‘SAFA Didn’t Have A Choice’

With the COSAFA Cup only a few days away, all eyes will be on the National team, as Bafana Bafana finds themselves in a group with Botswana, Lesotho, and Eswatini. Recent news has shown that Orlando Pirates have refused to release 3 plays from club duty, to represent their country as the club wants these players to be well-rested for the start of the new PSL season, as heading off for international duty promotes risk to injuries and fatigue. Orlando Pirates have been competing in the PSL as well as the Confederations Cup, sometimes playing 3 games a week. “This is way more than the normal amount of games for a team,” said Orlando Pirates Spokesperson. Speaking on the SL Podcast’s “The Carwash” Sean Roberts and Teko Modise agreed with the Buccaneers’ decision regarding the matter of the COSAFA Cup.
