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.
This week was largely a Telkom Knockout affair, with Orlando Pirates and Platinum Stars knocking out SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs to make it to their second consecutive final of the season.
Pirates defender, Thabo Matlaba, thanked the fans following their victory:
@ThaboMatlaba8: “We did it Bucs. We are into the final of the Telkom Knockout Cup. You guys have been super ka support ya lena.”
As did his team’s official account, who wished them a safe trip home:
@Orlando_Pirates: “Thank you to The Ghost that made their way to Atteridgeville to support the team. Please travel home safely.”
Meanwhile, Dikwena’s account showed their joy following victory over the Amakhosi:
@PlatinumStarsFC: “Kaizer Chiefs’ dance stops immediately as Dikwena knocks them out of @TelkomKnockout tournament. Beautiful game, we did! Victory! We Resume!”
Although one person who was not pleased was SuperSport striker, Bradley Grobler, who missed the game due to injury:
@Bradley_Grobler: “So disappointed to be missing this game today but all the best to the team. Make us proud @SuperSportFC.”
Mpumalanga Black Aces spoke with pride of Mabhudi Khenyeza’s community work:
@MPBlackAces: “Really proud of Mabhudi for all his community work. Coaching Leeuwkop Prison for last 6 years & donating his own kit! http://t.co/kQ8wtQl4n0”
Another team that had a good week was Polokwane City, who beat University of Pretoria 3-0:
@polokwane_city: Three points and three goals remain at home. Thank you once again Limpopo for your support, Please arrive alive.
While Darren Keet had a great game in Belgium, saving a penalty to help his side draw:
@popeyekeet: “Thanks to all out supporters for coming out and for all your kind words. It was a good team performance in the end.”
It was a bitter sweet week for Dean Furman, scoring and getting sent off for Doncaster Rovers:
@de4no22: “What an eventful week it's been! Delighted with the much needed 3 points last night but gutted with my 1st career red!”
Agent, Mike Makaab, explained to his followers that overseas moves are not always the answer:
@MikeMakaab: “@ProsportInt are always looking at opportunities for our clients, but it has to be a good CAREER move, not for the sake of "going overseas".”
Chiefs winger, Matthew Rusike, had some words of wisdom for his followers:
@mattyrusike: “Greatness is not this esoteric or unobtainable value. You reap what you sow.”
