Fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the Gauteng Derby and some compared Tyson with the Amakhosi defender
Mamelodi Sundowns humiliated Orlando Pirates for the second time this season when they secured an emphatic 3-0 victory in a blockbuster PSL clash at Orlando Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
It is Bucs’ heaviest home defeat in the league since February 2012 when they were thrashed 3-0 by Swallows FC in the original Soweto Derby match at Orlando Stadium with Bennett Chenene, Mpho Maleka and Katlego Mashego all scoring for the Beautiful Birds.
This time, second-half goals from Ricardo Nascimento, Peter Shalulile and Lyle Lakay inspired Sundowns to an impressive win over the Buccaneers, who also lost 4-1 to Masandawana in the Nedbank Cup quarter-final match in Tshwane on April 15.
Many unhappy Pirates fans took to social media to express their dissatisfaction regarding their team’s performance and some slammed Thulani ‘Tyson’ Hlatshwayo with the experienced defender being compared with Kaizer Chiefs centre-back Daniel Cardoso
Here is how Twitter reacted to Pirates’ embarrassing defeat:
We have Cardoso and they have Hlatshwayo, spoilers.😭😂 pic.twitter.com/F3UESgzsE4

#Pirates are down 3-0 here in the 5th and have action in the bullpen, but Will Crowe is allowed to bat despite being at 97 pitches. He draws a walk, reaching base for a second time in as many plate appearances.

My brother I didn’t watch pirates game as I was driving to Durban. 3-0 lost Sundowns is calamity. Khoza must look for coach next season.

Solve for Pirates:
4 minus 1 = ?
4 – 1 = 3
3 – 0 = ?

What sundowns has done to fadlu and his German friend is wrong .
2nd January 2021 : sundowns went defensive and pirates were all attack sundowns won 1-0
15th April 2021 : sundowns goes pound to pound . They get 4-1
02 May 2021 : Gives sundowns possession and defense . 3-0
