Rulani Mokwena Finally Makes Honest ‘Confession’ Concerning Jibes From Sead Ramovic and Gavin Hunt
- Rulani Mokwena has reacted to the constant 'attack' from rival coaches in the PSL
- The Sundowns coach was recently 'attacked by TS Galaxy manager Sead Ramovic
- SuperSport United manager Gavin Hunt also threw a subtle jibe at the young tactician
Mamelodi Sundowns manager Rulani Mokwena has reacted to the recent jibes from Premier Soccer League rival managers Sead Ramovic and Gavin Hunt.
TS Galaxy coach Ramovic was the first to attack the Brazilians' manager for finding an excuse after his team was knocked out of the Carling Knockout Cup.
Hunt, on the other hand, threw a subtle jibe at Mokwena for hugging his players after Sundowns defeated SuperSport United in the DStv Premiership.
Mokwena, in an interview ahead of his team's CAF Champions League Pyramids, has claimed that he is affected by the constant attacks by his rival coaches in the league, according to a report by iDiskiTimes.
"They do [affect me], I do not respond, it is part of the territory I suppose, but someone said something very interesting to me the other day," he said.
"A friend of mine was more emotional about one of the jabs than I was, and then I pushed it aside, and he said yeah it is true because he said ‘shade that comes from a tree that bares no fruit, doesn’t matter’… and believe me… actually no [I will not say more]."
The South African tactician in Sundowns' last game in the DStv Premiership claimed he is not permitted to hug his players despite top performance in the game.
