Chiefs v Sundowns Review
On Saturday night, Mamelodi Sundowns opening the gap between them and Kaizer Chiefs to 22 points, after beating the Soweto giants 1-0 in a tense game that could have gone either way. But how was this titanic clash won and lost? Is there merit to coach Arthur Zwane’s post-match assertion that his side could have scored five goals on another day? Was starting Samkelo Zwane a mistake? Why was coach Rulani Mokwena looking all disappointed despite such a record-breaking victory? This Soccer Laduma big-game review looks at how the match played out.
Tebza Interviews Lekgwathi!
Lucky Lekgwathi remains one of the most recognizable football legends in the local game. The Ga-Rankuwa-born former defender, who retired six years ago, remains relevant among the supporters because of the role he played in guiding Orlando Pirates to a historic double treble, among other achievements. In an interesting conversation about all things PSL, the man nicknamed Phinda Mzala Lekgwathi sat down with his former coach Tebogo Moloi, and he holds nothing back in his assessment.
Tebogo Langerman Interview
A lot has been said recently about Mamelodi Sundowns’ dominance, but it’s mostly been centered around the money they have to spend on any player they want. DStv Premiership coaches, including Sekhukhune United’s Brandon Truter, have gone as far as suggesting Financial Fair Play, while a few some ex-players have questioned the big squad at Downs’ disposal, with some hugely talented players not featuring. However, former Sundowns player Tebogo Langerman totally disagrees. Find out why in his interview with Soccer Laduma this week!

Katlego Ntsabeleng Interview
Now with FC Dallas, Ntsabeleng’s journey wasn’t all smooth-sailing. He had to overcome a number of challenges, one of which was his small stature. But what he lacked in size, he made up for in skill, guile and determination. The lad nicknamed ‘Tsiki’ is fast making a name for himself in the States and is just a few weeks away from his second season in the league, one which promises to be even better. Soccer Laduma caught up with the former Kaizer Chiefs Diski Challenge side player as he talks about life in the USA, Bongokuhle Hlongwane, and more.
Cristiano Ronaldo Feature
Following an unceremonious end to a difficult second spell at Manchester United, fans around the world were taken aback by CR7’s decision to trade Europe for the Middle East, particularly after he made it clear that he wanted to get back to playing UEFA Champions League football. His salary in Saudi Arabia makes him the world’s highest-paid player in history, but was there a cost to the actions that led to his departure from the Red Devils? Has he done his reputation harm? This week, Soccer Laduma analyses the events leading up to Ronaldo’s free-agent switch to Al Nassr.
This week, we hear from Stellenbosch FC head coach Steve Barker as he reacts to his team’s dip in form, including the latest result, a 4-1 hammering by Orlando Pirates, while keeping faith that the tide will turn. He says the Ikapa Derby against Cape Town City on Friday is a ‘must-win’ game.
