Can Rama Break The 'Downs To Chiefs' Curse?

Kaizer Chiefs have announced the singing of eight new players following the mass exodus of 20 earlier this year. There are many talking points among the new signings, but arguably the biggest was the acquisition of former Mamelodi Sundowns captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele, and the supporters are beginning to worry that he will fall victim to the same curse as Kenny Niemach, among others.

It seems that, while many supporters are elated at the news of Mphahlele being signed to Amakhosi, others have seen a common trend with players who choose to go from Sundowns to Chiefs, and one of them has made an effort to forewarn Mphahlele.

"I wish him good luck, truth be told he will need it. History has taught me that former Downs players never succeed at Chiefs. Kenny Niemach betrayed us by faking a move to Manning Rangers before we saw him in Chiefs colours, where he only scored one or two goals in the Coca-Cola Cup. Linda Buthelezi was a household name at Downs, only to be ordinary after joining Chiefs. Zane Moosa went from being a major brand in SA football to nothing. Now Gaxa seems to be the latest victim of the curse. Whether 'Rama' will break the curse, only time will tell." – Setlaboswana

What do you think of this curse? Is it overrated? Or are there more cases?
