Dlamini in trouble for ball boy incident

Posted: 20 August 2018 Time: 18:30

Baroka CEO Morgan Mammila says the club will punish goalkeeper Ayanda Dlamini for lashing out at a ball boy during the club's 2-0 loss to Polokwane City on the weekend.

With Bakgaga trailing Rise and Shine in the Limpopo derby, a frustrated Dlamini was seen throwing a ball at a ball boy behind his goal at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

He earned a yellow card for his actions and faces further disciplinary action from his employers.

"You know in life in everything you do you need some professionalism," Mammila tells


"You know you must live with professionalism; you must not leave professionalism at home when you go out. You must carry it wherever you go. Surely the team is not happy with that and we will deal with him. We will surely deal with him. This is not us, this is not Baroka's way surely. He did apologise to the team in the dressing room, I was there. But surely we will take him on, we can't allow such behaviour, that's unsporting behaviour.

"He said he was frustrated because the boy was playing him, he was not giving him the ball as quick as he can. But remember these ball boys are being taught by their home teams obviously. But you must remain professional you know at all times. No matter whether you lose or you win. Whatever that you do, you are doing it for the badge of Baroka FC. We can't only take the good things, but if you do bad things in our name then we'll take you on. All what we want is professionalism, sportsmanship, that's what we want. You win some, you lose some."

Baroka last season fired their captain Olaleng Shaku, head coach Kgoloko Thobejane and Puskas Award nominee Oscarine Masuluke for allegedly drinking on the team bus.
