Opinion: Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates the once upon a time success story in South Africa

Gone are the days when South African football was ruled by Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates as they have failed to be on the level of Mamelodi Sundowns who have been dominating with trophies in the last 7 years, both Soweto giants have not tasted league victory in over 5 years and perhaps they have forgotten how it feels to lift up a league trophy.


There is not much happening for the Soweto giants these days as they just can't seem to replicate their success as they did in the past, success has been eluding the Soweto giants who once was at the center of attention in South African football, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates have been in the shadow of Mamelodi Sundowns for over 5 years now, their success has become a once upon a time story in the football realms of South Africa.

Kaizer Chiefs haven't lifted a single trophy in over 5 years and they look like a team who won't be winning any silverware this season, amakhosi have been struggling to win games and have played very poor football in the last 2 years, Kaizer Chiefs have been finding it hard to win games as they just can't seem to win consistently.


Orlando Pirates on the other hand have tasted success as they lifted last years MTN8 trophy under Joseph Zinnbauer only to be defeated in the quarterfinals of this year's MTN8 tournament by Capetown city, the Buccaneers themselves have been struggling to be consistent this season and have been struggling to score goals.

The once dominant Soweto giants have become average teams and very hard to predict when they play as you never know what you going to get from them, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are the once upon a time giants of South African football and it does not matter how you look at it, Mamelodi Sundowns are the giants of South African football now and you first have talk about them when you talking about silverware, do drop a comment on what you think of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates form in the last 3 years.
