Wits Fan: No One Will Recognise You In Second Place

Bidvest Wits suffered a late goal to deny them a win over Mpumalanga Black Aces on Tuesday night. This effectively ends any realistic chance they have of snatching the league title this season, and it seems that, while the supporters are proud of the campaign the Clever Boys have had, second place is not an achievement to remember…

In a heartfelt interview with Supporters Club, Mpho Ramahlo spoke of the severe heart pain felt by Wits' faithfuls.

"Life is bad. We lost our chance. We have no one to blame but ourselves," he said. 

"As supporters, we can't say the players let us down. We still love the club and love the coach, I have supported them for a long time.

"But this is a very, very painful moment for us."

When Supporters Club suggested to Mpho that a second-place finish was not a bad place to be for the Clever Boys, he took particular exception to this.

"You know, as supporters, we don't get paid. Our happiness is our salary, when our team wins something we are happy," he continued. 

"Why should we be congratulated? No one will recognise you at No. 2. What is the point of it all if you don't lift a trophy?"

What is your message for Wits in this time? Do you think they have the potential to win the league in future seasons?
