"I'm no Orlando Pirates supporter, but this is nice. We can't be looking at concrete walls in a stadium for of a top-flight team "

Good job inside, but still more could be done on the outside. Those grey walls outside do little to remind opponents they now entering esGodini sikamaminzela. Just the view of the stadium should send shivers to opponents."

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi laughs off Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates' league title hopes

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi might have poked the bear. The Brazilians' co-coach said that Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates don't pose his team a title threat.

As reported by Sports Brief, the Tshwane side has won the league five seasons in a row. The Amakhosi last won the league - or any form of silverware - back in 2015.

The wait for the Buccaneers has been much longer, having won the league - along with a second consecutive Treble - 10 years ago in 2012.
