Eyewitness News sports reporter Michael Pedro says the likes of Pirates and Chiefs must give their managers financial backing.

Mamelodi Sundowns defeated SuperSport United 3-1 at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday to be crowned league champions.

Sundowns won the 2020/2021 title with three games to spare. It is the club's fourth straight league title and sees the side rack up a record 11th PSL title.

Eyewitness News sports reporter Michael Pedro has more.

Pitso laid the foundation and the three coaches are doing well. Money also played a role, especially given what happened last year with the pandemic and a lot of clubs losing money and having to sell their best players just to survive as a football club.

Look at the likes of Peter Shalulile, coming from Highlands Park and now being the top goalscorer. Sundowns bought half of what was Bidvest Wits.

If the likes of Pirates and Chiefs don't give their managers financial backing, we could end up seeing a situation like Bayern Munich, where they won nine league titles in a row, or Juventus in Serie A. It could become pretty much a one-team league.
