For the love of the game,check out the big teams of mzansi (Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates) up against each other on Saturday,17 March 2012 at FNB Stadium-15h30.It's all about pride and making their supporters happy,whether is going to be a draw,win for The Sea Robbers or The Glamour Boys.
It has been ups and downs in both camps recently
Bucs camp:the conflicts in bucs camp led to the suspension of Brazilian mentor Julio Leal and to be replaced by the development coach Augusto Palacios.Leal's job did not work out as he was expected after taking over the Dutch man Ruud Krol,but managed to win them two major trophies.Now is up to caretaker coach Palacios to work his divided dressing room.
Chiefs camp:it has been talks from chiefs camp since the removal of Jimmy Tau as team captain to be replaced by mzansi's finest Itumeleng Khune.Senior players are really not happy with the way things are and how the Serbian(Vladimir Vermezovic) is handling the team.The conflicts in the Glamour Boys dressing room led the Serbian to rely more on the younger stars and sees some of the senior players sitting in the side line.
Going to the game from their last match actions
Amakhosi last played a professional match at the beginning of the month,with the Glamour Boys seeing off the Cape Town All Stars to book their place in the Nedbank Cup last 16.Due to the postponed of the Nedbank Cup game between Ajax Cape Town and Amazulu saw Chiefs not playing midweek as they were supposed to play against Ajax Cape Town in the league game.
Chiefs are set to return in action against Soweto rivals Pirates, who played against eThekwini Coastal in the last-32 on Saturday and played the Cape side Santos at Athlone stadium on Wednesday.
Orlando Pirates will be looking to fix their mistakes committed against Santos on Wednesday if they are to have a chance winning Saturday's derby against the Kaizer Chiefs.
Watch out......who want to rule Soweto?
