UK paper calls Rakhale's showboating 'nonsense'

11 March 2016, 13:29

Cape Town - An English newspaper has thrown criticism at Orlando Pirates midfielder Thabo Rakhale's showboating.

The Absa Premiership is known for the odd player to display a few seconds of showboating on the field of play.

Last year, Eric Tinkler backed his players, saying that given the space and time a player should express himself freely in whichever manner.

Rakhale is one of many players in the PSL to “showboat” and showcase a trick or two. He did no different in a Nedbank Cup fixture against archrivals Kaizer Chiefs.  

"For a lesson in the art of this glorious pointlessness, check out the clip above, from Orlando Pirates," said Richard Innes of The Mirror.

The 25-year-old took the opportunity to please the crowd at the FNB Stadium as the Buccaneers were 2-0 up courtesy of Tendai Ndoro.

"If you're anything like us, you will be delighted by his wonderfully pointless display of nonsense," the journalist wrote.
