Okocha: Sundowns Are SA's Top Team

African legend Jay-Jay Okocha has explained why he prefers watching Mamelodi Sundowns over Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see some images of Okocha's visit to Sundowns.

The Nigerian visited South Africa as part of the Bundesliga Legends Tour this past weekend, which saw him take part in a Facebook Q&A with Soccer Laduma readers.

One of the readers asked the Bundesliga ambassador which team, between Amakhosi, Buccaneers and Masandawana, he prefers, and his answer was as clear as daylight.

"Well, for me, I love Sundowns," he answered.

"I like the way they play. I don't think it is a fluke that they call them 'the Brazilians', you know.

"They look like FC Barcelona of South Africa."

During the Bundesliga Legends Tour, Okocha also visited Chloorkop for a meet-and-greet with Sundowns' first team and coach Pitso Mosimane.

You can read a full, exclusive interview with Okocha, during which he chats about South African talent Tashreeq Matthews' move to Borussia Dortmund and the upcoming clash between Bafana Bafana and Nigeria, in this week's Soccer Laduma, issue 1099, out in stores from tomorrow.
