Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League side, FC Platinum have been crowned as new league champions this past weekend.

Platinum were crowned after beating Chapungu 2-0 away from home on Saturday at Ascot Stadium in Gweru.

ABSA PREMIERSHIP WEEKEND WRAP: PIRATES ONLY WINNERS, BAROKA CONTINUE TO LEAD

Coach Norman Mapeza’s men became the first side in the modern era of the league, outside of Harare and Bulawayo, to win the coveted title.

Mapeza has now lifted his second league title after he won with the now defunct Monomotapa in 2008 and said he was under pressure to bring glory to the club.

“We have been waiting for this day. We needed to get early goals. After getting them we needed to concentrate. It’s always difficult to take what people say, when you sign players,” Mapeza said to CAF.

“I was under pressure to bring glory to the club when I joined and today we did it.”

Mapeza now joins a league of achievers who have won two or more league titles along with Rahman Gumbo, Sunday Chidzambwa and Kalisto Pasuwa who won four in a row with Dynamos from 2011 to 2014.

The new champions will now represent the Southern African nation in next year’s Total CAF Champions League.

FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza says they want to win the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League and has warned their competitors.

Mapeza has issued a warning to his rivals that his charges will break the Harare-Bulawayo stranglehold and grab of this year’s Castle Lager Premier Soccer League big gong.

FC Platinum finished twice as runners-up to Dynamos in 2011 and to Caps United in 2016, but the respected gaffer wants to end the run of disappointments by claiming the big prize.

The equation is simple for his team – a perfect run in the last three matches will see them taking to the podium come the end of the season.

“We want to win and collect maximum points in all the remaining games but tomorrow is going to be a difficult game for us because Tsholotsho are tricky,” said Mapeza to the News Day.

“People say they have nothing to play for but they can equally upset any opponent at this stage.

“The most crucial thing for us is collecting all points no matter who we are playing. That’s the only way for us to write our own new piece of history.

“We need to be strong mentally and physically if we are to win this title. I believe this is our year, it’s a question of remaining strong and guarding against complacency.“

The Platinum miners are tied on 63 points together with Ngezi Platinum Stars who sit at the top due to a superior goal difference.

However, Mapeza’s side have a tough match against Ngezi which could decide the destiny of the championship.

Zimbabwean and ZPC Kariba coach Sunday Chidzambwa says the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League is difficult to predict.

The decorated manager said it will be difficult for Dynamos to win the race for the title and believes either FC Platinum or Ngezi Platinum will triumph.

However, Chidzambwa says there is still too much at stake and anything can happen as they prepare to face Platinum on Tuesday.

“It is not going to be an easy game. FC Platinum want to win the league and we also want to finish the season very strongly.

“We would love to finish in a respectable position and we are going to fight until the end of the season. We have prepared well for the game but you know football is football and anything can happen but we have prepared well.

“The two Platinum teams have a good chance to win it. They have a better chance of winning the title than anybody else.

“Any of the top four teams still have a chance of winning the title but FC Platinum and Ngezi Platinum have the best chance of winning the league.”

Meanwhile, FC Platinum boss Norman Mapeza adds they are moving in the right direction and says they just need to win their games.

“I think we are moving in the right direction. We just need to win our games. Ngezi is on top of us on better goal difference,” adds Mapeza.

“At this stage of the season we are not worried about goals, we just need to collect maximum points.”

Gavin Hunt’s job at PSL champions is not in jeopardy


Gavin Hunt, coach of Bidvest Wits

Wednesday Oct 18, 2017. 17:00

Despite their poor start to the 2017/18 South African Premier Soccer League season, Bidvest Wits CEO, Jose Ferreira, has assured coach Gavin Hunt that his job is safe.

The Braamfontein-based side failed to defend their MTN8 title and are now sitting at the bottom of the Absa Premiership log table.

Having bagged only one win, four losses and two draws so far out of seven matches, the Students are enduring a terrible spell of form as they try to defend their league title.

Ferreira, though, says they do not react to temporary setbacks at the club and that Hunt is going no where.

“We don’t do things like that at the club. We don’t react to temporary bad form. Gavin has just won us the league for the first time in the club’s history. He also won the MTN8,” Ferreira said to IOL.

“We are not even talking about firing the coach. Gavin still has many years with us. We will only consider offers for Gavin if he is wanted by Bafana Bafana.

“At the moment they still have a coach who is good for the country in Stuart Baxter.”

The Clever Boys will visit Baroka FC on Sunday in the league and will hope to claim their second win at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Despite moving closer to their Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League title, FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza says the games are becoming more difficult.

The former Warriors international guided his side to a 2-1 win over Highlanders FC and was naturally delighted that his team cut the gap between them and Dynamos.

He also believes they can go on and win the ultimate prize, but warns it is all about perseverance and focus to win the title.

“We are still in the mix. The most important thing was for us not to be far behind in terms of points. We still have to keep pushing,” said Mapeza to News Day.

