This week’s soc­cer buzz

Sunday Times - - Sport Soccer -

● Kaizer Chiefs fans went from a feel­ing of ec­stasy when the news of the sack­ing of Gio­vanni Soli­nas fil­tered through to their ears only to go to total de­pres­sion within two hours af­ter Amakhosi an­nounced Ernst Mid­den­dorp, bet­ter known as Mazinyo, as a re­place­ment for the bum­bling Ital­ian. So­cial me­dia went berserk with Chiefs fans call­ing their man­age­ment to re­view their de­ci­sion as Mid­den­dorp, who did some huge de­struc­tion at Chiefs be­fore, was never in their wildest of dreams as some­one any bet­ter than Soli­nas.

● Tsamaya was so heart­bro­ken with the con­duct of Amakhosi leg­ends Doctor Khu­malo and Neil Tovey, who hid be­hind the walls like first-year school kids at the launch of Kwamahlobo Fes­tive Games in Soweto this week. Sur­rounded by hun­gry for-scoop soc­cer scribes who longed for their views on Bafana Bafana and their be­lea­guered for­mer club, the duo sim­ply shrugged off all those ques­tions, say­ing they were in the event to only talk about the am­a­teur tour­na­ment. Come on now guys, you can­not deprive us of drink­ing from your font of wis­dom when we so des­per­ately need it!
