Is a PSL return the right move for Zungu?

Although the start of the season wasn't exactly what Kaizer Chiefs were looking for, they have picked up 9 points from their last 5 games, and they’re sitting in second place on the log, only behind a dominant Mamelodi Sundowns. Picking up a vital win [and bragging rights] against Orlando Pirates (before the International break), PSL fans were wary of the fact that Amakhosi could lose momentum upon the return of the league. However, that was not the case; picking up wins against Maritzburg United and Swallows FC. It cannot go unnoticed that Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly have been the driving force behind Chiefs’ seasonal turnaround, with the duo linking up the midfield to the attack. Speaking on the SL Podcast, former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise says that ‘Chief’s season cannot be based on that victory.’ In another turn of events, Kaizer Chiefs are looking to bolster their midfield by signing former Rangers FC and current Amiens FC midfielder Bongani Zungu. Zungu represented Mamelodi Sundowns during the years 2013-2016, where he made 58 appearances. Chiefs fans will be licking their lips to get Zungu’s signature, but former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts is scratching his head. Roberts says “You’re in Europe, you’ve done all the hard work to get there, why on earth would you come back?”

On the latest episode of The Carwash” former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise discuss the recent interest Kaizer Chiefs have expressed towards Bongani Zungu. The crew also react to the departure of Brandon Truter and co from Swallows FC. Later in the show, Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfiled joins the show to talk about the 2021 Ballon d’Or ceremony, which saw Lionel Messi win a record 7th golden ball. Kurt also breaks down the interim coach that Manchester United have signed.

Is Broos In The Wrong?

It has been just over a month since Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena addressed the media in a rage of fury; directed towards Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos. Coach Rulani claimed that several of their first-team regulars have returned from national team duty either injured or burnt-out, and there appears to have been no warning from the Bafana medical team. Rulani stood by his actions, stating “There is no data!” After Coach Rulani made these comments, another DStv Premiership coach came forward about a similar issue, this time in Stuart Baxter. The Kaizer Chiefs coach admitted that his gripe towards Broos was that the Bafana Bafana coach made comments about using Njabulo Ngcobo as a defender, much to Baxter’s disgust (who uses Ngcobo as a midfielder!) SAFA has now joined the party and has commented on the matter, asking Broos to ‘hash’ out these public spats with the respective coaches. Speaking on the matter, former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, and Bafana star Teko Modise sides with the player in question saying “this is unfair and an insult.”

Later in the show, Roberts and Modise are joined by Soccer Laduma’s International News correspondent Kurt Buckerfield to discuss all things Manchester United after the (now) former man in charge Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked from the top position earlier in the week. Kurt also brings world-class analysis to chat about the latest round of UEFA Champions League fixtures.

On the latest episode of the Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts, and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana star Teko Modise discuss the latest media brawl between coaches and the reasoning behind it. The crew also chat about the calls from fans for Truter's job at Swallows.

Teko:"I Felt How Hlompho Feels"

In light of all of the football drama that has occurred over the past week, a story that may have slipped people's minds is that of Hlompho Kekena and Mamelodi Sundowns reaching an amicable agreement for the former captain to leave the Tswana club. Kekena first joined Sundowns in 2011, leaving Bloemfontein Celtic. Out of all of Hlompho’s appearances, none stand out more than his performance in the Sundowns vs Powerlines game, where the former Mamelodi Sundowns captain helped himself to a remarkable 7 goals; Sundowns won that game 24-0! “Kekena has shown his professionalism for years and he has been a true ambassador to the game,” says Sean Roberts. “Kekena has won 12 trophies in his ten-year spell with the Brazilians, he has been a stalwart in the team.” Included in those 12 trophies are 6 league titles and a CAF Champions League, but recently Hlompho has revealed the only regret he has: “I’m willing to trade one of my medals if anyone has. It's important for me because I have a five-year-old son who is always telling me about the MTN, so now I need to understand the feeling, I don’t know the feeling,” Hlompho quirked. Speaking on the matter, former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star, Teko Modise (current Mamelodi Sundowns ambassador) says “myself and Hlompho had conversations [that cannot be mentioned] well before anything.”

On the latest episode of The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts, and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, and Bafana Bafana Star Teko Modise analyze the recent drama surrounding Bafana Bafana and Ghana after the black stars top their group in controversial fashion. Since the fixture, FIFA has responded to the formal complaint that SAFA has issued regarding the match officials. The crew also discuss the latest news with Gavin Hunts’ suspension from Chippa United and the new ‘caretaker coach.’ Only on the #SLPodcast

Passionate Pitso Pays The Price!

Last Friday saw an intense Cairo Derby take place between the two footballing giants of Egypt, Al Ahly and Zamalek. Given the importance and intensity of the rivalry between the two capital based sides, the match progressed from start to finish rather smoothly, except for a few minor incidents which has now seen former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane and his Al Ahly team issued fines by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA); Al Ahly came out victorious during the matchup, thrashing Zamalek 5-3. Although the fines may not seem that important, they were issued to Pitso and his coaching staff for entering the field of play while celebrating certain goals during the clash. Speaking on the SL Podcast’s ‘The Carwash,’ former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star, Teko Modise (who of course played under coach Pitso) has come out and said “If Pitso goes a season without a fine, it was a bad season.” This fine is a testimony to the passion that coach Pitso has, the drive and the will to succeed. Football comes first for Pitso and he is able to draw his team and coaching staff into his own ideologies of the game, which evidently proves to be rather successful. The fact of the matter is, Pitso doesn’t care about the fine, he cares about winning and doing well.

On the latest episode of The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie, Sean Roberts and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star, Teko Modise discuss the latest news from the local game, with rumors of Gavin Hunt’s job being on the line after a run of poor results. The guys also talk about some advice that a former Downs coach has issued to Mokwena and his co-coaches. Later in the show, Soccer Laduma’s International news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield links up to discuss the return of Xavi Hernandez and the latest with Ole Gunner Solskjaer.

“Pitso Fined Me For That”

After a mouth-watering MTN8 final, which saw Mamelodi Sundowns get their hands on the trophy for the first time, the weekend directly after will bring arguably the biggest match in Africa to our screens, the Soweto Derby. This fixture is draped in history and pride with the two teams from Soweto looking to claim bragging rights. Earlier this year, it was the Buccaneers who emerged victorious after beating their neighbors 2-1 at the Orlando Stadium which means Chiefs will be itching to come out on top. The Amakhosi faithful have seen a slight turnaround in their performances with a key linkup coming into fruition with Keagan Dolly and Khama Billiat, however, a loss to a well ironed-out Stellenbosch FC this past matchday means that Chiefs will need to bounce back to the best of their ability against a Pirates side who managed to overcome Sekhukhune United 2-1.

Rumours of Rulani being offered jobs not only locally, but also out of South Africa have been circulating in the media and the Mamelodi Sundowns coach and his agent have come out and said “ Coach Rulani is focused on Sundowns''.” Speaking on the SL Podcast’s The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise says that “I Know Rulani’s Ambitions, he wants to win trophies.” Modise goes on to say “With Mokwena currently playing CAF football weekly, why would he go play games on astroturf and no shoes?”

On the latest episode of The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise discuss the upcoming Soweto Derby after analyzing this past weekend’s MTN8 final. The gents also discuss Rulani Mokwena and the job offers he has received, on AND off our shores.

Does Mokwena Have A Point?

With the return of international football, the players returning from the Bafana camps seem to be overplayed, rundown and exhausted. This is a cause for concern as these players cannot perform to the best of their abilities when representing their respective clubs. Current head coach of current DStv Premiership log leaders and title holders Mamelodi Sundowns Rulani Mokwena recently came out and claimed that several of his first-team regulars returned from International duties being burnt-out or injured with no warning from the Bafana medical team. In a direct quote, Mokwena says “ With the Bafana players, it’s a very difficult situation. We can’t even communicate with the medical department, we don’t know the itinerary of Bafana, we don’t know the training program.” Speaking on the Sl Podcast’s The Carwash, former Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns, and Bafana Bafana star, Teko Modise agrees with Rulani Mokwena and expresses confusion towards the Bafana camp. “Why are the players doing fitness tests when on International duty?” He continues to go on by saying that “Surely if you’ve been selected for the International team, you should be fit?”

Staying local, but venturing out of South Africa into Egypt, former Mamelodi Sundowns coach, and serial title winner, Pitso Mosimane has recently come out and spoke to the press about Al Ahly’s decision ti allow him to see out his R54million-a-season contract. By remaining at the Egyptian giants for as long as he has, coach Pitso has become the first coach in five years to be in the hot seat for longer than a year.

On the latest episode of The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts sits down with former Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns, and Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise to discuss the current state of footballers who return to their clubs after international duties. The crew also speak about coach Pitso’s contract with Egyptian giants Al Ahly, and what financial costs are involved in not

Are Teams Doing Anything About This?

