Booth: Why this Pirates Team Reminds Me Of My Sundowns Team

Why does Matthew Booth compare the current Pirates team to a Sundowns team he played for? Find out by clicking on the podcast player below!

When it comes to financial strength, no team is as strong as Mamelodi Sundowns, especially after they splashed out over R15M on Teboho Mokoena. Does this pose the question, are Mamelodi Sundowns inflating the market? The irony? Whenever Kaizer Chiefs approach clubs to sign players, those players’ price tag gets put up astronomically, which then disadvantages the player, and also brings a sense of unfairness to Chiefs. All of this relates to the recent transfer window! Speaking on the 100th episode of the Carwash, special guest and former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana defender Matthew Booth compares this current Orlando Pirates team with the Downs team he played for during his second stint at Naturena. The White Knight explains that during his time there, 14 players were signed and this can cause the players to feel a major sense of ‘uncomfortability.’

On the 100th episode of the Carwash, former Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns goalie Sean Roberts is joined by former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana defender Matthew Booth to discuss the recent transfer window which saw some surprising decisions being made. The former teammates also discuss the issues between Baxter and Chiefs, which came to light during the same transfer window. Later in the show, Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield joins the show to chat about the recent AFCON Final which saw Sadio Mane’s Senegal emerge victorious!
