SA Football Coach With A Goal Celebration Pogba Would Be Proud Of
SA Football Coach Goal Celebration
Eye-catching goal celebrations are usually left to the players on the field.
From Paul Pogba’s “dab”, Antoinne Griezman’s “Hotline Bling” dance moves to back home where Kaizer Chief’s hitman Bernard Parker rubs his elbow in delight.
Over the years there have also been coaches who have joined the act, with Clive Barker’s run down the touchline imitating an aeroplane at the 1996 African Cup of Nations, proving to be an all-time hit, while Jomo Sono’s pumping of the arms “Jomo Dance” is legendary.
Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) coach Bushy Moloi joined the band of merry-man last week with a spectacular celebration that was equal to the quality of his team’s last-gasp equalising goal against the University of Pretoria Tuks.
Moloi, who is renowned for his charismatic demeanour within Varsity Football circles, walked down the touchline pushing out his chest and strutting his stuff.
“It is a spiritual celebration,” Moloi exclaimed. “I was just so happy. It is still a baby on board situation (in regards to the youthfulness of the TUT team). My boys still need to be managed. We have really young players. We did not crack against Tuks.”
Despite being the defending Varsity Football champions, Moloi has been playing down the chances of his team’s title defence due to only having a sprinkling of last season’s squad left this year.
He believes a lot of lessons can be taken from the 1-1 draw against a strong Tukkies side but wants his charges to remain level-headed when they travel to the University of Fort Hare this week.
“In terms of awareness, the approach from Tukkies, and the physicality, they have learnt a lot. It’s the first time they have played such a huge team altogether,” he said.
“But I hope it doesn’t go to their heads that they managed to stop Tukkies. First step was preparation, second step was Tukkies and now off to Fort Hare. They are technically a good team. They have a good coach and good support at home, so it’s another challenge.”
