Shauwn Mkhize has come out to defend her son Andile Mpisane from trolls. Mr. Chairman got dragged after his first ever match in the Premier Soccer League against Kaizer Chiefs. On Sunday, Royal AM who qualified to be a part of the PSL, won their match against Kaizer Chiefs for the Macufe Cup and had their 4-1 win. 

Trolls came in their numbers to troll the Royal AM player saying he does not know how to play soccer. 

Defending her son from trolls Shauwn said Andile has been playing soccer since he was a young kid. 

Speaking to Metro FM’s Sports Night Amplified, Shauwn defended her son and said, “You know there is one thing people don’t know about Andile, as much as he is my son, he goes to the training like every player [to be] part of the plan."

She then went on to say Andile trains just like every other player and does not get special treatment. 

“He trains with the team and I don’t know if people do understand that Andile is the one who brought me into soccer because of his love for football.”

Shauwn got humbled when Bloemfontein Celtics supporters flocked her car and told her to go away. 

This was after she bought both Bloemfontein Celtics and the female soccer club and renamed it to Royal AM and Royal AM Ladies. 

She named her daughter in law the deputy chair lady for the Royal AM Ladies soccer club. 

She also bought Bloemfontein Celtics and renamed it to Royal AM Ladies who her daughter in law Tamia Mpisane is the deputy chair lady for. 

“It’s great to see how women’s football has started to reach the radar of many South Africans,” Mkhize said. “With the increase in investment, sponsorship and development, the long term goal is to level the playing field with our male counterparts.

“Now is the time to put the spotlight on women’s football. The success of Banyana Banyana is a prime example of why we need to make even more strides in advancing its professionalism, not only in SA but on the African continent.”

Irvin Khoza defended his decision to sell the club saying it was the best decision to save people's jobs

"The main point is that the transition must be seamless, because there are a lot of stakeholders affected by this transition. There is a very important issue we discussed the future financial stability. This is a matter that faces us every day in football. 

"We want to protect the history of a club but the issue of sustainability is a problem. Regardless of our discomfort when we deal with transitions sometimes we must make sure we are doing the right thing. We must consider two things the issue of the insolvency of the club the risk of insolvency. Is somebody says I cannot afford what do you do? " asked Irvin in a press conference as quoted by Kick Off.
