The Star Is A Choice

A very concerned Supporters Club member has written in to Soccer Laduma regarding the new star that has been added above the Mamelodi Sundowns badge.

Lufuno Mulaudzi called in to SLSC earlier and had this to say:

"First off, let me say congratulations to Mamelodi Sundowns for winning the star. However, I want to point out that this whole star business has been blown way out of proportion," he said.

"People must understand that the star is a choice, the media has been misleading people. The star is a choice! FIFA does not give it to you, there are plenty of teams that use the star in different ways.

"Look at Barcelona, how many Champions Leagues have they won? And they have no stars. Uruguay has four stars but they have only won two World Cups? The other two are from the Copa America Competition, so why doesn't Bafana have a star then from 1996?

"People must not blow this out of proportion. There are plenty of teams that could have a star. People must remember that Orlando Pirates had a star above their badge before they won the competition in 1995. I wanted to let people know the truth."

Do you agree with Lufuno?
