Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs have been fairly active during the current transfer window, while Mamelodi Sundowns have been rather silent. One supporter pointed out that the transfer window will not last forever and that these three giants in South African football should be on the lookout for experienced campaigners to add to their teams.
The South African national team won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1996, roughly four years after the country's readmission to the sporting world by FIFA in 1992. That was quite the achievement if one takes all that into consideration
The Soweto giants have both officially unveiled their new kits ahead of the 2017/18 campaign. On Thursday last week, Kaizer Chiefs revealed their Nike-sponsored kit with an out-of-this-world video on their social media pages to introduce their faithful to the team’s official attire for the season, while crosstown rivals Orlando Pirates revealed their new adidas kits on Monday.
Kaizer Chiefs began their pre-season on a high last weekend, when they won a four-team one-day tournament, the Bokone Bophirima Maize Cup. One noticeable absentee in both of Chiefs' games was Siphiwe Tshabalala.
