Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane has retracted his earlier statement that he did not vote for Oscarine Masuluke's goal for the Puskas Awards.

Mabokgwane was earlier quoted by Power FM saying he had not voted for the goal he conceded against Baroka FC last year and this was viewed as sour grapes by many.

The Bafana Bafana goal minder says the reason for his ‘sarcastic’ response was because of the line of questioning from the Power FM reporter.

Mabokgwane posted a message on Twitter to set the record straight.

“My sarcastic response ws due to reporter’s line of questioning. I ws 1st to congratulate him and I have voted. I urge all South Africans to vote (sic),” read his tweet.
