SuperSport crowned South African champions

JOHANNESBURG - SuperSport United won a second successive South African premier league title on Saturday, edging out Orlando Pirates on goal difference. A nervous 0-0 away draw at Santos in Stellenbosch was enough for SuperSport to retain their crown as Pirates, coached by former Dutch World Cup defender Ruud Krol (pictured), won their last game at home to AmaZulu 3-1 to finish level on 55 points. Both sides qualify for the African Champions League.
