No matter who you are on this planet, there is always someone who you look up to and admire.

Mokwena shared a photo of him and Okocha on his own Twitter account, saying:

"Jay-Jay Okocha! What a humble legend. We met as football enthusiasts to become football brothers. Grateful to @SuperSportTV for the opportunity to make friends with such incredible human beings."

@WedsonNyirenda said:

"@coach_rulani Jay Jay is just like that. That is why they reached those heights in football. Humility. And respect for other people. I have had some chats with him and you feel you are really sharing something with a gentleman."

@mega_DgitalCred said:

"JJ knows football and you Mr Mokwena spot on analysis last night. All the best brother… the future of South African football is promising."

@kappilinho said:

"A job very well done by yourself coach as well as the legend. Thoroughly enjoyed the analysis, expertise and vibe!"

"So good they named him twice."

Mamelodi Sundowns continues ruthless march towards title with easy win over Chippa United

Goals from Andile Jali and Teboho Mokoena were more than enough to see Mamelodi Sundowns defeat Chippa United 2-0 at Loftus Versfeld in the DStv Premiership.

As reported on Sports Brief, the victory saw Sundowns open the gap at the top of the table between them and Orlando Pirates to a mammoth 17 points with 10 matches to go for the log leaders.

Mathematically, the Brazilians are now 16 points from winning the league title if the Buccaneers were to inconceivably win their remaining 11 matches on the trot.
