DRUM - - Ed's Note -

I’m un­happy about the man­ner in which Su­perS­port United is treated in the Caf Con­fed­er­a­tion Cup. The team is get­ting lit­tle to no me­dia at­ten­tion, and less moral sup­port from sport­ing bod­ies, of­fi­cials and the coun­try at large. De­spite their achieve­ment of reach­ing the fi­nal of this pres­ti­gious con­ti­nen­tal show­piece.

When Or­lando Pi­rates par­tic­i­pated in the pre­vi­ous con­ti­nen­tal edi­tions, it was said they were putting the whole coun­try on the map.

The type of sup­port that was ex­tended to Pi­rates which saw them reach the fi­nals should also be given to Mat­sat­santsa a Pi­tori.

Su­perS­port and Pi­rates are South African teams and their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the con­ti­nen­tal show­piece is a grand rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the whole coun­try.

Su­perS­port needs the back­ing of all cit­i­zens so the team can have that sense of na­tional duty that will mo­ti­vate them to do well.

I urge all com­pa­tri­ots to rally be­hind the team and help them bring the tro­phy home for the pride of the na­tion. Let equal treat­ment reign. MALPHIA HONWANE, GOTTENBURG EMANYELETI
