Orlando Pirates winger, Khethokwakhe Masuku, has apologised to the club supporters for his unsporting behaviour in the match against Santos last Friday.
This comes after the winger decided to put his headphones on while sitting on the bench following his substitution in the 2-0 win over the People’s Team in the Nedbank Cup last Friday.
In a letter addressed to the fans and sent to the official Pirates website, Masuku expresses his regret for this incident.
Here is Masuku's letter, which was posted on orlandopiratesfc.com:
“I wish to apologise unreservedly to the Chairman of the Club Dr Irvin Khoza, the management, the technical team, my team mates, the League, the club fans and the sporting fraternity at large, for acting in the manner I did in the match against Santos, while sitting on the bench.
"After being substituted, I was overcome by emotions thus I acted in the manner I did, which I understand is by no means justifiable.
"I have been in football for a few good years, and I could have handled my personal frustrations a lot better.
I know that wearing headsets/headphones while on the bench is unacceptable and above all disrespectful and it is for this reason that I have written this apology letter. Once again I want to express my deepest regret at what I did."
