Bloemfontein Celtic have confirmed that the club’s management, technical team and players will hold an urgent meeting this morning in ‘an effort to thrash out issues that might be affecting the players and technical team’.
Celtic were beaten 1-0 by Mamelodi Sundowns at Free State Stadium on Sunday and following the confusion that led to the goal, Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb was seen fighting with Wandisile Letlabika, whose back pass to Tignyemb was intercepted and resulted in Elias Pelembe scoring for the visitors.
Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala has released a statement confirming that there will be a meeting this morning and also apologies to the Siwelele fans for the loss.
“As the game ended, I personally went to the supporters together with the players and management to apologise for the loss,” he wrote. “We lost as a team and no individuals were responsible for the defeat.
“In a match, mistakes can work for you or against you, today, we were on the receiving end. When I took over this team I said that our supporters deserve better and they should not celebrate mediocrity. I understand their pain and promise our fans and followers that we will do better.”
The defeat has left Celtic in 11th place on the standings, with just one victory in their six league encounters thus far this season.
