CHAINE SHOWS CHARACTER

Despite losing his mother, the Orlando Pirates goalkeeper showed his strong mentality to play the Soweto derby. Indeed, this was something fans loved to see: a player giving his all, even in difficult times.

The Pirates’ goalkeeping department had been under the spotlight since Senzo Meyiwa’s death. Over the years, they failed to find a proper replacement for Senzo, but Chaine made fans believe again.

In October 2023, Chaine left fans in tears, remembering Senzo after he saved penalties in the MTN8 final against Mamelodi Sundowns. Some fans claimed that Senzo’s spirit rose in Chaine, and he had been impressed.

Producing such a performance in the Soweto derby and helping the team win after losing a parent was another plus.
