Cape Town - A Zimbabwean church leader has sued SuperSport after reportedly predicting Liverpool to win this season's English Premiership title.

According to, Spirit Embassy Church leader Prophet Uebert Angel is suing SuperSport for $1.5 million after they published an article quoting Angel, saying he believed that the 18-time English league champions would return to their illustrious past.

The article, published in late December last year, is no longer available on the website.

Angel claims that he never made the claims and that the article itself was defamatory and has put his reputation in jeopardy, claiming that he risks losing followers as a result.

Angel's lawyers have served the court summons to SuperSport's agent in Zimbabwe, Skynet, in a case which has been requested to be presided over in Zimbabwe's High Court.

Liverpool, currently second on the English Premiership table, have not won the league title in the Premiership era, last lifting the title after the 1989/90 season.
