Orlando Pirates and Mozambique International striker Hélder Pelembe has officially defended his teammates following the nude pictures of several Orlando Pirates posing nude with the Nedbank Cup trophy.
Speaking to the Siya crew Pelembe encouraged people to move on from the incident because what is done is done.
“it is really bad that the picture made its way to the public, as it wasn’t meant to. It was just one of those crazy moments as we were all happy to win the trophy. I’d like to apologise to everyone associated with the club for the mistake of one of my teammates putting the picture out there in public,” said Pelembe.
“A lot of people have called me about the picture this side and I’m sure it is even worse that side (South Africa). It is really a shame man and, unfortunately, we can’t do anything about it now,” added the Bucs man.
