    The only person who can shake up our boardroom is none other than Ace Ncobo if our President left for Caf.
    That guy has got leadership qualities in making to be our CEO not this people that are still there on Management except the board.
    Even our Mother Mrs Motsepe won’t manage because of her workload, but I stand to be corrected. Lastly kuthiwa we’ve got a youngster that We signed from Nigeria ya our team is more than secretive.

      Rip Anele… two things I failed to understand.. the Sundowns supporter.. who’ has a problem, with members not happy to hear the sad news from other publications… instead of our own.. site first….2…is Sundowns management really trying to sell our rivals.. and PISTO…are we not going for the second 🌟… this business deals.. are killing our football.. look how many players, we’ve bought.. for what good reason…SEBEQALILE..

    You played your role in football and thank you for entertaining us. RIP in eternal peace Anele ‘son of the soil’ Ngcongca.

    Rest in power Anele “Son of the Soil” Ngcongca. You always gave everything whenever you entered the pitch. Very dependable. Coach Pitso knew when he needed more stability in difficult games such as away CAF Champs games in North Africa, he will call on you.
    You will be dearly missed. I can’t help but think had the team not sent you on loan, you might still be with us. Anyway no one knows his/her final day and death will always be our greatest enemy. May your family find strength in this difficult. The Sundowns family mourns with the Ngcongca family. God Bless

    So sad to lose a player like this, what a human being he was, a father to his kids. What a soul, so down to earth person.May God be with his family. Death never stops to take those we love most.

    Kufa awunoni!! Death a thief a d robber!! We were robbed of a talent with character. Death robbed us of a leader in the football fraternity. These are the people that the future looked unto. We are saddened ,we are heart broken and still ask ourselves many unanswered questions. It was too soon. The soldier of the game. Well mentored, well disciplined in the field of play. The good works shall remain, they shall speak for him. Peace Masandawana,peace to the lovers of the game.Much comfort to the family,our prayers are with them.

    Geriatric, this platform is to inform people, especially sundowns supporters. It’s not normal for a very important information like this to learn it from other platforms. If it is Sundowns policy to give info in the last minute even important ones, it means that there is something wrong, and what is the needs to have the club website? As the club stakeholders, we have the rights to be the first to learn about what is happening in our team.

    I think PITSO Mosimane has done well for SUNDOWNS FC BUT that doesn’t allows him to comment in way that is negative to our current technical team and PITSO does not own SUNDOWNS FC or SUNDOWNS FC OWES Him since he left the TEAM he has nothing to do with the changes that are taking place at Chloorkop, because the current technical team is trying to sort out the mess that was created by PITSO Himself. We support SUNDOWNS FC but you can’t sign so many players because budget allows you to do so, PITSO WASTED A LOT OF MONEY FOR MOTSHEPE AND WASTED A LOT PLAYERS CAREERS, so he must focus on the 🇪🇬 team and leave SUNDOWNS FC alone

  11. Philani

    It is an insult to our current technical team because PITSO blame them for the death of ANELE NGCONGCA, I think PITSO must be angry to his favorites because he even did not saw that Wayne Arense was suspended yet he recalled him from the stand again against CELTICS FC IN the final LANGER AN was included in the 18 th man squad even if he was suspended hayi PITSO need to be changed by the SUNDOWNS FC to teach him to focus on his own business

  12. Philani

    Even he was still coaching Bafana bafana he sent the wrong message to the boys that a draw would be enough to secure them next round or so but not taking anything away from him he’s a good coach
