Putco slams MTN Soccer Zone 01/10/03
Outspoken Kaizer Chiefs PRO Putco Mafani has hit out at popular television show MTN Soccer Zone for portraying the Phefeni Glmaour Boys in a negative light because of their multi-million rand sponsorship deal with Vodacom.

Writing in his weekly column for the official Chiefs website, Mafani alleges that the television shows highlights package favours teams sponsored by MTN, over Amakhosi and fellow Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.

Both Chiefs and the Buccaneers are sponsored by MTNs bitter corporate rivals Vodacom.

Please note that any exceptionally good highlights on the part of our game will not be highlighted as much as it would be done to MTN sponsored clubs or other clubs not necessarily sponsored by Vodacom,  moans Mafani in his column published on Tuesday.

Look at the pressure we applied on Golden Arrows (MTN) in our game in Durban. We had nine clear-cut opportunities during the second half only but they were not highlighted.

In that programme Jabulane (sic) Mendu was made 'Moemish of the Week' for a 50-50 tackle from which the referee rightfully gave him a yellow but the programme saw it fit to ignore for instance high-flying and dangerous tackles by Cosmos players on Wits players, where Roger De Sa also complained about those tackles.

The irony is that the same programme played those tackles but chose to ignore them and pick up on Mendu - Kaizer Chiefs (Vodacom) to portray us bad or negative.

Black Leopards and Golden Arrows are sponsored by MTN.

Do you agree with Putco's comments?
