My Dream Team: Alex Bapela

My Dream Team

Mamelodi Sundowns and Real Rovers legend Alex Bapela has selected a brilliant and attacking Dream Team to feast your eyes upon.

Bapela was part of Masandawana's golden generation in the late 1990s that won loads of league titles and played 'shoeshine and piano'. His name will always be associated with The Brazilians.

Contrary to the popular belief that 'Barnes' gained his big calf muscles from training very hard, which was even mentioned by Lovers Mohlala, he insists it is just genetics.

"It's something I was born with. Even my sisters are like that, we inherited it from my mom," he tells

Now the soon-to-be Sekhukhune United technical director selects the best eleven of players he played with or against during his exemplary career, with some having played alongside him at Rovers.

Check out Bapela's team made up of players affiliated to Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates in the pictures above!
