Orlando Pirates vs Mamelodi Sundowns: Five flashy star

Player for either one of these sides certainly qualifies you as a high-profile baller. 

Most high-profile ballers maintain a certain image and lifestyle that allows them to indulge in the priciest drip, cars and to maintain a certain lifestyle.

Bongani Zungu, who returned to Masandawana this season after a fruitful stint in Europe, is a great example of a glitzy athlete. 

From dating an internationally-recognised actress to wearing brands such as Louis Vuitton and Dior, the marauding midfielder has it all! 

Zungu also owns a luxury set of rides that include a BMW M4, Range Rover and Mercedez Benz. 

Another Merc lover is Orlando Pirates' Nigerian defender, Olisa Ndah.

The youngster is one of the best dressed stars in the Buccaneers dressing room, rocking brands such Palm Angels, Burberry, Givenchy and Amiri. 

When it comes to luxury-focused style, Thembinkosi Lorch can never be left out of the conversation. 

The 29-year-old almost exclusively rocks high-end garments. He's been seen wearing brands such as; Kenzo, Burberry, Moschino and of course, Gucci. 

Lorch hasn't been as open with the cars that he drives but he's been spotted with a Jeep Cherokee in the past. A ride perfectly built for comfort and performance. 

Lorch's teammate Thabang Monare is also known for his extravagance. The midfielder has a taste for pricey fashion brands like Diesel, Burberry and Gucci. 

On the road, he switches between a speedy BMW and a sizzling Audi. He's also been spotted stepping out of a dazzling Lambo ride: 

Sundowns' trusted utility forward, Surprise Ralani, may be short of action on the pitch, but like Zungu he makes sure that he indulges in the soft life off the field of play. 

With a bright yellow Mercedes Benz weapon and a diminutive Beamer, the 35-year-old also styles in highly sough-after brands like Gucci and G-Star.
