PSL Tweets Of The Week
It’s Monday, which means it’s time for the top 10 Tweets of the Week from South African football.
The focus this week was on the CAF competitions, Champions League and Confederation Cup, however both Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United saw themselves knocked out.
Kaizer Chiefs’ injured goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, was not happy with their opposition’s shot-stopper in their 2-0 win:
@IIKHUNE_32_16: “There's time wasting and then there's the #ASVita keeper...”
While their communications manager, Vina Maphosa, also wasn’t pleased:
@alfavina: “We were cheated honestly but that's how it goes - no excuse though.”
However, there was a nice show of patriotism before the game as Chiefs wished SuperSport well:
@Kaizer_Chiefs: “Good luck @SuperSportFC Catch @SuperSportFC vs Etoile Sportive Du Sahel TODAY at the Lucas Moripe Stadium at 20H15 #CCC #SkeemaMatsatsantsa”
@SuperSportFC: “Wishing @Kaizer_Chiefs all the best for their #CCL fixture against AS Vita Club tonight #SAWeStand #SSFootball #SkeemaMatsatsantsa”
Meanwhile, SuperSport’s striker, Mame Niang, called for support prior to the game:
@niangmamec: “SSU and KC need support at the Stadiums tomorrow to go through.”
