South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns are just four games away from breaking an old, proud Kaizer Chiefs PSL record.
SUNDOWNS CLOSE TO ECLIPSING AN OLD KAIZER CHIEFS RECORD
Sundowns are just a trio of unbeaten top-flight matches away from another slice of history. They’re currently unbeaten in 29 PSL matches after their 1-0 win away to Richards Bay on Wednesday. If the Brazilians can avoid defeat in upcoming DStv Premiership clashes against Polokwane City, Orlando Pirates and Stellenbosch, they’ll beat that Kaizer Chiefs record set all the way back in 2005.
BILLIAT’S AMAKHOSI STINT ENDS IN DISAPPOINTMENT
Speaking of Sundowns and Chiefs, 33-year-old Khama Billiat has been a player of undoubted pedigree, but he’s leaving South Africa agonizingly short of an amazing personal record. The Zimbabwean has notched 97 goals in the PSL era, so he won’t be joining the esteemed 100 club. Only seven players belong to that elite class, namely Siyabonga Nomvete, Daniel Mudau, Mabhuti Khanyeza, Tico-Tico Bucuane, Collins Mbesuma, Bradley Grobler and Peter Shalulile.
