Downs vs Chiefs: Someone Is Going To Cry

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) title race is reaching it’s boiling point, with log-leaders Kaizer Chiefs taking on defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns in a potential title decider. Chiefs are three points clear of Downs ahead of the fixture and could extend their lead with a victory, while Masandawana have the chance to draw level with the Soweto giants if they win the fixture.

Speaking to SL Radio on The Carwash podcast, former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise argued “For Kaizer Chiefs, with their star playing Nurkovic being out, I think that’s a huge blow. With Mamelodi Sundowns, if they don’t win this game with all the problems that Kaizer Chiefs have, Lebo (Manyama) having to go for late fitness tests, Khama (Billiat) not being himself, for [Downs] it’ll be either you win this game or nothing at all”.

Modise later adds, “Someone is going to cry, someone is crying on Thursday”

Nobody Wants To Win The PSL

Title hopefuls Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns have struggled for form since entering the Premier Soccer League (PSL) bubble, with log leaders Amakhosi only managing four points from a possible nine since football’s resumption, and Masandawana earning just two points from nine much to the disappointment of their supporters. It is Chief’s latest loss to Bloem Celtic which has raised concern, as the Soweto giants had the opportunity to go nine points clear heading into the weekend’s PSL fixtures.

Speaking on SL Radio’s The Carwash podcast, former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise argued “We, as fans of football, are saying Mamelodi Sundowns are not playing well, [they’re] not playing the same way they did before lockdown, [but] imagine if they were playing the same way, it would be a different story now. Kaizer Chiefs should be taking advantage of Mamelodi Sundowns not playing to the best of their ability.”

Former Ajax Cape Town Goalie Sean Roberts added, “There’s no crowds, I know probably Sundowns and Chiefs rely on crowds as a 12th man on the field, do you know what I mean? I believe at the end of the season, and this might sound obvious [but] the team who makes the least mistakes is gonna win the league.”

Why Downs Could Lose To Highlands Park...

Mamelodi Sundowns have had a tough time since the return of local football, having already beaten Bidvest Wits in a five-goal thriller in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals and having earned a point in a hard-fought fixture against Orlando Pirates in the Premier Soccer League (PSL). Next, they’ll take on Owen Da Gama’s Highlands Park in a match that many would expect them to win as they continue to hunt Kaizer Chiefs in the title race.

Former Sundowns star Teko Modise has taken a different view of the match, stating that the ‘Lions of the North’ could edge the reigning champions and cause an upset. Speaking to SL Radio, Modise stated “It’s gonna be tough one, I think Owen Da Gama has an opportunity to beat Sundowns because he watched two games that Mamelodi Sundowns has played [since restart]. So he’s got an advantage to analyse them and see their weaknesses and punish.”

“What I like about Highlands is they’ve got speed, they’ve got the hunger, they’ve got the desire. Watch out on Friday, I see Sundowns losing against Highlands Park.”

Will Middendorp Show Faith in Baccus?

Kaizer Chiefs’ coach Ernst Middendorp will have a tough task on his hands when it comes to selecting his starting midfielders, particularly since George Maluleka has left Amakhosi for Mamelodi Sundowns. ‘Mido’ signed a pre-contract with Masandawana in March, days before Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairman Irvin Khoza confirmed the suspension of football. In late June, Kaizer Chiefs announced that they would not be extended the 31-Year-Old midfielder’s contract for the remainder of the season. ‘Mido’ was a mainstay in Chiefs central midfield, meaning his departure raises questions as to whether Middendorp will deploy Kearyn Baccus to fill the void.

Speaking on SL Radio’s The Carwash podcast, PSL legend Teko Modise argued: “I think it would suicidal for the coach not [to] use Baccus because of the qualities that he has. Plus, he’s been playing [regularly] so to bring back Nthangase would be so much pressure for the boy to perform, and these are the games where you need people who are ready to perform and do it for the team.”

Former Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Sean Roberts added, “I believe he’s going to be the replacement, to be honest. He’s able to go forward, he does very well defensively, he’s impressed me massively in the games that he’s played. The key is to have Katsande there, and whoever’s gonna play next to him and I do believe it will be Baccus.”

Would Chiefs Give Maluleka a PSL Winner's Medal?

Before George Maluleka officially joined Mamelodi Sundowns in June, he had played a vital role in Kaizer Chiefs’ midfield and featured prominently in their Absa Premiership title chase. Despite this, Amakhosi opted out of extending his contract for the remainder of the season after football was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak in March. Former Sundowns star Teko Modise and former Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Sean Roberts. raise the question on The Carwash Podcast; Would Kaizer Chiefs award ‘Mido’ a PSL Winners’ medal, should they secure the championship?

Modise stated, “The question that I also wanna ask is, if Kaizer Chiefs happens to win the league, what are they gonna do? Are they gonna give George Maluleka his medal or what are they gonna say? For me it’s very disturbing to that happening because he played almost every game, he qualifies to win the league. But knowing how teams operate in South Africa… It’ll be very interesting to see in the end what’s gonna happen.”

Brian Baloyi: Chiefs Won’t Be Happy To Hear Me Say This...

Compared to last season, Kaizer Chiefs have improved drastically from a side that finished outside of the top eight in ninth position during the 2018/19 campaign to leading the Premier Soccer League (PSL) standings and challenging for the title this season. Despite this success, Amakhosi and their coach Ernst Middendorp had come under criticism before the suspension of football, for their lack of creativity and poor form against teams who are lower in the table. Kaizer Chiefs legend Brian Baloyi did not mince words when providing his analysis to SL Radio.

Baloyi stated. “I think the coach plays according to the strength of his team, and looking at his style of play [and] what he has at his disposal, the way they’ve been playing, it’s been just - and I’m sorry to say this, and I know [Chiefs] haven’t been happy with me saying this - but they’ve been one-dimensional. That’s the biggest challenge, that’s the biggest problem. If you close down the flanks so that they can’t cross the balls, there’s not much. [If] they can’t score from set-pieces, if you look at their goals from open play, it’s just a handful.”

Igesund on Coaching Pirates & Sundowns

Few coaches in the league have a resume like former Orlando Pirates & Mamelodi Sundowns mentor Gordon Igesund. His experience is particularly unique as he remains the only coach to win the PSL four times, with four different teams, having done so with Manning Rangers, Santos, Pirates & Sundowns. Joining the Carwash podcast as a guest host, Igesund discussed the difficulties of coaching a Big Three team, stating “Fantastic, fantastic [experience] to coach those teams, but a lot of pressure”.

He continues “It’s because the expectations are so high. At Sundowns, you can go buy any player you want to buy, and go win a championship, you’re not short of anything. At Pirates it’s the same thing, the supporters only want success and it’s very difficult and I think it’s more important to know there, that you’ve got to man-manage the players a lot more than coaching. And the biggest job managing those teams is managing the players who aren’t playing”.

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].”
