Soweto Derby Fever – What Chiefs & Pirates Had To Say…

Soweto Derby fever has hit South Africa once again as Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates prepare to do battle, and some of the main characters were in the same room on Wednesday...

Check out some images from inside today's press conference in the gallery above!

Lebogang Manyama, Khama Billiat, Fortune Makaringe, Innocent Maela and both coaches, Ernst Middendorp and Rulani Mokwena, were all in attendance in Killarney this afternoon ahead of Saturday's bumper clash, and the Premier Soccer League shared some of their thoughts going into the game.

Fortune Makaringe - Pirates:


Rulani Mokwena - Pirates:
