The PSL is one of the best in the leagues in terms of monetary value for the players and all stakeholders involved.

The football season in South Africa finished a month prior and clubs like Orlando Pirates Football Club and Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club close by their players are as yet partaking in their days off, in front of an interesting pre-season that will prompt the 2022/2023 season. Dusks players are the most meriting an occasion given the quantity of matches they played this season, as a large portion of their top stars like Tebogo Mokoena and Bradley Ralani who joined the club halfway through the season last season played all in all near 50 matches which shows how occupied their season was.
This is the longest reign of dominance in South African football history for Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club, who have won seven of the last ten league titles and are on their way to an unprecedented eighth title in 11 seasons, leading second-place Royal Andile Mpisane Football Club by 15 points with seven games remaining.
Mamelodi Sundowns has dominated the DStv Premiership over the last 5 years and this is something that has piled a lot of pressure on the opposition. They have continued to make a lot of quality of signings and have often been accused of weakening oppositions. This is one of the ways that they can continue to dominate, however it has come under a lot of scrutiny.
The dominance of Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club over South African football has been one of the longest dominance a club has had over a league in South Africa if not Africa, as the Brazilians have won seven of the last 10 league championships and are on their way to making it eight in 11 seasons, as they are currently leading second-place Royal Andile Mpisane Football Club with 15 points with seven games to go.

Going into the 2021/2022 season Kaizer Chiefs Football Club fans were happy and hopeful that their poor run when it comes to silverware, is a thing of the past.

There is no club currently in the Southern part of Africa that is close to Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club when it comes to success and style of play, as the Brazilians are enjoying their football at the moment both domestic and continental. The Chloorkop based club's success has been down to the players they have in their arsenal and their ability to sign quality players regularly, as we have seen recently with the signings of Bradley Surprise Ralani from Cape Town City Football Club, Tebogo Mokoena from Supersport United Football Club, Nassir Abubeker from Ethiopian Coffee Football Club, and Erwin Saavedra from Bolivar Football Club.
One of the things that Stuart Baxter was hired to do as Kaizer Chiefs Football Club head coach was to refresh an incapable and aging Chiefs squad that has lost its competitive edge, and without a waste of time, he decided to let 14 players exit the club while he brought in eight new players with Keagan Dolly the pick of them.
Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club has nothing to worry this season. With just one defeat in 31 games played across all competitions, they are currently enjoying their finest season ever. They signed Bradley Surprise Ralani from Cape Town City Football Club for free, Abubeker Nasir from Ethiopian Coffee Football Club for R6 million and loaned him back, and Erwin Saavedra and Tebogo Mokoena from their town rivals, Supersport United Football Club, for R12 million each.

These did not sit well with some of the legends of the game. They could be forced again to make another sacrifice when some foreign players who are currently on loan come back next season depending how impressive they are in their respective teams.

SuperSport United have parted ways with head coach Kaitano Tembo.Gavin Hunt can spin well with those players. good call for supersport to sack this plumber and I don't know what's stopping Chiefs for sacking this farmer called Baxter. But there was nothing he can do to save this under performing team, the management sold the players like Tebogo Mokoena and did not replace him while placing Mbule on suspension and Grobler being injured, Tembo had minimal resources in his disposal.
