Who will scoop the 2016 Carling Black Label Champion Cup Soweto Derby?

Philani Ndlovu and Sifiso Jali Mahlangu have been named as the two lucky 'Champion Coaches' competition winners, to lead Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates respectively on Saturday at the highly-anticipated Carling Black Label Cup.

Ndlovu will work along side Coach Steve Khomphela, and Mahlangu will work with the new Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral.

This is an opportunity of a lifetime for the two men. They get to be part of decision making on the field this coming Saturday.

Though their powers are of course limited, they do have some say in substitutions, and how things play out on the field.

Speaking to 702's Azania Mosaka, Mahlangu insists Pirates will win the derby #Reafeela like they did before, while Ndlovu says Pirates need to watch and learn.

When I was announced as a weekly finalist i didn't expect it. You know when you start entering the competition and win airtime not knowing that out of 40 million people in South Africa your name will be mentioned

Ndlovu says they went through an extensive screening of writing tests, going through interviews and talking to different media. He says the experience was really worth it.

Both Mahlangu and Ndlovu say they are happy with the teams the fans helped to assemble for Saturday's game.

Kick off will be at 15:00 on Saturday 30 July at FNB Stadium.
