Mshishi Questions Players After Viral Philly’s Game Incident

Mamelodi Sundowns star Themba Zwane says the viral incident at the Philly’s games will not help South African football grow.

Zwane, 33, is widely considered one of the greatest PSL players of the modern era and has often been lauded as one of the most skillful players in local football.

He was in attendance at the tournament this year for a couple of days and despite his flamboyant style of play – he feels the players laying on the ground and allowing the opposition to score is taking it too far in the name of flair.

“To be honest, I didn’t watch the game but I just saw clips that were trending. In my opinion, I don’t think what they were doing is going to help us to grow as a country, because we want to go forward and grow as players,” Zwane said.

“But what they were doing, I don’t think we’re going forward [doing that], they need to change their game, be more business-minded – that’s what football is moving to. 

“It’s very important for them to watch games like the World Cup, AFCON, so that they can see when they talk about dribbling, they talk about going forward, dribbling, doing something, creating something for the team, creating chances…”

Zwane looks set to take centre stage when the DStv Premiership resumes with Sundowns hosting Orlando Pirates at Loftus Versveld on Friday afternoon.
