Baroka FC midfielder Sipho 'Sgobe' Moeti wants his team to appeal the yellow card he received after showboating against Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout on Sunday.
Moeti got the fans going by kneeling on the ball at Peter Mokaba Stadium but picked up a caution in the process.
"I was disappointed with the yellow card. I believe the opponent was far and I was within my right to show off my skill," Moeti tells KickOff.com.
"We were off today (from training). I am going to speak to the club tomorrow and see if they can appeal against the yellow card."
Moeti believes players should be allowed to express themselves on the field and insists he will continue to entertain this season.
"Those who defend must defend. Those who pass must pass the ball. Those who have skill, let them show it," says the Soweto-born trickster.
"I grew up in Zondi. This is where I grew up entertaining fans with my skill. I am still going to do more of it as long as my team is winning and in the right places. Football fans come to the stadium for entertainment. Let's give them goals and skills on the field of play."
