We really don’t like honesty in this football business of ours.
Teboho Moloi having to apologise for comments he made against Kaizer Chiefs seems silly to me.
His Chippa United side lost 1-0 to Chiefs and in the post-match interview, he said: “I’m not going to complain.
“The only thing I’m going to say is that I remember in my playing days 1987-1992 when we lost against Kaizer Chiefs this is how we used to lose.”
So why is he having to apologise and in danger of a slap on the wrists from the PSL?
We are so secretive and so scared of saying anything controversial in our football, but why?
We want honesty in our post-match comments otherwise we will have coaches all saying the same boring thing for fear of being fined.
Fiery, off-the-cuff remarks are part of what makes the game exciting.
But no, we want to gag our coaches and make interviews boring too.
