“I wish to take this opportunity to congratulate the team for the magnificent effort in the attempt to win the CAF Champions League,” said Chairman Kaizer Motaung, “even if we did not win the trophy, to reach this final is historical for the Club.”
“It is unfortunate that the red card defined the outcome of the match,” said Motaung. “These kinds of defining moments happen in the games of this magnitude. I would like to thank the players and the Technical Team, not forgetting the entire support and entourage that participated in the journey to the final.”
“I want to take this special moment to encourage Happy Mashiane,” said Motaung, “Happy must take this as a lesson and an experience that will come in handy in his career. This is not his fault and this must serve as a lesson to everyone in the team. We must realise that these things happen in football and life in general. Happy is still young and has a great future ahead of him. He is not alone, we are in this together.”
“I am also quite aware that the travelling team has faced challenges to travel back home due to the flight mechanical concerns,” said the Chairman. “I wish everyone safe travel and that everything will be sorted.”
“This has been a great effort from everyone. I am appealing to all of us to understand that the journey continues from here. It is not always plain sailing in any journey but we must believe that one day we will achieve our objective. I wish you a safe journey back home,” concluded Motaung.
