Some local footballers got a rude awakening at the just ended Mascom Top 8 final in Francistown.
Zebras assistant coach and Township Rollers legend Keitumetse “Pio” Paul was ordered out of the VIP area because he didn’t have the right tag.
Pio didn’t take kindly to that and hurled a few unpalatable words to one of the ladies demanding his exit.
However Pio was not the only footballer to suffer this embarrassment.
Pontsho Moloi and Michael Mogaladi also had to explain and introduce themselves and were made to wait as their identities were confirmed.
While Yours Truly acknowledges that Top 8 is the biggest and most lucrative tournament in the country, a tournament director is needed to stop these embarrassing moments.
Legends like Mogaladi and Moloi should never be asked to introduce themselves at a football event.
