SuperSport United Goalkeeper Apologises to Teammates for Crazy Red Card Against Chippa United
- SuperSport United goalkeeper has apologised to his teammates for an unnecessary red card against Chippa United
- Goss needlessly got himself sent off after punching Chippa player Ronald Pfumbidzai
- His actions were blamed on the heat of the moment, as Pfumbidzai had deliberately interfered with Goss
SuperSport United goalkeeper Ricardo Goss has apologised to his teammates after punching Chippa United's Ronald Pfumbidzai and getting sent off for his actions.
Goss had made a key save in the 91st minute from a corner when the incident occurred. Looking to release the ball quickly to catch Chippa's defenders out of position, he was about to kick the ball out of his hands when Pfumbidzai, who read the danger, impeded him with a professional foul.
This would have resulted in a yellow card for Pfumbidzai, but Goss' frustration imploded any form of common sense in his head, causing him to punch the former in his face. Naturally, the victim made the most of the situation by rolling around like he was being attacked by a swarm of bees, but Goss's unacceptable actions warranted a sending off for violent conduct.

"Ja obviously it was unfortunate, it was his first game for the club, and it's not what we wanted. But it is what it is, hopefully, he learns from that, and ill-discipline it's not what we want. But I understood where he was coming from it was in the heat of the moment and frustration at the time because we were on top of the game and thought we should be leading."
"He saw an opportunity to play the ball into a one-on-one situation and the opposition prevented him from doing that. Directly after that game in the change-room, he apologised to the entire team.
Orlando Pirates legend Jerry Skhosana blames politics and misconduct for Gabadinho Mhango's exit
Jerry Skhosana has had his say on Gabadinho Mhango's controversial departure from Orlando Pirates.
As reported by Sports Brief, Mhango was not a favourite of the current assistant coach Mandla Ncikazi and former co-coach Fadlu Davids, who decided to bench him, to much debate about its merits.
Earlier this afternoon. Mhango was on the scoresheet as Amazulu defeated SuperSport United 2-1 in a DStv Premiership match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
