Belly Critic

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) domestic transfer window closed last Wednesday at 24:00.

But there is one worrying and recurring theme in the PSL, season after season.

The very same players who tell us soccer fans that their hearts are with the club, that their loyalties are with the club and that we fans are always the most important people, jumped on the merry-go-round.

Watching the movement of players in the last days before the window closed, I was left convinced that there is no loyalty in football anymore.

These players move from one team to another.

Yet when a player scores goals or wins cups, he kisses his team’s badge, reaffirming to us as soccer fans that his loyalty lies with his current team.

Yet when a new club with new colours and new fans comes knocking with a better salary offer, he is quick to change allegiance.

Who would have thought that Kaizer Chiefs diehards like Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Tefu Mashamaite will change their allegiance to SuperSport United?

Players must stop fooling around with supporters. There is an outcry that our stadiums are always empty, but which soccer fan will waste his last cents to go and watch players who are not loyal?

Then you get soccer fans who are present at each and every home match.

They spend their hard-earned money to attend for the love of the game. These fans never switch clubs, colours or allegiances.

They are Amakhosi for life, Sundowns for life or Bucs for life, and so on.

There is no more loyalty in football anymore.

Soon we will see supporters swapping teams.
