Orlando Pirates’ high came to a calamitous end on Wednesday evening in Mbombela, following a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of a Bradley Grobler-led SuperSport United.
As a result of this, the Buccaneers became the butt of some harsh Twitter trolls.
This was not what the Soweto giants had planned at the beginning of the season, having bolstered their squad with the addition of nine new players, Coach Milutin Sredojevic’s team were expected to start the season guns blazing.
To their credit, Pirates did hand Bloemfontein Celtic a 3-1 lashing in the opening week of the season but it all came crashing down when they faced their hoodoo side in the form of Matsatsantsa.
The memory of the 6-0 defeat they suffered from the same opponent at the same venue two seasons ago, was still fresh in the minds of the Pirates supporters and they were handed a tough reminder of it.
Goals from Grobler and Ghampani Lungu proved to be the nails in Bucs’ coffin and soon the Twitter trolls started rolling in.
Check out some of the funny Twitter trolls.
