Chabalala, a former star with the Orlando Pirates, is unimpressed with the Buccaneers.
Tonic Chabalala, a former Orlando Pirates player (Collins Mbesuma knows him well), believes the Buccaneers have failed miserably this season. Mamelodi Sundowns, he says, is the club to aim for.
The Soweto Buccaneers are currently fourth in the PSL standings, with a CAFCC quarter-final on the horizon.
Following a coaching change and the addition of several new players to the starting lineup, the entire package has been provided. Is this a good effort? Tonic Chabalala, on the other hand, is skeptical.
“To be honest, I don’t see us (Pirates) going anywhere and I see these remaining matches of the season that we are playing in the league as friendlies,” the former central defender said via Soccer Laduma .
“I thought the team would fight to get something in the Nedbank Cup, but we lost against Marumo Gallants.
“Pirates has looked like any ordinary team in recent times, and I think that is because of chopping and changing in team selections.
“It will always be very difficult for any team to get results when the line-ups are changed all the time and there will be no consistency,” said Chabalala.
The former footballer, who was born in Giyani, ended his remarks by praising Sundowns, the unstoppable PSL champions.
Kabo Yellow is simply the model club in this country, if not the continent, according to Chabalala.
“With Sundowns, you can see that the team is going somewhere, and they know what they are doing. That’s one team that is doing things the right way and they are a well-oiled machine.
“Sundowns coaches make changes to the line-ups only when it is necessary to do so, and they don’t chop and change. I don’t see Pirates winning the trophy in Africa. It’s so frustrating,” he concluded.
