The Problem With Sundowns' Sirino Saga

Mamelodi Sundowns’ attacking midfielder Gaston Sirino appears to have missed out on the opportunity to play for Al Ahly under former boss Pitso Mosimane, with the Egyptian giants said to have moved on from a potential move for the Uruguayan after a breakdown in negotiations. Mosimane is quoted as saying "We move on with Gaston Sirino. I mean‚ you have seen what he said, he has spoken straight and openly about missing out on the opportunity to play for the biggest club on the continent.” The 29-Year-Old is currently contracted to Sundowns through June 2025, and given his age, he would understandably be keen on one last big career move.

In the latest episode of The SL Podcast’s “The Carwash” with former Orlando Pirates & Mamelodi Sundowns star Teko Modise and former Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts discuss the failed move, with Modise arguing that Sirino can’t be frustrated with Sundowns considering he signed an extension in June 2020. Modise stated “The problem comes when you want to leave and doesn’t happen, [but] you just renewed your contract 6-7 months ago and now when the move doesn’t happen you sulk. If you sign an extension and there’s no buyout clause, chief, stay there. You can’t sign an extension and then try to force your way out (6 months later)”.

"Hunt's Difficult Balancing Act At Chiefs"

Kaizer Chiefs have had a rocky start to the 2020/21 season, winning only twice in their opening ten DStv Premiership fixtures, with their second victory coming against Amazulu midweek. Amakhosi coach Gavin Hunt has had a long list of problems affecting the squad since he took the reigns in September 2019, including their FIFA transfer ban, a shortened pre-season, and injuries to star players such as Samir Nurkovic (who recently returned) and Khama Billiat (who has just been ruled out for two months). Hunt has had to rely on both youth and experience in his quest to turn Amakhosi’s fortunes around.

In the latest episode of The SL Podcast’s “The Carwash” with former Orlando Pirates & Mamelodi Sundowns star Teko Modise and former Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts, the ex-PSL veterans discuss how Hunt can strike a balance between Chiefs’ impressive youth players like Njabulo Blom & Keletso Sifama and senior players like Bernard Parker & WillardKatsande. Modise highlights that while Hunt needs younger players in the side for depth, their lack of experience can lead to inconsistency. Roberts also makes the case that senior stars have an impact beyond the pitch, arguing that fans shouldn’t discount their impact in the changing room.

The One Quality Pirates Are Lacking…

MTN8 champions Orlando Pirates had the chance to stamp their authority in the DStv Premiership when they took on Mamelodi Sundowns , but struggled against the defending league champions, losing last weekend’s meeting 1-0. The Soweto giants now trail Downs by eight points, and still have to take on an in-form Moroka Swallows side who are tied with Masandawana on points despite a lower goal difference. Former Orlando Pirates’ midfielder Teko Modise believes that there is one quality that the ‘Bucaneers’ have been lacking in the league.

Modise argues that his former side struggle against teams who are comfortable sitting back and defending the ball, rather than pressing and using a high defensive line. This was clear in their most recent match with Downs opting for five players in their backline which, as Modise points out in his analysis, made it difficult for Pirates’ front three of Lorch, Dzvukamanja & Pule to get in behind the lines and get chances in the final third. Listen to full show for more football banter from Modise and co-host Sean Roberts, formerly of Ajax Cape Town & Mamelodi Sundowns.

Hunt’s Tough Decision

Kaizer Chiefs’ struggles continued with a draw against Bloemfontein Celtic which sees the Soweto giants positioned 13th on the DStv Premiership table. Amakhosi have struggled to find their rhythm this season, and haven’t won a league match since October 27th when they defeated Chippa United 1-0. Several senior players have come under fire, including goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, who was dropped from the squad after two costly goalkeeping errors in back-to-back matches. Amakhosi coach Gavin Hunt is left with a tough decision as to whether Khune should remain as his number one choice goalie.

In the SL Podcast’s latest episode of The Carwash with Teko Modise and Sean Roberts, the crew debate Hunt’s options in Chiefs’ goalkeeping department. Former Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns keeper Roberts argues that Khune should be given another shot, while former Down’s midfielder Modise makes the case that Khune should be dropped, as outfield players do not receive the same leniency as goalies for there errors. In the full show, Modise and Roberts also debate what Amazulu coach Benni McCarthy’s targets for the season should be.

"Benni Can Bring Excitement To Amazulu"

Amazulu have made their ambitions for the season crystal clear, having signed an array of talented players to try and make Usuthu a competitive team after years of struggling in the lower half of the Premiership table. Their list of signings includes Siphiwe Tshabalala, Xola Mlambo, Augustine Mulenga, Luvuyo Memela, and more, with new owner Sandile Zungu splashing the cash to revamp the squad. Despite this, Amazulu sit in 11th with only one win in six DStv Premiership matches. In response to the slow start, Amazulu have parted ways with coach Ayanda Dlamini and are now being linked with a list of coaches. Former Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy seems to be the most popular choice, and former Bafana Bafana star Teko Modise agrees, stating “Benni can bring excitement to Amazulu”

In the SL Podcast’s latest episode of The Carwash Modise added, “I think everybody wants to see [Benni] back in the PSL. He makes the league interesting. People still love [him].” In the full show, Modise and former Sundowns goalie Sean Roberts debate the other candidates for the Usuthu job, which include Eric Tinkler, Owen Da Gama & Shaun Bartlett who have all recently left their previous clubs. The Carwash crew also discuss the latest PSL results and preview the MTN8 final.

“Shalulile hasn’t even reached his peak yet”

Mamelodi Sundowns made no secret of their intentions when they conducted their transfer business, signing 13 new players as they hope to push for honours in four competitions this season. One of their signings, Peter Shalulile (formerly of Highlands Park) has already made a strong start to life in Chloorkop, forming a deadly front three with fellow new signee Kermit Erasmus and reigning PSL Player of the Season Themba Zwane. Former Sundowns star Teko Modise argues that while Shalulile has started excellently, he still hasn’t reached his peak, despite his strong start with three goals and two assists.

In the SL Podcast’s latest episode of The Carwash Modise points out that Shalulile has often found himself on the defensive end of the pitch due to his high work-rate, stating “I don’t think that Shalulile has actually reached his peak that he [hit] at Highlands Park. The kind of work that he’s putting in is very impressive, his defending duties, his chasing down, he’s selfless on the Sundowns team. Imagine when he starts [only] focusing on his strength. I think that’s a team that will grow and be even more dangerous in terms of the scoreline.”

In the full podcast, Modise and former Sundowns goalie Sean Roberts provide a wrap of the PSL transfer window, preview the weekend’s league action and break down the situation at TTM, which reportedly saw players abandon training due to unpaid salaries.

Build Pitso a statue!

Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has the opportunity to make history when Al Alhy takes on Zamalek on Friday. After his incredible year has already included an Absa Premiership league title, along with a NedbankCup trophy and a Telkom Knockout trophy. If his side wins the CAF Champions League this Friday, he’ll become only the third coach in the tournament's history to win the title with 2 different teams (after Oscar Fulloné & Mahmoud El-Gohary). He'd also be the first to do it in this century.

In the SL Podcast’s latest episode of The Carwash Modise and former Sundowns & Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts debate where Kaizer Chiefs could end up finishing on the DStv Premiership table. The team gave Mosimane a wish of good luck ahead of his side’s Friday match up with Zamalek. For the full podcast, click the link above.
