"Right now, the players had their breakfast this morning as they wait to hear what’s going to happen, because it will be impossible for them to travel without their documents.”

Muthi rumours caused MTN8 fight
Some rather sensational allegations have emerged in the wake of the MTN8 final last Saturday in Durban, Sports Brief has reported.
Unnamed personnel from Orlando Pirates and AmaZulu got into a heated confrontation in the bowels of the Moses Mabhida Stadium. It is alleged - without proof or second-hand information - that muthi was at the centre of the fight.
