Nigeria International, Daniel Akpeyi’s Kaizer Chiefs’ hopes of winning this season’s South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) title ended in disappointment, as rivals Mamelodi Sundowns were crowned champions on the final day of the campaign yesterday.

Akpeyi was not in action for Kaizer Chiefs after he was ruled out with concussion.

Going into Saturday’s crucial away game against relegation threatened Baroka, Kaizer Chiefs needed an outright win to claim a first league title since 2015.

Unfortunately, they could only draw 1-1 despite taking the lead in the tension-soaked encounter.
