Sanoka apologises to TS Galaxy supporters

Pogiso Sanoka has shown why he has been tasked with the responsibility of leadership at TS Galaxy FC in the absence of the injured Given Msimango.

The centre-back committed a blunder against Stellenbosch FC at Danie Craven Stadium and was sent off in the 7th minute.

A few days after his blunder, Sanoka came out and apologised to the supporters of TS Galaxy for his conduct on Wednesday afternoon.

The Rockets succumbed to a 1-0 defeat. The solitary strike by Ashley Du Preez was the difference on the day.

“I feel I should have dealt better with the situation. As a leader, I should have been calm under the situation. I should have dealt with it better. Everything happened so quickly and I didn’t have much time to think and I used my emotions,” an emotional Sanoka elaborated.

“It was one of those days where you don’t get what you want. No one wants to get a red card. To our supporters at home, I’m deeply sorry for what happened. Next time, I’ll deal with these kinds of situations better.”

Sanoka will miss the next two DStv Premiership matches. He will be serving his two-match suspension against Lamontville Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns.

“The understanding is now there. All we have to do is not to be complacent. I should have treated the Stellenbosch game the very same way I approached the Chiefs game.

I have faith in my teammates. I know that they will do the job in the next two games. From my side, I’m disappointed and looking forward to doing things better.” Sanoka explained.

The Rockets won’t be in action for the next two weeks because of the upcoming Fifa break.

After two league outings, the club has amassed one out of possible six points. We shared the spoils with Kaizer Chiefs in our opening match of the season. The game ended in a 0-0 stalemate.
