Sebola ranks Big 3 strikeforce


Former Orlando Pirates striker Andries Sebola has ranked which strike-force is best of the big three of Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs have so far not added any strikers to their squads. With defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns the only team to strengthen, with the signings of Thabiso Kutumela and Slovakian Pavol Safranko.

Besides the two new additions, Sundowns boast Gift Motupa, Domingo, Mauriccio Affonso, Kermit Erasmus, Lesedi Kapinga and danger-man Peter Shalulile as strikers in their current squad.

Sebola gives his insight on the attacking threat of the defending champions.

"If you realise how many games are Sundowns are going to play, I think it's good for them to chop and change," Sebola tells KickOff.

"Players like Affonso never got a chance last season due to injuries. Especially in the Champions League, this is where they will come to the party. Locally Shalulile and Motupa will dominate. But, Kutumela will need to work hard to convince the technical team.

"Safranko, yes, we heard about him, but we've never seen him play. Let's hope he can deliver and adjust to local football. And adjust to the system that Sundowns are playing."

Sebola ranks Sundowns as perhaps the team who look most dangerous going forward.

"They've got all the firepower to help them achieve whatever they keep achieving each and every season.

"I will give them an 8 out of 10. What their strikers may lack is distribution from the midfield.

"Will the likes of Andile Jali and those other guys that are playing in midfield like George Maluleka supply those strikers to score goals? That's the question I'm asking myself."
