Phala attracts overseas interest

Portugal, Israel interest in Platinum Stars winger Thuso Phala

Posted: 15 January 2013 Time: 03:15 pm

Thuso Phala’s performances for Bafana Bafana against Norway and Algeria have not only alerted some local clubs; it has led to interest from overseas.

The Platinum Stars winger is part of Gordon Igesund’s Africa Cup of Nations squad, and he produced a Man of the Match display in a warm-up match against the Norwegians in Cape Town on January 8.

Some media reports suggest that Phala could be heading back to Kaizer Chiefs, but his agent, Tim Sukazi, tells KickOff.com they have not had any contact with Amakhosi.

“There has been no contact over Phala. If there is any we will have a look of course, but as it stands he is 100 per cent focused on the Nations Cup.

“After the tournament we will see where we stand, but already there has been interest from overseas. A club in Israel has contacted us, while this morning I received a call from someone in Portugal.”

That was totally unproffesional Dawana, those guys payed their hard earned money to go to the stadium and support the team. Ryan can't call them IDIOTS for expressing their feelings, they did nothing wrong, they didn't violate any South African law or whatsoever. Ryan is not more important than those guys and Ryan can't tell people to come to the stadiums or not.

I wonder how the editor even allowed that article to be published.
Real Madrid fans jeered Mou who won them the league with a record points but they were never called idiots. Brazilian fans booed their players when they were winning 1-0 against Gordon 11 but they were never called idiots. Pirates do the same.
It is only here in South Africa where fans are not respected and valued.

Please apologise Mr Ryan Cooper or should i ask kickoff to apologise on your behalf.
