Mhlongo on Chiefs 'toilet' celebration

Premiership

Swallows FC striker Joseph Mhlongo has tried to explain his goal celebration against Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday night.

The former Black Leopards forward scored the only goal of the DStv Premiership encounter to hand his new team a 1-0 victory over Amakhosi.

But it was the celebration of 'Black Jesus' that stole the show as it left people talking and trying to figure out its meaning.

After scoring from a Lebohang Mokoena cross, Mhlongo ran to celebrate with his hand placed on his buttocks like someone who urgently needed to go to the toilet.

Asked about the meaning behind the celebration, Mhlongo did not want to reveal too much except to explain where it came from.

"Just childhood memories, nothing more [laughs]," Mhlongo tells KickOff.com.

"It was one of our celebrations when we were growing up. More like a team celebration, so it got stuck with me over the years."

Mhlongo, who was playing his first game for the Dube Birds since joining due an ankle injury, explains how he scored the goal.

"It's one of those moments where you have to put your body on the line, after a great cross by Cheese and me managing to get in front of a defender," he says.

"I was happy for the team and myself because I had just come back from an injury and it wasn't easy getting back into the team.

"Playing in a front three means when the ball is on the left, I have to be in the box, and when the ball got to Cheese the only thing I could think of was running into the box. The quality of the cross was, for me, the reason we got the goal."
