Flashy Royal AM impressing on pitch


For all the barrage of criticism that PSL new kids on the block Royal AM have come under for their extravagance the line of results that they have recorded have left them as the form team in the league.

Their modus operandi has left them with a myriad of charges being pressed by the PSL disciplinary committee.

Matters relating to flashing stacks of cash on the field as they called out names of players to reward them straight after their derby win against Maritzburg United has attracted the ire of some and left them with a case to answer before the PSL DC.

They have also broken Covid-19 protocols along with a list of other charges that they have already pleaded guilty to following their first hearing.

However, for all the chaos and controversy that has defined their entrance in top-flight football, they have also been taking care of the most important business – collecting points.

John Maduka has masterminded Royal AM to full marks from their last four games, a feat that is only matched by champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

They have humiliated Kaizer Chiefs and taken all points against Chippa United, TS Galaxy and Maritzburg United scoring eleven goals through those four games which are one more goal than Sundowns have managed in the same period.

Victor Letsoalo has led with the goals scoring five in four games – he has scored in all four league games that he has played, which have fortunately been all wins for the club while Tshepo Rikhotso, Kabelo Mahlasela and Levy Mashiane have been amongst those who have featured prominently.

With those four wins on the trot, Royal AM has shot up to the comforts of a fourth-place and could be as high as second this evening with victory at crisis laden Marumo Gallants.

Still, without a win since the league started, Gallants appear vulnerable on the domestic scene but will be hoping the appointment of Raymond Mdaka changes their fortunes.

For Shauwn Mkhize's team, it all appears that the money is doing the talking for them now in their first season in the PSL after buying the status of Bloemfontein Celtic, renaming, and then relocating it to KwaZulu-Natal.

While how the bonuses are paid will remain a subject of debate fact of the matter is that money always provides the motivation for players to aim for consistent positive results.
