Jimmy Augousti, Bloemfontein Celtic boss, has applauded Masokolara, the side's fans, for their continued support for the team, saying their attitude was good for South African football.

Speaking to Sowetan from Cyprus, where he is talking to local clubs to engage them in an exchange programme, Augousti emphasised that good support at the stadiums will benefit the country when it hosts the World Cup in 2010.

"I felt proud to be the chairman of Celtic when I watched our match against Kaizer Chiefs in Bloemfontein last Wednesday on DStv here in Cyprus.

"I was not only excited about the crowd, but also about the atmosphere at the stadium. I watched them singing and dancing throughout the match and I wished I was part of our supporters at the stadium," said Augousti.

"The people I was with here were also highly impressed. The majority of them can't wait to come to South Africa for the World Cup."

Masokolara also created an exciting environment at Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu when Celtic played AmaZulu on Sunday.

Phunya Sele Sele walloped Chiefs 2-0 and Usuthu 3-1.

Added Augousti: "I have confidence in our technical staff and the players and I will be happy if we can finish in fifth position on the log."
