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 we remember the 43 football fans that died at the Ellis Park tragedy in 2001, with several players and clubs paying their respects.
 
The PSL’s official account, tweeted on behalf of the chairman, Irvin Khoza:
@OfficialPSL: “Our thoughts & prayers continue to be with the families of those football supporters who lost their lives." -Dr Khoza.  #EllisParkTragedy”
 
While Orlando Pirates had their own message:
@Orlando_Pirates: “ON THIS DAY: Remembering all the supporters who lost their lives in the Ellis Park Disaster on 11 April 2001. ‪#RIP43 pic.twitter.com/PHTtcy1ixj”
 
As did Kaizer Chiefs:
@Kaizer_Chiefs: “11 April 2001 - The Ellis Park Disaster.The 43 people who passed on that night will forever be remembered. #EveryGameWePlayForYou”
 
Meanwhile, Kaizer Motaung Junior also had his say on the sad events that happened that day:
@kaizerm_jnr: “Morning Makhosi! Today we share in prayers for the 43 football loving souls who passed on,on this day in 2001. God Bless their families! K4l✌”
 
With regards to the football though, there was a shock as Mpumalanga Black Aces beat Kaizer Chiefs 1-0:
@mpblackaces: “Unbelievably happy scenes in the Aces change room at the moment. Aces director Stratos Mnguni is leading the prayers!”
 
On a game that was Itumeleng Khune’s 200th Chiefs appearance:
@SenzoMey1: “Congrats @IIKHUNE_32_16 for 200 games. Not easy, but thanks to hard work & focus you made it. Another 200 to go. Well done outie yami.”
 
Meanwhile, Dino Ndlovu was unhappy with SuperSport’s Nedbank Cup defeat to Chiefs:
@dino08bravo: “I believe everything happens for a reason and those who try to bring me down my destiny lies in Gods hands #hustler #motivated”
 
Though Mamelodi Sundowns’ Cuthbert Malajila was delighted that Liverpool beat Manchester City:
@cazola1985: “Stevie G my captain in tears ......we"ll never walk alone .....”
 
Lehlohonolo Majoro thanked his fans for the wishes after he was lucky to escape a car accident unharmed:
@BalloJoro: “Thanks to all who wished me a speedy recovery and those who kept me in their prayers..... God does exist nd loves us all...stay blessed”
 
And South African legend, Lucas Radebe, said congratulations to Kaiser Chiefs, the band named because of him, after their album went number one in the UK:
@LucasRadebe: “Congrats to Simon and the boys @KaiserChiefs for #1 album in the UK. Wow, great album! #EEEandW #MOT”