With the South African Government vaccination roll-out plan well underway with over 19 million jabs administered, questions are being asked about fans attending live soccer matches and when they will be allowed into stadiums. Under the current adjusted level 1 lockdown regulations, 2000 people are allowed to attend outdoor gatherings, however, our stadiums still sit empty, and clubs continue to lose ticket sales. During the second leg between Bafana Bafana and Ethiopia, 2000 vaccinated spectators were permitted to enter the FNB stadium, but since then, the PSL board have discussed this match and have reduced said number of vaccinated fans right down to 165 people. During the MTN8 final, which is only a matter of days away, the PSL will attempt this new strategy to get a better understanding of ticket allocations, and protocol safety. During the latest episode of The Carwash, former Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise, elaborates on the current format of allowing fans into stadiums, asking “are teams doing anything about this?” The general continues by saying that “teams should be advocating and promoting vaccinations to get their fans back into stadiums.” This poses the question, why aren't teams doing anything to get their fans into stadiums?

‘We’ve Seen This Movie Before'

With the 2021/2022 DStv Premiership season well underway, it is no surprise to see reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns sitting at the top of the log, with SuperSport United, Stellenbosch FC, and Orlando Pirates finishing off the top 4. Shockingly enough, Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs find themselves in 13th position and have only managed to secure four points from a possible twelve; winning and having drawn one game, with two back-to-back losses. Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter has been criticized in the media for being too defensive-minded, often fielding defensive players over offensive players. Yes, defensive players are needed, but a balance between the two is crucial for certain playing styles. Speaking on the SL Podcast’s The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns, and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts, and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise both dive deep into the problems Chiefs are facing and ask the big questions. Both Sean and Teko agree that things need to be switched up a bit, ‘players are out of position which then brings on frustration’ says Teko Modise, who continues to say ‘we’ve seen this movie before” when discussing the matter of the defensive line-up Chiefs have chosen to go with. All of this comes after Chiefs were embarrassed by newly promoted side Royal AM, losing 4-1 over the weekend. ‘Chiefs had control up until the 20th minute or so’ says Teko. Both Sean and Teko agree that if experience is proving to bring issues, then go to youth and bring in youngsters, especially in defense.

On the latest episode of The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts, and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, and Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise discuss the ongoing problems Kaizer Chiefs are facing, offering a neutral perspective. The crew also gives thanks to Bongani Khumalo for his service to the game after hearing about the Bafana Bafana legends' retirement.

I wanted to find myself, peace and sanity - Teko

Hlompho Kekena is a player that is very special to the local game, having spent 10 years with Mamelodi Sundowns, the serial winner’s time at Masandawana came to an end on 31 August, after the club released the player, however, Hlompo feels that he isn’t ready to move on and retire from the beautiful game. It has been reported that Sundowns has offered Kekana an Ambassadorial role at the club, which could continue his ever-growing legacy. Speaking on the SL Podcast’s ‘The Carwash,’ former Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates star Teko Modise (also a former teammate of Kekana) speaks on the matter of Hlompo’s retirement, Teko of course has more than enough knowledge behind him and experience; so for ‘the General’ to comment with real-life situations that he faced during the end of his playing career will come at no surprise. Teko continues to say that ‘Hlompho should retire when he is satisfied.’ ‘ When it comes to Hlompho, he still has a lot to offer,’ says Teko Modise. Modise goes on to explain his personal experience with retirement, and what he wanted to achieve before hanging up his boots.

In the latest episode of The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts, and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, and Bafana Bafana Star Teko Modise break down the situation that Hlompho Kekana finds himself in.

With the first half of Round 1 in the African Conference done and dusted, it is Bafana Bafana who are leading Group G thanks to tallying 4 points from a possible 6 after drawing with Zimbabwe and beating Ghana 1-0. For years, Bafana Bafana has struggled to build up a team for the future, and things are finally looking like they’re getting back on track. However, this form needs to continue for Bafana to reach Qatar 2022.

When Was The Last Time Percy Danced?

It is no secret the Percy Tau’s move to Al Ahly came as a shock to the continent, however, being reunited with Pitso will bring great joy to Percy as we all know the relationship between the two South Africans is a very special one. But the question remains, why would Percy leave arguably the best league in the world in the English Premier League? One can only speculate that this move came from a place of hope of playing the beautiful game again, as Tau has seen minimal game time during his spell with Brighton and Hove Albion. With Percy reaching the age where a big contract becomes slim, this move to Al Ahly may be exactly what he needs in his career, not only at club level but also at an International level. Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates Star Teko Modise wishes Percy well for the future in the latest episode of the Carwash.

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’ “The Carwash,” former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts, and former Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates Star Teko Modise discuss this transfer in great depth.

Later in the show, Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfiled joins the show to discuss the latest in international transfer business!
