Mamelodi Sundowns wrapped up their fifth DStv Premiership title in a row this season as they continue to assert their dominance over the South African football scene.

Masandawana’s dominance has had many sharing their thoughts on whether Sundowns could be stopped and now Bafana legend Doctor Khumalo has shared his thoughts on the matter.

As reported by Soccer Laduma, Khumalo alluded that the end of Sundowns’ title-winning streak would be good for football.

“Other teams have to catch up to them now and that can only be a good thing for South African football. The other teams have to take on this challenge, otherwise, our league will be one-way traffic.”

Khumalo clarified that he had nothing against Sundowns and didn’t mean that he didn’t want them to win the league again.

Khumalo has been quite vocal of late when it came to the state of South African football. He recently asked why legends like Lucas Radebe, who did so much for the country, were not respected by SAFA, Sowetan LIVE reported.

He also questioned the Bafana squad under Hugo Broos and why experienced performers like Andile Jali were not given a chance, Times LIVE reported.

Doctor Khumalo slams Hugo Broos for exclusion of in form Mamelodi Sundowns players from Bafana Bafana

If it wasn't aiming fire in the South African Football Association's direction for excluding capable individuals from its leadership circles, Doctor Khumalo was singling out a particular employee for criticism.

Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos earned the ire of the legend for what he feels is a muddled selection policy and unfair selection policy. This comes as many in the local football fraternity clamour for in-form Mamelodi Sundowns players at the centre of the team's dominance of South African football.

During the last international break, the exclusion of Themba Zwane and Andile Jali was a controversial matter, with some backing their exclusion, while others were perplexed by it, Sports Brief reported.
