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.
It came as no surprise to see them sign these players for a combined R32 million as they have also spent some serious amount of money in the previous windows, to bring players like Romeo Erasmus, Peter Shalulile, Aubrey Modiba, and others to the club.
Modiba who is a product of the Nedbank Cup Ke Yona team joined Masandawana from their town rival, Supersport United back in 2020 after spending four years each at his two previous clubs, now-defunct Mpumalanga Black Aces Football Club(2012 to 2016) and Supersport United(2016 to 2020) and has since went on to form part of the club's first team.
In his last season at Supersport, he played alongside the South African U23 international, Luke Fleurs who was playing his first season at the club.
The 21-year-old who is close to Sundowns star was at Modiba's case again, as he asked Modiba whether he is an Uber rider, as one of the drivers of Uber looked like him.
For me, this is how it should be between soccer players in this country, they should be rivals on the field not on it as well.
A concept Modiba understands well, as he is a friend to many football players in the country and most of them are from rival clubs.
