It’s Monday, which means it’s time for the top 10 Tweets of the Week from South African football.
With the January transfer window well and truly underway, and the CHAN tournament upon us, the tweets this week have largely been focused on those two events.
SAFA praised Bafana Bafana for their ‘gritty’ win over Mozambique:

While captain, Itumeleng Khune, praised goalscorer, Hlompho Kekana, for his stunning goal:
@IIKHUNE_32_16: “What a rocket from @Hlompho_Kekana. Well done homie. Keep up the gud work.”
To which the midfielder replied:
@Hlompho_Kekana: “@IIKHUNE_32_16 Well done Captain leading from the front and always good to play with all dese players :D”
Kekana’s Sundowns teammate, Teko Modise, was also watching:
