However, his teammates, Zitha Kwinika and George Matlou, are standing by his side, emphasizing his resilience and capabilities.

The Mistake Brandon Petersen Made

In a crucial MTN8 semi-final second leg clash against Mamelodi Sundowns, Petersen found himself in a challenging situation.

Peter Shalulile pressured him, blocking his shot, and the ball fortuitously fell to Shalulile, who went on to score the fastest goal in MTN8 history.

This setback, coupled with a previous error in a league match against Sundowns, where the ball slipped through Petersen’s fingers, has led to criticism from fans and pundits alike.

Teammates’ Support

Kwinika and Matlou, speaking at a press conference held at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, made it clear that they have faith in their goalkeeper.
