Maake said as a child he had a similar experience to Chauke, who chose to support Pirates even though she grew up in a Chiefs household. The 63-year-old Chiefs fan said he rebelled against his Moroka Swallows-supporting family to be an Amakhosi supporter.

Maake said he respects the bravery of Chauke's choice to leave Pirates. But he also said he could never make a similar decision.“We supporters are not employed by the teams, we just go there for the love of the game to put the passion for the team. It's only a few supporters — I can count them — who are working at their clubs,” Maake told TimesLIVE. headtopics.com

“Most fans support the team because they love the team. We understand 100% that the teams make us loyal, make us celebrities, make us heroes.“People know Saddam because of Kaizer Chiefs. I'm working with Bafana now ... but I'm still Kaizer Chiefs, I'll never leave Kaizer Chiefs.

“Unless you call me to say come help us as supporters, as supporters' co-ordinator [for Safa] to tell us how to market the launch a brand, how to behave — because I am doing that at Bafana Bafana But to join a team as a supporter, I can't.”Maake, though, said he understands Chauke's choice.

“But now, for Joy, I think it's good for her to go there [to Royal]. Because I called her and asked her, and she explained it to me.“She told me, 'I want to go there because the poor lady [Royal owner Shauwn Mkhize] was struggling to come up through the First Division, and she even bought Celtic, which shows her commitment to soccer'. And that's why I support her. headtopics.com
