MaMkhize Blasts SuperSport United After Royal AM Goalkeeper Sustained Life-threatening Injury. Shauwn “MaMkhize” Mkhize, the owner of Royal AM, has broken her silence following the critical injury sustained by the team’s goalkeeper Patrick Hugo Nyame, who has spent the last few days in a coma following a clash with SuperSport United this week.
Nyame suffered a head injury in the 94th minute of the game after colliding with Matsatsantsa striker Bradley Grobler. Royal AM was defeated 3-1 at Pretoria’s Atteridgeville Stadium.
Taking to Instagram, MaMkhize revealed that Nyame had suffered a “life-threatening head injury”.
She shared: “While it may have looked like a minor incident on TV, it was a severe concussion that affected his head/brain, he was in the ICU and in a coma for two days.”
“You know, one wakes up in the morning excited to go support their team, and then the worst thing happens. We had to make a life-changing decision in order to save our keepers life.
“What’s difficult is that you still have to be strong for the rest of the team and tell everyone that everything is going to be okay even if you are not sure. Sbahle’s accident really taught me a lot on how to handle a situation like this”
While MaMkhize was relieved that the Royal AM player was on the mend, she was also disappointed and irritated that SuperSport United had not contacted the player or the team.
She shared: “I am, however, disappointed that not a single person from the opposing team has picked up the phone or sent a message to check on his condition. What happened to sportsmanship? I guess we are not the same”.
