Bucs class of '95 set standard, says Cheeseboy

Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns star Lebohang 'Cheeseboy' Mokoena believes the Bucs side that won the Champions League in 1995 set the example when it comes to entertainment.

The current Ajax Cape Town winger is of the belief that for stadium attendances to rise, the football on the field of play needs to be effective as well as entertaining.

The Premier Soccer League has become known for matches being played in front of threadbare crowds. In particular, the Urban Warriors often struggle to draw support when they play less high profile fixtures.

The 30-year-old, who is attempting to rebuild his career after it stagnated at Chloorkop, told Soccer Laduma: "I can't be paying a total of R100, for example, to come to the stadium, sit there and watch the ball fly from one end to the other, like I'm watching tennis.

"Sometimes I will be watching a game on television and I see a supporter falling asleep and I'm like, 'What?' To me, that's a sign that such supporters are not happy with what they're getting for their money’s worth.

"If you look at the Orlando Pirates team that won the CAF Champions League as well as the Bafana Bafana Class of 1996, if you look at the stadiums then and compare to now, it is completely different."

Cheeseboy has made three appearances so far during his time in Cape Town.

The former Pirates attacker will be hoping that Ajax Cape Town can reverse their bad form and move off the bottom of the PSL standings when they face Maritzburg United on Saturday at Cape Town stadium.