“The games are becoming difficult. I said on Sunday our life is like that of a fisherman. If you don’t catch anything it does not mean you have to lose hope.

“It’s about perseverance. We have to keep pushing; it might happen. We just have to keep believing.”

The away win against Highlanders moved Platinum to within a point of leaders Dynamos, as well as equaling Ngezi Platinum Stars’ tally of 56 points.

Ten-man AmaZulu beat PSL champions – ABSA Premiership 2017/18


AmaZulu’s Rhulani Manzini

Austin Ditlhobolo

Wednesday Sep 20, 2017. 21:46


AmaZulu thrashed Bidvest Wits 3-0 in an Absa Premiership match at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday.

As a result, Usuthu climb up to seventh spot on the league standings, while Clever Boys drop down to 15th spot on the table.

The match got off to a lively start with both sides launching attacks in search of a early goal in the opening stages.

It was hosts who broke the deallock through central defensive midfielder Michael Morton, who had pushed forward.

The hardman found some space outside the box and he fired home a curling shot from range to make it 1-0 to AmaZulu in the 11th minute.

The defending league champions then took control of the match as they searched for the equalizing goal, but AmaZulu looked dangerous on transition.

Rhulani Manzini had a chance to make it 2-0 to AmaZulu in the 27th minute, but he was denied by Wits goalkeeper Moeeneb Josephs.

Wits hardman Granwald Scott was then booked for a lunging challenge in the midfield as AmaZulu continued to frustrate the visitors.

AmaZulu were leading 1-0 at the interval following an action-packed first-half in the city of Durban.

Cavin Johnson’s side started the second-half like a house on fire as they piled pressure on the visitors and they extended their lead.

Wits full-back Phumlani Ntshangase handled the ball in the box and AmaZulu were given a penalty which was scored by Rhulani Manzini to make it 2-0.

Usuthu continued their dominance over the Clever Boys and Manzini made it 3-0 with a powerful low shot two minutes later.

But the home side lost Morton, who received a straight red card in the 71st minute after he pushed Wits striker Frank Mhango to the ground.

AmaZulu were reduced to ten men, but they managed to defend very well in the closing stages of the entertaining encounter.

Tapelo Nyongo and his Usuthu troops were able to contain Wits and they secured a 3-0 win.

AmaZulu (1) 3 (Morton 11′, Manzini 60′, 62′)

Wits (0) 0

AmaZulu: Mbatha S, Gumede M, Mtsweni, Nyongo, Ouro-Akoriko, Morton, Ncube (Mnguni 66′), Dlamini S, Ncobeni (Nomvethe 79′), Cele, Manzini (Mbatha 78′).

Wits: Josephs, Hlatshwayo, Khumalo, Hlanti, Scott, Motshwari, Ntshangase, Pule (Kodisang 66′), Claasen (Mhango 46′), Pienaar (Klate 46′), Gamal.

AfricanFootball previews the week’s PSL action

AfricanFootball looks ahead to a full set of Absa Premiership fixtures spread across the next three evenings, as surprise leaders Maritzburg United and Cape Town City look to continue their strong early-season form.

The action begins on Monday evening, with Mamelodi Sundowns looking to shrug off a stuttering start to the campaign when they head to Goble Park to take on Free State Stars.

It’s a tricky away match for coach Pitso Mosimane, who has also to balance out the demands of a CAF Champions League quarterfinal match on the weekend, while Ea Lla Koto will have Luc Eymael sitting on the bench for his first match since succeeding Sammy Troughton.

Another coach taking charge of his first match at a new club is Roger de Sa, who will lead bottom-placed Platinum Stars in their clash at an in-form SuperSport United on a busy Tuesday evening.

There will also be a KwaZulu-Natal derby between AmaZulu and Maritzburg United, Orlando Pirates will look to add to Ajax Cape Town’s struggles, Polokwane City will fancy their chances of a home win against Bloemfontein Celtic, and the battle between Chippa United and Baroka FC promises to be entirely unpredictable.

The round wraps up with two matches on Wednesday: Bidvest Wits and Golden Arrows will renew hostilities a few weeks after their MTN8 quarterfinal which saw no less than six red cards brandished, while Kaizer Chiefs are in desperate need of a strong performance when they head to the ‘Mother City’ to take on Benni McCarthy’s Cape Town City.

Free State Stars have parted ways with coach Sammy Troughton after leading the side for two South African Absa Premiership matches in the new 2017/18 season.

Ea Lla Koto have reportedly decided to release the coach as they are strongly linked with former Polokwane City mentor, Luc Eymael.

Troughton joined Stars ahead of the new campaign as he prepared the team in their pre-season, but a 1-0 loss to AmaZulu and a 2-2 draw against Bidvest Wits was not enough for him to keep his job.

Media reports reveal that the Bethlehem-based club has fired the former University of Pretoria and Stellenbosch FC coach on Wednesday night after the draw against the league champions, Wits.

