Injured Mmethi walks down the aisle

Bloemfontein Celtic’s injured winger, Soul Mmethi, has taken time out of his recovery programme to marry the girl of his dreams.
The weekend’s proceedings were a two-stage event that started off in Bushbuckridge and ended in Giyani.
Mmethi, who is currently sidelined with a long-term knee injury, is only expected back in action next year and in going down the aisle, he is following in the footsteps of teammate Patrick Malokase, who also tied the knot two weeks ago.
“The wedding on Saturday went well. We started off at my wife’s place, before moving over to Giyani. It is a good feeling to know that I am now a married man. I am not currently playing, so it is great to be back at home.
“We will not be going on honeymoon anytime soon as I now have to begin working towards my recovery. I will think about the honeymoon closer to the off-season,” says Mmethi.
“What also feels good now is that the younger players in the team will view us as role models whom they can look up to both on and off the field.”
Mmethi’s teammates were unable to attend his wedding as they were involved in the Moqhaka Cup, however, the 28-year-old says that he will catch up with them soon as he is travelling back to Bloemfontein on Wednesday.
