Just when you think football has reached it’s vacuous nadir with the Wembley ‘dab cam’, you witness two players actually going out of their way to toss out a couple of ‘dabs’ mid-match – not as goal celebrations, but during actual, proper open play.
Presumably passing for “skill” on the South African domestic scene, Free State Stars duo Langelihle Ndlovu and Pule Mmodi both performed the Paul Pogba-approved dance step in the latter stages of their recent Diski Challenge game against Platinum Stars.
It’s as cringe-inducing as it sounds…
They’ve done it. They’ve actually gone and found something even more pointless than the ‘no-look pass’.
Of course, there is a culture of show-boating in South African football that the locals revel in and refer to as “Kasi flavour”.
Personally, we find it utterly f**king detestable.
