Lekoelea: I saw it coming

Nedbank Cup

Orlando Pirates legend Steve Lekoelea says he knew before Thursday that his former club were going to get a thrashing by Mamelodi Sundowns.

On Thursday evening 'The Untouchables' continued their domination of South African football when they humiliated their rivals 4-1 in the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals.

"Yesterday's game I saw it before it even started playing, I saw a 3-1 hiding coming," 'Chippa' tells KickOff.com.

"I know Sundowns don't play the same football as the rest of the PSL clubs. They are playing their own style. They are controlling the game from the start till the end. They are playing like Spain, the one that had the likes of Iniesta.

"The more a team keeps the ball for a long time, it's the more they are killing the spirits of the opponent. At Sundowns they don't prepare for a single season, they prepare for five seasons.

"They are still going to beat teams for the next five years.

"They have too many players. They have a squad, they have coaches. After equalising Pirates should have pressed Sundowns very hard, and I don't know why the coach substituted [Tshegofatso] Mabasa."

Sundowns will play Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in the semi-finals this weekend, with the winner set to face either Pretoria Callies or Chippa United in the final.
