Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi
Sundowns midfielder Tyren Arendse believes Sundowns and Bidvest Wits are
favourites to take the Absa Premiership title.
Arendse, who spent two years at Pirates as well another two with
Sundowns from 2004 until 2008, also takes the view that Cape Town City
are a dark horse in the title race.
The 38-year-old ruled out both Kaizer Chiefs and Pirates for the crown despite the fact that both clubs are in the running.
Currently, the Brazilians lead the Premiership by three points with the Sea Robbers in second.
He told Soccer Laduma: "As I said, I think it's going to be between
Sundowns and Wits to win it. But obviously, as a Cape Town boy and for
Benni, I'd say also Cape Town City.
"I think he (Benni) is done with playing with Wits and Sundowns, but I
think he might have a big say coming towards the end of the season.
"As for Chiefs and Pirates, there have been too many inconsistencies,
you know. Pirates look decent and they look strong. But when you expect
them to win games, they drop points.
"The way they play under Micho (Milutin Sredojevic), I think they
play brilliant football but sometimes they need to just grind out the
results. Sometimes that's what it takes to get to the top."
