Tim Spirit: Open letter to Safa’s Tankiso Modipa

Opinion: Attacks on new Bucs coach Riveiro are harsh, biased and unfair

The dust is now settling since the appointment of José Riveiro as the head coach of the institution that is Orlando Pirates. I expect the fans to use banter with each other, but it is the behaviour of football journalists around this appointment that has me worried.

Opinion – 30 years on: SA’s mixed fortunes in world football

A sunny Friday morning in Sonnenberg in Zürich, Switzerland, heralded a new football order in the southern tip of Africa. Like nothing else before in the entire history of soccer in South Africa, readmission into the Fifa football family on July 3 1992 was quite historical.

At least Orlando Pirates’ new coach José Riveiro is off to a solid start, with Bucs chairperson Irvin Khoza defending the little-known Spaniard from critics.

Afcon features continent’s finest in Kgatlana and Oshoala

In February, the continent marvelled at the rivalry between Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah as the then two Liverpool stars joined their countries, Senegal and Egypt, respectively, to face off in the Afcon final in Cameroon. The Women’s Africa Cup of Nations has its own version of the rivalry: Banyana Banyana star Thembi Kgatlana versus Super Falcons’ Asisat Oshoala.

The senior women’s national cricket team, the Proteas Women, have given their fancied hosts England something to think about ahead of the limited-overs leg of the all-format English tour.

It was only a matter of time

With his first 200m in fewer than 20 seconds coming just six weeks shy of his 26th birthday, it’s safe to say Luxolo Adams has flown under the radar in sprinting in South Africa.

Van Zyl embraces competition from foreign legion

Local runners have been left gasping for air during the past two years of the Spar Women’s Grand Prix 10km series. With two races done and four to go this year, foreign domination has again set the pace…
