The phrase "Football can kill you " almost became a reality today as its originator almost had a near death experience. This as he was on the sidelines during an MDC match against Chippa United on Sunday afternoon.
Baroka FC brought in the services of former coach Kgoloko Thobejane earlier this year, Thobejane, who coined the widely-used phrase "football can kill you", was sacked by the club in 2018 after he allegedly drank on duty.
He is the famous coach who promoted Bakgaga to the top-flight in 2016, and he will now be in charge of the club's Diski Challenge team.
Club chairman Khurushi Mphahlele at the time said that the coach's good record in developing top players was the reason he has been allowed back into the club.
During the match, the coach dropped down to the ground on his side, seemingly in disbelief of what he could have been seeing in the pitch. He had to be woken up his assistant coach, who brought him up on his knee. Baroka lost the game 0-1 to Chippa.
