Siwelele On Morena: 'Don't Be Bitter To The Laaitie'

It was announced on Thursday that young Bloemfontein Celtic star Thapelo Morena will be a Mamelodi Sundowns player. Whether the 23-year-old will make the grade at Chloorkop or not remains to be seen, but what is certain is that the Siwelele supporters feel left out.

There has been much bitterness and resentment passed Morena's way following his decision to sign for Downs. However, on the Bloem Celtic supporters' private Facebook group, one brave supporter stood up to the rest and offered some consoling words regarding the whole situation.

"I know some gonna bite my head off... but I don't give a rat's a** about that...

"I know we are hurt and disappointed about this whole Thapelo Morena saga...

"But let's be realistic and see this from a financial situation point of view... lol... excuse my Greek...

"E.g... let's make an example about you... you earn R2 000 PM at your current job... and there is a new post somewhere at another company that's gonna give you R6 000 PM... what you gonna do?

"So, please, masele...let's stop being bitter to this laaitie just because he left us hanging... re sa lebeletse tse ngata ho yena... and stop cursing and swearing at him... ke ngwana motho le ena... o shebile bophelo ba hae le ena... loyalty doesn't pay bills...

"As for him going to sit on a bench at Sundowns or being a career suicide... let him worry about that, not you... dankie."

The supporter's name has been left out to protect his privacy.

Does Morena's decision to move to Downs make sense to you? Or should loyalty count for more?
