Kaizer Chiefs supporters will be left with little to celebrate on Saturday after the team failed to secure the ABSA Premiership Championship.
The team had been showing immense promise but fumbled against Baroka with the Mamelodi Sundowns emerging as champions instead.
Fans took to social media to lament the loss which has not gone down well with Mzansi, especially after #PrayforKaizerChiefs trended earlier in the day.
From people feeling embarrassed to bitter disappointment, the face-off has ended in tears for the immensely popular team.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Pitso Mosimane weighed in on the victory saying that it is undeniably an emotional moment for him:
"Of course, very emotional. It was difficult because we never had a chance. The boys have some character and they play every week. I'm too demanding, some run away because I'm too much for them. I'm very emotional about this one."
The coach revealed that the journey leading up to this moment had been extremely difficult for both the team and himself personally.
Commenting on the situation following the win, Mosimane said there had been plenty of doubt along the way:
"A lot of people didn't believe, only the yellow nation who come here every time those are the people that support us. I must thank my family, they were there with me through difficult times. We had a lot of pressure both outside and internal in the club, to be honest, people doubting me, but God is there for me. These boys made it possible for me to look back at those people and say 'what do you have to say now?'"
Take a look at just a few of the thousands of reactions to the loss below:
