- EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu took to social media to share his disappointment in a trending Orlando Pirates fan
- The fan was videoed supporting Al Ahly and cheering them on while watching TV and this left Shivambu disgusted
- The EFF comrade called for Orlando Pirates to distance themselves from the fan who was not cheering for the 'right' team
Floyd Shivambu, the EFF's deputy leader, criticised an Orlando Pirates fan who was celebrating an Al Ahly goal against Kaizer Chiefs, saying the club should distance itself from him.
Before Al Ahly scored a goal in the CAF Champions League final, a Buccaneers fan could be seen and heard chanting in a foreign language, impersonating Arabic, in a video posted online.
“What do you call this now? Orlando Pirates must distance itself from people like this... Football didn’t end yesterday and we won’t forget," said Shivambu responding to the footage.
