Mzansi’s favourite football mascot is making us all feel proudly South African!


Johannesburg, South Africa (04 July 2022) – A young South African has garnered over 1.1 million views with his “locker-room” war cry, and it’s giving us all the feels!

The video was originally filmed in 2017 when the Kaizer Chiefs took on the Orlando Pirates, but DJ Jazzy D recently reshared the video with his 277,000 followers, which has helped the post go viral. At the time Mateo Manousakis was just 7 years old but he was – and is still – proudly South African and incredibly passionate about soccer!

The video has been watched over 1,1 million times and had over 1,800 comments.

“And here is a perfect example of what we as South Africans could be if we start putting these stupid differences and race issues aside!! This is what most of us want. Peace, harmony, loving each other regardless of colour and just being the best humans we can be and PROUDLY South Africans!! This warms my heart.” – Martin Vorster 

“Before being proud of the Legend there. Let’s be proud of his family they are the ones that deserve all the Glory.” – Jason Mazunga
