Orlando Pirates loanee, Thabiso Sesane has revealed the reason behind his top performance for All Stars against his mother club on Saturday night.
“I can say that it [the game] was personal to me because I wanted to win, and they also wanted to win,” Sesane told Farpost.
“But it happened, they won [Pirates], so we will work hard going forward.”
“I was not proving a point; I was playing the football that I know only,” he declared.
“If they [Pirates] call me back then I will go, But for now, my focus is with my team [All Stars].”
Marumo Gallants put on a gallant performance against Al-Akhdar.
Marumo Gallants continued with their winning ways in the CAF Confederations Cup with a 4-1 drubbing of Libyan side, Al-Akhdar yesterday in their opening group stage match.
Former Kaizer Chiefs attacker, Joseph Malongoane was amongst the scorers, with the other goals coming from Ranga Chivaviro (brave), and Lesiba Nku.
Gallant’s win follows their 3-1 Nedbank Cup triumph over Magesi. Suddenly they have found their scoring boots since Dan Malesela was put on leave.
Hopefully they can transfer their recent form to where it matters most, the league.
It is just not Tinkler’s season, as Cape Town City bow out of the Nedbank Cup.
Eric Tinkler’s woes continued after Cape Town City were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup, 4-3 on penalties by a motivated Royal AM.
Despite throwing everything at the Durban side, Tinkler’s men could not a breakthrough, with the game ending 0-0 after 120 minutes of football.
City will have to accept that this season is not theirs, as even chances of African football look slim with their league performances not giving much of finishing among the top three.
