TALKING to one of South Africa’s football legends, former Orlando Pirates player and Jomo Cosmos owner can be fun, raffles feathers and eye-opening. JERRY BARNES spoke to him about his preparations back to PSL.

Jerry Barnes (JB): Bra J, the Black Prince of SA soccer and trouble­ maker, welcome back to the big league.

Jomo Sono (JS): Thanks my brother, it was a battle out there, but I’m glad to be back to PSL.

JB: It has been long Bra J, but at least you finally made it. Would you say you took a bit longer than expected?

JS: Eish, you may say so. We took a couple of seasons in the National First Division (NFD), but you must remember that life is not easy in the NFD.

JB: I can imagine, ut why are you saying life is difficult in the NFD?

JS: Eish, before I get accused of saying the wrong things, let me rather say, life is hell in the NFD.

JB: Tell us a bit about NFD’s standards compared to PSL’s.

JS: I won’t lie to you, the NFD standard is very high, but maybe there are a few things that need to be improved.

JB: Please spell it out for us.

JS: For now let me rather say a couple of sponsors are needed by the NFD.


B: Wait, I don’t get it. You said a few things need to be improved and you mentioned sponsors that are needed.

JS: Look, soccer is big business and it will be always impossible to run a business without funds. Good funds makes good business.

JB: A lot of people are worried that you might spend one season and then go back to the NFD.

JS: Count us out at your own peril­.

We are here to make history. I personally know that Jomo Cosmos­ is here to stay and will never­ ever go down to NFD again.

JB: Bra J, well done again, we are all happy to see your team in the big league. All the best Mjomana.

JS: Thanks a million, sir. My big thank you also go to my passionate supporters who went through a lot with us.

Also my players displayed a lot of commitment, dedication and passion for Cosmos
