Staunch Orlando Pirates supporter Goodenough Sithole has denied ditching the club for its rival, Kaizer Chiefs, which won the Soweto Derby at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Jokes about him turning his back on Bucs circulated on social media this week after a Photoshopped picture of him wearing an Amakhosi T-shirt was shared on Twitter.

The tweep brought the picture to the attention of sportscaster Robert Marawa and captioned it: “Goodenough has crossed the floor. He now likes it for the chiefs.”

After seeing the post, Marawa quickly shared it, asking if this was really true.

He invited Goodenough to his show to clear the air.

“This is all new to me. I don't know this,” said Goodenough.

“I'll never support Chiefs. Even its supporters were no longer wearing its jersey until they beat Pirates two times, otherwise they wore it as pyjamas and even used it as a floor mat.”

He said Pirates' win was no big deal as they didn't win the cup.

Asked if he knew the man in the Kaizer Chiefs jersey, he said someone “drew a spitting image of me”.

“We must call the artist who did that drawing.” he concluded.
