Kaizer Chiefs will have a very strong touch of Mosimane’s legacy this weekend.
When they take on Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday, 8 May, Amakhosi could field ‘CBD‘ – Castro, Billiat and Dolly. The three men who made a name for themselves playing under Mosimane at Sundowns could now represent Chiefs against The Brazilians.
Chiefs are in a MUST-WIN situation, they have to beat Sundowns to keep their hopes of qualifying for the CAF Champions League alive. This is the very tournament Mosimane won with Sundowns and is on route to secure for the third time in succession with Al Ahly.
They will need every bit of Mosimanes LEGACY if they are to beat Downs. Not even Jingles could achieve that this year, after losing both clashes against Masandawana. His inspiration has spread to the other side of the Soweto where it meets up with Orlando Pirates…
Pirates will play Al Ahli Tripoli in the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final on Sunday, 8 May.
They are representing the whole of South Africa, something Mosimane is very accustomed to. Except this time, Pirates have extra inspiration to win SA’s only continental trophy this season in order to set up a dream clash with Mosimane’s Al Ahly!
If the Bucs manage to win the CAFCC and Al Ahly successfully defend their CAFCL trophy, then we will have Al Ahly vs Orlando Pirates in the Super Cup.
Fingers crossed that Mosimane’s magic will inspire Chiefs and Pirates!
