Mamelodi Sundowns continue their quest for African glory, but do they have the backing of their fellow countrymen?
Not too long ago, Orlando Pirates were involved in the CAF Champions League and the support the Buccaneers had was an amazing sight to see. However, fast-forward to 2016, we seem to be talking a different story.
Pitso Mosimane and his charges have undoubtedly been the team to beat in both national and continental competitions, with the club showcasing a brand of football that keeps one glued to their television screens. Masandawana have successfully progressed through the competition in their search for an African star above their badge, and being just one match away from the final, they not only need the backing of their Kabo Yellow faithful, but that of the South African football-loving nation as a whole.
It is time to put our differences aside. Whether we are team Black and White, Black and Gold, or even Green and White, it all boils down to our country. It is time to put South African football back up on the pedestal!
Do you think Sundowns can defy all odds and win the CAF Champions League this season?
