Bloemfontein Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tingnyemb admitted to wasting time on purpose following their goalless stalemate with Chippa United at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Chilli Boys pressed hard and looked lively as they went in search of a winning goal, particularly in the last 15 minutes, putting Celtic defenders under pressure. But the Celtic keeper kept on going down, faking an injury to kill the momentum of the game, it seems.

“I have minor injury, but sometimes you must kill time, it is very important. Away from home, you have to manage everything and at least get something from the match, especially playing a good team like Chippa,” the Celtic keeper told SuperSport after the match.

“I’m disappointed that we see the same shenanigans we saw last week, when are people going to see football?… Is it tactics, so people should watch people sitting down? It is wrong, what tactics are those? … it must be corrected, and coaches must stop doing this. Because people want to watch football, they paid to watch football.”
