Tyren Arendse, who played for many years of his career for Santos in Cape Town, has had notable stints with Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns respectively in his PSL career.

The central midfielder is looking at either Sundowns or Bidvest Wits to win the PSL title this season, while not ruling out Benni McCarthy’s Cape Town City in the race. 

“As I said, I think it’s going to be between Sundowns and Wits to win it. But obviously, as a Cape Town boy and for Benni, I'd say also Cape Town City. I think he (Benni) is done with playing with Wits and Sundowns, but I think he might have a big say coming towards the end of the season,” said Arendse.

“As for Chiefs and Pirates, there have been too many inconsistencies, you know. Pirates look decent and they look strong. But when you expect them to win games, they drop points. The way they play under Micho (Milutin Sredojevic), I think they play brilliant football but sometimes they need to just grind out the results. Sometimes that’s what it takes to get to the top,” added the 38-year-old.
