Supporters Club recently sat down with famous Kaizer Chiefs supporter Saddam Maake, and he shared with us the good and the bad from last weekend's CAF Champions League final first leg, which he attended. Here's what he had to say...
"I will tell you the good thing about going to support Sundowns last weekend first. The good thing is that Sundowns are very close to winning the star. We wish them good luck, they played well and didn't even concede a goal. It's gonna be very good for the country if they win it as it will increase the number of our teams competing in the competition. It will also be good for our national team. It will also encourage other teams to take the competition seriously. The President, Mr Motsepe, has invested a lot in Sundowns since he took over, and it is a local coach who is coaching his team," Maake said.
"And the bad… the bad thing would be if Sundowns go there and try to defend their 3-0 lead. They have to play. They must go there and play their fearless attacking game. At the stadium, we were sitting altogether, with Pirates, Chiefs, SuperSport and Sundowns. The song we all sang together was Asoze saphelamandla. After Sundowns scored, the song changed to Kabo Yellow, and then after the third goal, the song changed to Asambe Dolly. But after the game we (Chiefs supporters) were told that we cannot sing with them because we don't have a star. The Chiefs supporters were angry but I calmed the situation down and told them that I know supporters, even when a player misses a chance, they boo him, but when the same player scores barely a minute after they booed him, they sing about him and say 'Akekho ofana naye'.
"My plea to my fellow supporters is that we must unite to be able to conquer Africa."
Do you think Sundowns can bring the star home?
