Football has changed in the past few months and we have seen what has been happening since it returned. Playing behind closed doors has been a norm all over the world, some league have also used artificial fans as a substitute as no fans are allowed to come to the stadium.
Mamelodi Sundowns will return to the field of play on the 8 of August in a Nedbank Cup clash and it is a tough pill to swallow as our twelfth man will not be able to be at the stadium and rally behind the boys. This was echoed by Captain Hlompho Kekana when we said that ” It is going to be difficult and we won’t cope playing without the fans”.
The atmosphere that the fans bring during game day is always electrifying. The beating of the drums and dancing with the fans after the game is always a scene that creates a mood and it is heartbreaking that it will not be there as we resume football but the boys are aware of what is at stake.
“We going to represent the fans very well as their absence will be felt and we must make sure that every game we play we play for the supporters so that they can feel our presence” concluded Kekana.
