SASoccer365 readers' letters on the signings made by Sundowns, as well as the number of foreign-born players playing in the PSL.
'Chiefs have nothing to prove'
I do not know where this hostility towards Chiefs is coming - the Ndlovu saga is not between Chiefs and Sundowns. Ndlovu snubbed Chiefs for Sundowns and he gave his reasons. period.
The league title is not a two horse race between the two teams. Chiefs have nothing to prove. they had not won the league in 11 years before lifting it this season, but every other season they have been winning trophies.
With the likes of the "cheap" Musasa some people are talking about.Sundowns on the other hand have not been doing well. they last won the league back to back and that was it.
They are the ones with something to prove. So let us all wait and see if The multi million Brazillians can start making their supporters happy and keep petty jealousness out of the beautiful game.
As for Ndlovu, I wish him luck, and Brian has nothing to prove to Chiefs, he made his choice and as he said he wanted "new challenges" and to play for "bigger teams". I don't think he meant proving anything to Amakhosi
'Lets not fear competition'
I would like to commend Motsepe for job well done by bringing internationals to PSL. I think our PSL has to be very competitive and players have to work extra hard for a place in the first team.
I know some are against his move but definitely this would bear results for South African soccer and more over we have secured the world cup bid 2010.
I think by then we would be able to come up with a solid world cup squad due to the CompetitiCom we have at team level.I'm not of the idea that only South Africans should be featured at our PSL for development purposes coz I doubt any competitiveness on that aspect.
We need to mix up with people who have exposure on international level and if you note 98% of Bafana Bafana players are based abroad.I think this speaks volumes on its own.
Please lets not fear competition and the limit set by PSL on foreign players per team is fine.
SA soccer followers should learn from other countries
SA soccer followers should learn from other countries, how many times have players over 30 performed brilliant than the so-called youngsters, how old is Luis Figo, Zidane,and our very own John Mosheou.
How could you people question the abilities of Peter Ndlovu,the guy has shown that he is one of the best players in the entire continent. Peter is capable of delivering the goods whether in England or SA. The way Mamelodi Sundowns spends their millions should not concern you (especially you jealous Chiefs fans).
It is rather foolish for other teams to take Motsepe's actions as a threat be cause,what he is trying is to improve the standard of SA soccer,so that other tycoons can follow suit.
Players deserve the kind of money they are getting,I mean they bust their guts trying to play good football for us to enjoy then they retire with nothing and Motsepe is trying to avoid that humiliation.
In his first friendly game against Silver Stars, Ndlovu scored what is described as a"brilliant" goal so, lets not judge the man with his salary but his worthiness on the field. And for the record,Chiefs fans mind your own businesses and let us Sundowns supporters concern ourselves about the decision taken by our management, don't be bad losers.
REMEMBER, EVERYTHING HAS A LIMIT
I would like to advise or to tell Sundowns staff that money can buy players and do everything u like but,u will never afford to win all games and cups.
AND stop to buy the players which are old enough. Look AT PIRATES AND CHIEFS they have development where they can go and take players. AND hear Mr PATRICE MOTSEPE coming to buy players from both teams.REMEMBER EVERYTHING HAS A LIMIT
IT BREAKS MY HEART LOOKING At TED FIYERING PLAYERS LIKE JABULANI MENDU, FABIAN AND PUTTING TALENTED PLAYER LIKE RENE
RICHARDS AND GERALD SIBEKO ON THE BENCH, SAYING THEY ARE NOT FIT. FRENDLY REMANDER : CHIEFS IS BIG TEAM AND IS FOR THE PEOPLE.
