African football icon Jay-Jay Okocha says that Mamelodi Sundowns are his favourite team in South Africa, likening them to La Liga giants Barcelona.
The former Bolton Wanderers and Paris Saint-Germain dribbling-wizard touched down in South Africa this past weekend as part of the Bundesliga Legends Tour.
When asked which team he fancied the most out of Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Sundowns, the Super Eagles legend was quick to point out his admiration for Pitso Mosimane’s charges.

‘Well, for me, I love Sundowns,’ he told Soccer Laduma.
‘I like the way they play. I don’t think it is a fluke that they call them “the Brazilians”, you know.
‘They look like FC Barcelona of South Africa,’ he concluded.
Okocha managed to stop by his favourite club in the Absa Premiership as he met the former CAF Champions League winners at Chloorkop for a meet-and-greet.