On the other hand, Eymael has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier Soccer League and reports indicate that he is back in the country.

Stars occupy the 13th spot on the log table from two matches and will meet Mamelodi Sundowns at Goble Park Stadium on Tuesday, 12 September.

SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns will open their 2017/18 Absa Premiership campaign with a derby clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on 19 August 2017, kick-off at 15h00.

SuperSport had a mixed campaign in 2016/17: they looked capable of challenging for the league title (even going on a 19-game unbeaten run) but they ended up a disappointing fifth after losing five of their last 10 matches. However, they won the Nedbank Cup and finished as runners-up in the Telkom Knockout.

As for Mamelodi Sundowns, they relinquished their PSL title to Bidvest Wits, losing out in a tough battle to Gavin Hunt’s side. Yet their triumph in the 2016 CAF Champions League underlined their status as one of the continent’s finest teams and they will enter this new campaign determined to reassert domestic dominance.

Both sides have seen some significant changes in the offseason: United have Eric Tinkler as their coach following Stuart Baxter’s move to become Bafana Bafana boss, while ‘Downs have made waves by signing Oupa Manyisa from Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.

In head-to-head terms, United and Sundowns have clashed in 52 league matches since 1990. The Brazilians have dominated the rivalry, claiming 27 wins compared to 14 for Matsatsantsa. The team in blue and white have managed just five wins from 26 home league matches against their rivals, the last of which arrived in the 2012/13 season.

Last term the Brazilians claimed a league ‘double’ over their fellow Tshwane club: ‘Downs claimed an emphatic 5-0 home win in the first half of the campaign, while the return game saw Pitso Mosimane’s side triumph 1-0. It was Sundowns’ seventh successive league win over Matsatsantsa.

New Platinum Stars striker Maboke Matlakala is confident the club will do well in the upcoming 2017/18 Premier Soccer League term.

The former Baroka FC forward has settled down in Rustenburg and is looking forward to a successful stay with the side.

Matlakala is adapting to new methods of training under the watchful eye of coach Peter Butler and says he is happy in Phokeng.

“From the first day everyone has been happy to have me here and they have been helpful. It’s a different setup from where I am come from,” he tells the club’s website.

“So far I am happy here and I am honoured to be a part of Platinum Stars. They are a good team, they have been doing fairly well in the league and I am looking forward to helping the team achieve our goals for future.

“There are a few things that I have never done before and I am doing them here. I see this as a great opportunity for me because before it was all about scoring goals and just being that player upfront.

“Now I am learning to play around outside the box and working well with the team.

“I am ready. I want to grow and I see this as a new challenge. It you look at the players that I will be competing with for a place in the team, it’s not going to be easy for me.”

Dikwena will open their Absa Premiership account against Maritzburg United on Sunday afternoon, August 20 at Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Cape Town City attacker Ayanda Patosi has revealed that it has been easy for him to adapt to training at the club, as his Premier Soccer League (PSL) debut edges ever closer.

Patosi, 24, hails from Khayelitsha but is yet to play top-flight football in South Africa having moved to Belgium straight from the ASD Academy in 2011.

Following six years at KSC Lokeren, Patosi is now set to make his South African top-flight debut with an ambitious Citizens outfit. Cape Town City open their MTN8 account at home to Polokwane City before taking on Bidvest Wits in the Absa Premiership curtain-raise on the 18th of August.

“It doesn’t feel weird – I come from Khayelitsha,” Patosi told KickOff.com.

“They say South Africans like to play using a lot of touches, and I grew up playing those kind of games, so it’s been easy to adapt at training. I know a few of the guys from the national team as well, and know the culture already from there.

“In Belgium it’s more physical. There the play is very direct, while here it’s different – the players play, and there are more touches. Here the entire team can play football as opposed to there,” Patosi concluded.

Times are getting tougher for the Zimbabwean Premier League side, Caps United as they registered another loss against Chicken Inn on Wednesday at the Luveve Stadium.

The Green Machine are yet to win a league match since their CAF Champions League exit last month.

However, assistant coach Fungi Kwashi believes they are just going through a rough patch and will bounce back.

Obadiah Tarumbwa netted a brace whilst Passmore Bernard netted the third goal for the hosts who climbed to the top of the log table.

The Green Machine are playing catch-up to other teams on the local front following their exit from the CAF Champions League.

However, the reigning league champions have found it difficult as they recorded their fifth defeat in the campaign, a result that left them deep in the relegation zone.

Coach Lloyd Chitembwe, who appears to be crumbling under pressure, sent his assistant Fungai Kwashi to face the media after the match.

“Well done to Chicken Inn. This is football. It was not our day. We lost and we are not happy about it. But every big team goes through a bad patch,” said Kwashi to the News Day.

“We remain united and we will keep on working hard. We are definitely not going to be relegated. God will lift us from this.

“We will bounce back. The journey is still long. We have 21 games remaining.”
