It now looks likely that a Premier Soccer League star who has come under scrutiny for his insensitive gaffe last week could escape punishment from his club.
Tebogo Potsane, who has played 14 Absa Premiership games for Bloemfontein Celtic this season and scored once, made an error in judgement when he impersonated an SANDF officer during lockdown in a video he put online where he says that he will ‘show you no mercy’ – a video in bad taste given the current pandemic of the Covid-19.
Speaking to Lesedi FM, Celtic media officer Sello Nduna set the record straight and said Potsane was neither arrested nor did he have to pay a R10 000 fine for having been caught impersonating a soldier or police offer.
It’s now been suggested that Celtic would look the other way having reprimanded the player last week and moved on from the matter, with the midfielder issuing an apology and stating that he meant no harm by his video on social media.
PSL players are currently training on their own at home and the league is still hopeful things will normalise again post the nationwide lockdown as they are determine to conclude the 2019/20 season by June 30.
