“The senior players were totally right to be furious with such celebration behavior from young Siyabonga Ngezana. It was in the early stages of the game and to get a booking, he puts himself under pressure as a defender in terms of accumulating the second booking, which can lead to a red card. We understand he was over excited since he hasn’t scored in a while.”
The sentiments of SL Supporter @ Steven-Brian was widely shared amongst the Kaizer Chiefs fans following their 4-0 demolition of Stellenbosch.
The outcry came after Ngezana opened the scoring early on in the game for Amakhosi and the young defender who was deputizing for the suspended Eric Mathoho, removed his shirt during wild celebrations.
Senior players like Bernard Parker and Willard Katsande did not take kindly to the gesture and used stern measures to reprimand the lanky star.
The duo were lauded by SL Supporter @ MalumePikinini lauded the experienced duo for their leadership shown
“They showed that they are mature and experienced, thanks for the good leadership.”
Meanwhile SL Supporter @ Maloh11 lamented the side’s bookings this season, pinning is as one of the reasons for their Telkom Knockout semifinal exit at the hands of Maritzburg United.
“Great leadership from Katsande and ‘Die Hond’ we do not need unnecessary bookings, they cost us the TKO now we are a laughing stock.”
Do you think Katsande and Parker were justified to react the way they did towards Ngezana’s celebration?
