Sundowns ‘B’ Team Could Win The League

With the return of the PSL being approved by Sports & Recreation Minister Nathi Mthethwa, the title race between Kaizer Chiefs & Mamelodi Sundowns is on everyone’s mind. Amakhosi lead the premiership standings with 48 points, 4 ahead of Masandawana who have a game in hand. The health & fitness levels of their squads will be under a microscope, and if European leagues are anything to go by, fans can expect to see injuries and fatigue when matches commence again. This means squad depth will play a major role in the PSL’s finale.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns & Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Sean Roberts did not mince his words when explaining why Sundowns are a major threat to Chiefs in the titles race. Speaking on The Carwash podcast, Roberts stated “In terms of depth, in terms of quality that you’ve got on the bench, Sundowns ‘B’ team could easily win the PSL as well. I’d be very disappointed to see Chiefs throw it away after all the hard work they’ve done but in terms of depth, without a doubt Sundowns [could win].”

What Would You Do If Kaizer Chiefs Came Calling? - The Carwash

Will Chiefs’ Transfer Targets Wait? The Carwash Crew Debates.

Back in February, Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs were banned for two transfer window periods as punishment for their allegedly unlawful signing of Madagascar international Andriamirado "Dax" Andrianarimanana in 2018. The ruling means that Amakhosi are unable to sign new players until June 2021. While Chiefs planned to appeal the ruling, this process was delayed by the global coronavirus pandemic, and the new date for their appeal proceedings is set for after the current transfer window in September.

If this ruling stands, any current Chiefs targets would have to wait until September for Amakhosi to make their appeal, which would potentially allow them to sign in January 2021. In the latest episode of The Carwash, former Orlando Pirates star Teko Modise debates whether players would be willing to wait that long for the opportunity. “Of course it’s a big risk for players, but it’s also an opportunity that comes once in a lifetime. But I think those who will benefit with this are the ones with their own clearances in hand waiting for Kaizer Chiefs”, he stated on SL Radio.

Former Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Sean Roberts added “If [the ban] does get lifted, and I have a sneaky suspicion it will, and the players are still in demand then they’re cashing in you know? But it’s a massive risk, what do you do? Do you say no to another club just on the hope that a ban doesn’t get lifted? It’s a tough one, I wouldn’t like to be in their shoes”.

Teko on Benni’s 2010 snub... - The Carwash

As South Africa celebrates 10 years since the FIFA World Cup was hosted in Mzansi, former Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise dishes on his experience at the camp and how the team reacted to Benni McCarthy’s infamous snub from the final squad. This comes after Benni McCarthy’s candid interview with the SA Football Journalists Association (Safja) in which he revealed the motive behind his 2010 FIFA World Cup snub

“Yes, it was heartbreaking, the fact that Benni wasn’t there, because we knew what he would bring, especially to us the younger ones,” Modise said on The Carwash Podcast. “I don’t remember losing a game with Benni on the pitch, for the national team”, he continued, “I don’t think Benni was given that fair chance”.

Does Gavin Hunt Want To Coach Kaizer Chiefs?- The Carwash

According to reports, Kaizer Chief’s interest in Gavin Hunt remains despite the Bidvest Wits coach stating that he would prefer not to work for a Big 3 team. Rumours surrounding Amakhosi mentor Ernst Middendorp’s have persisted, and it has been suggested that Middendorp could leave even if Chiefs win the Absa Premiership title.

During a recent online press conference which Gavin Hunt gave to the South African Football Journalist's Association, he seemed to categorically deny any rumours linking him with a move away from The Students. While discussing a meeting which he had with an unnamed chairman, Hunt stated “I said, 'Mr Chairman, there's only one problem here, you've got four to five bosses here, I'm the boss'". Despite this, Amakhosi’s interest hasn’t wavered.

Teko: What Orlando Pirates needs... The Carwash

Former Buccaneers star Teko Modise gives his thoughts on what the team needs in order to end their 6-year trophy drought. “For Orlando Pirates, the reality is they need additions into the team, yes they have a good squad but they need maybe three or four additions not merely based on talent, but also the leadership”, he told SL Radio.

Despite a large squad overhaul during the last transfer window, which saw 15 players leave the team while 11 new signings were made, Orlando Pirates are heavily linked with the likes of Thulani Hlatshwayo, Richard Ofori & Bradley Grobler. Modise describes these potential signings as necessary to the side’s style of play. He adds, “For those who believe in structural football, they’ll tell you that the spine of the team is important, like the striker, the central midfield, a centre back or a goalie”.

The two-time PSL Footballer Of The Year winner also comments on whether he believes that Pirates supporters will be patient next season, stating “If Chiefs win the league this time around, they’ll expect [Pirates] to win it next season”.
