A player’s age is always a sensitive topic in South African football, and Orlando Pirates didn’t help when they not only got Innocent Maela’s actual birthday date wrong, but his age too! Did you see what happened?
The Buccaneers took to their social media platforms earlier today to wish the fullback a happy birthday, only for the post to be removed shortly afterwards.
They then responded with another graphic to apologise for wishing him on the wrong day, and for saying he was 32 and not 25 years old.
Naturally, this sparked an onslaught of response from Buccaneers fans, and, needless to say, they weren’t too impressed.
