“Does being starless bother Chiefs?” – Reader’s Voice

“Does being starless bother Chiefs?” – Reader’s Voice

By Zax5-bucs - Mar 15, 2017 11:53 AM

Continental competitions are regarded as the biggest competitions all over the world. In Europe, Real Madrid brag about 11 European titles and are starving for more to open the gap and remain the most successful football team in Europe. And in Africa, Egyptian giants, Al Ahly dominate the CAF Champions League with eight titles under their name.

Here in South Africa, we only have two titles, won by Orlando Pirates and current champions Mamelodi Sundowns. The Buccaneers won the biggest club trophy on the continent in 1995. 21 years later, Sundowns brought in another continental trophy, after Bucs failed twice in their journey to bring another continental cup in South Africa after losing the finals to Al Ahly and to Étoile du Sahel.

Sundowns’ and Pirates’ success should make Kaizer Chiefs jealous and motivate them to go all out and win their own continental trophy, so that they can print a star on top of their famous badge, but that’s not the case. The Naturena-based side don’t look worried about continental success and being starless doesn't bother them, in terms of fans, players or management. The Khosination only enjoy the attention they get from the media.

Is the media fooling Chiefs by making them think they are big without winning CAF tournaments? Are Bucs and Downs smaller with their star compare to the starless Chiefs?

Another star is loading for Sundowns and Bidvest Wits. While at Chiefs they r enjoying media attention. No wonder they will remain poor in seated of focusing on what brings money to the team they think of beating Sundowns and Pirates on who should be on the front page of Soccer Laduma,arrrg man wake up Chiefs Sundowns is making money real money. A big team that find it haaaard to sign a R1m player????? Chiefs must stop abusing the word BIG. This must be used ONLY for the BIG teams.

Every competition you participate in you fight for the highest honor/achievement of it. at School highest honor is Phd, at work is a Director position, in football is Club World Cup. Chiefs just like someone who is over age at Grade 12 who oi famous of being a failure obviously the whole media/country will focus on you for all the wrong reasons. To Sundowns and Pirates whether Media gives you attention or not you have achieved the highest recognizable/most wanted achievement football has to offer. Let Chiefs enjoy the Media attention. @Zax5-bucs 100% right someone who makes things easier for Chiefs in SA cant do the same in Africa.

To be a man, beat the man; stop whispering in the deep and show the world what you claim you're. If you claim to be giant, go out there and conquer fellow giants instead of scaring-off toddlers. Stop bragging about your giant-being to children and go face other giants. We're tired of this plastic giant

@alizeboss124 maybe someone who make things easier for Chiefs locally, can't do the same continentaly thats why when Sviwe Chippa Mpengesi say ''i want to win the league in my first season in the PSL and go bring ACL home'' Kaizer Motaung talk about black label and Macufe he know he need morethan players to be successful.

Obviously Small Teams Wont Dream about Winning the Champions League Because they Know it is impossible to do So..ASK Baroka or Chippa and also Zebras if they Dream of Winning CAF ND Wait for their answer.

@alizeboss124 are you trying to say their local dominance/success was forged? Mmmmhm, mate i'm not saying anything about your statement but what i know all the big teams around the world gun for Champs league and thats the only way to gain respect. So without Continental belt you are a rim-less wheel. That mean useless. But with big support base i would also take advantage like media do and fool Chiefs for income.

It's only for Zebras that winning champion League means nothing. All around the world, this success is the best of them all, it's dream achievement for any team except Zebras because they are animals and don't care what humans care about
