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.
