Limpopo MEC for Sport, Arts and culture Thandi Moraka has told Absa Premiership Club Black Leopards to pull their socks if they want to retain their top flight status.
Moraka paid a visit to Lidoda Duvha and Baroka on Thursday, ahead of their departure to the offer a word of encouragement.
Both clubs, as well as their neighbors Polokwane City are fighting for survival and will know their fate in the last remaining 6 matches.
“Our people love this team and we don’t want to see this team relegated from the PSL,” said Moraka as she addressed the players in Polokwane.
“So the message from the Provincial government is to say to you, please you need to up your game as Black Leopards. We know that you can do it, the position that you are at now is something that can be worked on and you can improve on your league log position.
“We know that you are at the bottom of the log and we don’t want to see you there. You can do it, you have done it before and we are saying please go and represent the Province of Limpopo with pride.” Added Moraka.
MEC Moraka also donated hand sanitizers and face masks to both Baroka and Leopards.
Following the departure of coach Alan Clark, former captain and current MultiChoice Diski Challenge (MDC) coach, Mongezi Bobe and Morgan Shivambu will be the co-coaches for the remainder of the season.
