How Downs Could Be Cleverer

Millions have been invested into Wits to make them into a force in the PSL. Yet, unlike Mamelodi Sundowns, who often splash out big at the expense of youth development, The Students are also passionate about developing their own young talents.

Wits' recent win in the SAFA U17 national championship is strong evidence of this. The fact that so many Wits juniors were called into the South Africa U17 side also testifies to a good working model.

CEO of Wits, Jose Ferreira, was pleased to see the success of the U17 team which ultimately feeds into the U19 team, thus providing a continuous stream of talented players to the Bidvest Wits PSL team.

With all this being said, should Downs be learning from the Clever Boys example? Because, as P Diddy once said in song, 'you got mo' money, you go mo' problems!'
