Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana defender Eric 'Tower' Mathoho has apologised for his back-to-back red cards for club and country.
Mathoho posted a message on his Instagram account to apologise to Chiefs and Bafana fans for picking up a red card in his previous two matches which both ended in defeat to SuperSport United and Cape Verde.
After the defeat in a World Cup qualifier to Cape Verde the defender apologised to his team-mates and South Africans for letting the team down. Although he did not think his foul warranted his marching orders, he said he would learn from his mistakes.
Mathoho was also sent off after 7 minutes in his last game for Kaizer Chiefs, a mere fortnight ago.
"These are the first two red cards of my career and I’m not happy at all. But I will come back stronger and prove my worth," Mathoho said.
