They may be rivals on the field of play but off it, they are friends and brothers. That it is a story of many South African football players who play for rival clubs, like Kaizer Chiefs Football Club, Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club, and Orlando Pirates Football Club, as they are forced to put their relations on the side whenever their teams meet.
