Tinkler 'Muti' Saga Remains A Major Social Media Talking Point

The controversy surrounding Maritzburg United's promotion play-off fixture this week became a massive talking point in the South African football fraternity. Have you seen how some fans reacted to it on social media?

Maritzburg United travelled to the Thohoyandou Stadium to face Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in their promotion play-off fixture and managed to come away with a vital 2-0 victory.

Believing it to be "muti", Tinkler mentioned after the game that the team had to get changed in the bus as a result.
