Football politics is growing every season in the Premier Soccer League. Lately, we are experiencing a different atmosphere with Chiefs supporters, who seem to have turned to support Bidvest Wits.
On Thursday night, Chiefs supporters were spotted rallying behind Gavin Hunt’s 'Clever Boys', as they managed to collect all three points against Chiefs’ cross town rivals, Orlando Pirates.
The reason behind the Chiefs faithful support could be that they know that their club is out of the league race, hence they are supporting the Students. Again, the fact that Wits are based in Johannesburg could be the reason for the support. Fans know that they would not like to see the league title return to Tshwane, considering that Mamelodi Sundowns are league contenders as well as defending champions.
Having said that, what do you make of Chiefs supporters actions? Do you think they are hoping to see Sundowns lose the title, or they just trying to forget that their club isn't doing well?
