Wolff sees red after two touches


Making only his second PSL appearance, Wolff says he was shocked when referee Carl Theron showed him a straight red just six minutes into the game for a tackle on BidVest Wits’ David Radebe.

“I didn’t even realise that we had only played just six minutes; I thought it was at least 30. It was only when I got to the stands and my teammates began teasing me that I realised it was so early.

“To be honest, I just wanted to scare David early in the match. I found the referee’s decision a bit harsh to accept because I didn’t even do any harm to David. My boot went into the ground, not the man,” says the 19-year-old defender.

A graduate from the Harmony Sports Academy, Wolff says he was completely confused while making his way to the change room.

“I didn’t even know whether to take a shower or not because I hadn’t even put on a sweat. Before I was sent off I had touched the ball twice, once when I passed to Ntokozo; my other touch was a header.

“The coach didn’t say anything to me because I didn’t go to the dressing room at half-time. After the match I just sat alone at the back of the bus because I wasn’t in the mood to talk to anyone.

“However, since returning to training this week I have received positive support from the coach and my team mates. They tell me that it is all part of the game and then tease me about setting a record,” he tells Kick Off.
