WHILE some have stuck their necks out long before Saturday, predicting the demise of Jomo Cosmos, it still was a heartbreaking moment when the players burst into tears after the referee had blown his final whistle.
Ezinkosi were sent packing from the elite Absa Premiership and back to the National First Division just eight months after promotion.
Truth be told, Cosmos' campaign this season has been disastrous - they won just four of their 30 matches, amassing a total of just 24 points.
That a team that has at one time was graced by the talented players such as Benjamin Mwaruwari, Anthony Laffor, Katlego Mphela and a host of former Bafana Bafana stalwarts ranging from Phil Masinga to MacBeth Sibaya shows just how desperate the times are.
As football lovers continue to ponder the future of Jomo Sono's pride and joy, the main question has been: Will they manage a come back this time around?
