#sundowns, they want to dismantle this teams of soweto everytime we play tournament chief n pirates. We need Telekom Cup back because it was an election from supporters not a direct pick from sponsor managers.

We have really idiots here. They don't find toilet thy find chiefs. All of u talking for the sake of talking, did u wonder why every pe-season they want chiefs in it, cos it's irriplaceble big football brand in Saturday. U can all try to find fame for u n ur so called small teams via chiefs name by fact remains, u will never replace chiefs.

For me it's good pre season match to see where the two teams will be when the season starts. The winner via full time will go far next season.
