Themba ‘Mshishi’ Zwane, a player in South Africa, felt the need to apologise to an opponent after completing destroying him with a filthy bit of skill.
Zwane was part of the Mamelodi Sundowns side that claimed a 2-0 win over Polokwane City on Tuesday and has become a viral sensation courtesy of his jaw-dropping piece of play down the flank.
Fed down the channel but quickly closed down by Sibusiso Mbonani as he looked to advance in the area, the 28-year old produced an unreal ‘shibobo’ through his legs and left him in a heap on the turf.
Mbonani went sliding across the pitch and ended up with his head on the grass. Breaking ankles is one thing, but breaking necks with sexy skills is another. It’s just utterly outrageous from Zwane – the man has a family after all and he’s just provided the most devastating humiliation.
Only when you see the final close-up angle do you fully appreciate the ridiculous ruining that has taken place.
Zwane, who won man of the match in the game, said he was disappointed with his final ball following the move and that he apologised to his victim.
“I saw that he (Mbonani) was coming with speed and power while the ball was rolling towards my direction,” Zwane told the official Sundowns website, via IOL.
“I decided to just put the ball in between his legs and I gave him a shibobo. But I wasn’t happy with my final pass to Lebohang Maboe after that move.
“I apologised to Mbonani after the game, but he told me that he would get me in the second round.”
