Economic Freedom Fighters’ deputy leader Floyd Shivambu has taken a dig at Orlando Pirates after Kaizer Chiefs failed to win the CAF Champions League.
Shivambu who’s a vocal Kaizer Chiefs fan has called out Orlando Pirates fans who taunt his club with their ’26-year-old star’ via a lengthy social media thread.
The Amakhosi blew a golden chance to settle the scores in South African football when they lost against Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League final last month.
While Kaizer Chiefs have won the most trophies in the country, one trophy which has eluded them over the years is that of the CAF Champions League title.
Both Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates have won the elite competition in the past however according to Shivambu, the Buccaneers’ star has expired given the fact that it was over 25 years ago.
EFF’s Floyd Shivambu silences Orlando Pirates fans during Kaizer Chiefs troll
“They’re jealous of Kaizer Chiefs! Bragging about a star which was gained in 1995 doesn’t make sense. The next CAF & FIFA Conferences must remove stars that are more than 20 or even 10 years. A whole generation passed yet they still brag about a 26-year old star? Amakhosi4Life!” EFF’s Floyd Shivambu said via his Twitter account.
“We are tired of being abused by Pirates supporters who failed to win the B version of the African championship ( playing against Jwaneng Galaxy FC) when Kaizer chiefs was being harassed by serious football clubs in the continent.”
