Just In| PSL "Bad Boy" Told To Pack Up and Go By Top Premier Soccer League Club

The Premier Soccer League has in recent years continue to advance and has become the best league in Africa and is amongst the top ones on the world. The level of professionalism within the clubs and players has also improved, the referee department can however do with some work as there have been major complains about how local referees give preference to some teams.

The teams have also been working hard to get rid of the so called "bad boys" in the football circles, those whose lifestyles off the field are more dominant than their on-field games.

One such player is Thamsanqa Gabuza, who was branded the ultimate "Bad Boy" He has since tried to clean up his act.

[Gabuza can tell you himself.] After he misbehaved, he was called to my office. I told him ‘you are out of my club, you are out’. He is now doing well for himself on the field and has never misbehaved again.

“We are a brand that stands for our image and [strives for] excellence. We would rather finish fourth or fi ft h every sea[1]son than finish third and have people who drink, womanise, sleep too little and do all sort of funny things that are not within our value system.”

Gabuza, 34, seemed to have revitalised himself at the Tshwane side soon after he joined Matsatsantsa from Orlando Pirates in 2019. last year, his off-the-field antics returned when he broke lockdown regulations and was arrested for speeding.

In 2018 while at Pirates, Gabuza dramatically threw his shirt at the crowd and walked off the pitch as he celebrated scoring against Black Leopards. His cheeky behaviour was prompted by the hostile reception he had been receiving from the Bucs faithful amid the general perception that he was no longer a regular scorer.

The behaviour angered then-coach Milutin Sredojević as the striker had also made rude hand gestures towards the crowd. He later apologised.
