Supersport United chairperson Khulu Sibiya was lucky to escape unharmed after an attempted hijacking in Johannesburg at the weekend.
The Pretoria club boss was accosted by two armed men in his car in his driveway.
Sibiya told the Sunday World tabloid that he had gone to buy snacks for a handyman who was fixing his DStv installation at his home.
“I told them that if they are so desperate to get something they have not worked hard for, then they must shoot me because I was not going to open the door,” Sibiya told the newspaper.
“The criminals stood outside my car shouting at me to get out. You should have seen the anger on their faces when I refused.”
The robbers took an iPhone worth R16 000 and other items from another car parked in the driveway, the newspaper said.
Police spokesperson Captain Molefe Mogodi confirmed the Bramley police were investigating a case of armed robbery.
He said no arrest had been made.
