Doc: I’m not trying to take anything away from the two Soweto giants, but…

SportPesa

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 01, 2018 02:50 PM

In this week’s SportPesa Clubhouse column, ambassador Doctor Khumalo shared his views on the upcoming season which is scheduled to take place this weekend, Saturday, August 4. There are some headline fixtures on the cards with Mamelodi Sundowns playing hosts to Kaizer Chiefs and Highlands Park getting their first taste of PSL action away against Orlando Pirates.

“Obviously most of the teams would like to start the season on a high note in order to set the tone. The first three league games are very important, and every coach will tell you that they want to go for all nine points. If you lose your first three games, getting back into the swing of things becomes like climbing a mountain.

“Like I said, this season promises to be more exciting than the previous one, which wasn’t easy at all. The competition was so tight and, from what I have seen, it looks like Mamelodi Sundowns will continue with their dominance. They haven’t changed much, and they’ve also acquired some really good quality. I think they are one of the teams with the best quality all-round, but you’ve got to bear in mind that they still have to compete in the CAF Champions League.

“The focus is now on Sundowns and they’ve earned that right! In the past, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs used to enjoy the attention given to Sundowns now and, like I said, Sundowns have earned it because they’ve been consistently on top of their game. I’m not trying to take anything away from the two Soweto giants, but Sundowns have taken their game to another level and that’s a fact.”

The Bafana Bafana legend went on to talk about the local clubs and the players that they have managed to sign for the season.

What dominance are you talking about cap bender? Sundowns have never dominated the PSL as a whole, I wouldn't say they have taken their game to the next but rather the Soweto giants have taken their game a step backwards

Which dominance is Doc referring to.We won the league last season and the season before we won nothing.Maybe if he can say Sundowns will continue to be better than Chiefs and Pirates i can understand.

You sound hurting. You and your friend Tebogo Moloi don't take defeat well. The fact that you not at Chiefs and Tebogo not at Pierats hurts you. I am Chiefs fan ,but the coach that challenged the league on his first season after he took over from the team that finishes 11th previous season. And that coach brought in almost new starting 11. You should have said something about Pierats
