Bucs are showing an interest in, and learn about a Downs striker looking to jump ship at Chloorkop.
