How will the PSL handle things? Catch the debate on the Carwash by clicking on the podcast player below!
This week has had some interesting outbreaks of news revolving around the local game. Royal AM and Chippa United were set to partake in a PSL play-off fixture, however, a few moments before the game was set to commence, Royal AM boycotted and eventually left the stadium, forcing a forfeit.
Causing huge controversy, it has now come out that Royal AM owner, Shauwn Mkhize, has said that she and the team will honour the play-off against Chippa. Speaking on the Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates star, Teko Modise says, “Will they be punished and pay for damages?” This news has caused mixed feelings around South Africa, with some agreeing with Mkhiize's decision and some not so much.
Another big talking point coming out of the last week is that Helman Mkhalele has announced his selected team for the upcoming COSAFA Cup, set to begin in Gqeberha, in July. Bafana Bafana has been drawn in a group with Botswana, Lesotho, and Eswatini, when speaking on the matter, former Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns keeper, Sean Roberts said that, “although the group may seem easy, it puts pressure on Bafana and we all know what happens to Bafana under pressure.”
In the latest episode of SL Podcast’s 'The Carwash' Modise and Roberts discuss the CAF Champions League semi-final second leg fixtures with Kaizer Chiefs sitting in a somewhat comfortable position, the selected squad for Bafana, who will feature at the COSAFA Cup in July, as well as the boycott of fixtures by Royal AM.
Later in the show, the Carwash crew is joined by Soccer Laduma international news correspondent, Kurt Buckerfield to talk about all things EURO 2020, as well as an in-depth breakdown of the game of the week!
