The first ever Carling Black Label Cup will be taking place this Saturday at the FNB stadium between rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
The fans had the rights to “play” coach and pick the members of the starting 11 for each team and after a reported number of over 9 million votes below are the players that will make up each team…
Kaizer Chiefs starting XI:
Khune, Tau, Sweswe, Isaacs, Molekwane, Dladla, Masango, Tshabalala, Nale, Khune and Ngcobo.
Orlando Pirates starting XI:
Josephs, Jele, Cloete, Mahamutsa, Lekgwathi, Jali, Mbuyane, Manyisa, Mayambela, Ndulula and Msowoya.
I wonder how many fans tried to sabotage the game by voting for the weakest players to take part. I found it funny when Tshabalala was a bit worried during the week when he realised he might not cut it to play but obviously Khosi fans kept voting and he made the team. Kaizer Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic revealed that he is not really happy with the format of this cup as it gives the coaches no power over the game and their players but also that he would embrace the new change.
