This week’s PSL Hot Seat returns with a rather unusual look to it, in that Kaizer Chiefs don’t get a mention, but fear not, we still have Pitso Mosimane, Oupa Manyisa and much more.
Here is our PSL Hot Seat…
Winners – Cape Town Football
It is rare that we can claim Cape Town football as a winner, but this past weekend two teams flew the flag for the Western Province. With both Vasco Da Gama and Ajax Cape Town into the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup, they certainly can be proud of their achievement.
Losers- Bidvest Wits
While they may have technically outplayed Ajax in Friday evening’s quarter-final match in the Nedbank Cup, the Clever Boys continued to rue their missed chances after having hit the woodwork four times in that encounter.
Topic Of Discussion – The Referees
Following on from last week’s debacle with the referees in both Sundowns' and Chiefs’ games, the PSL’s match officials have come under fire for their questionable displays. Surprisingly, Pitso Mosimane was left to comment on the referees after yesterday's game, and his remark was more complimentary than battering.
Do you think performances of match officials should be reviewed?
They Said What? – ‘Wits Want Manyisa!’
When asked about Orlando Pirates’ interest in Papy Faty, Gavin Hunt recently revealed to SLTV that he is eager to have Oupa Manyisa. However, his tone was rather sarcastic knowing that a move would be unlikely. He claimed that if the Bucs give Wits R10m for Faty then, just maybe, a transfer will occur.
European Watch – Riise Linked To The PSL
Often we see big names from Europe linked with a move to the Absa Premiership as they look to earn a quick buck before hanging up their boots. This time, ex-Liverpool defender John Arne Riise has been linked with a switch to South Africa, however, his high wage demands may have hampered any possible deal.
