The German manager fired new shots at the Masandawana boss and his team after Sundowns and Galaxy drew 1-1 at the Mbombela Stadium in a DStv Premiership game on May 21.

Puso Dithejane gave the Rockets the lead in the second half, but Peter Shalulile grabbed a late equaliser to preserve the Brazilians' unbeaten run, Soccer Laduma reported.

Ramovic trolls Sundowns over spending power

Speaking after the encounter, the Galaxy boss stated that the draw proved that one didn’t always win with ‘million-dollar players’ but that having players with a 'million-dollar' attitude made the difference.

The jibe was in direct reference to Sundowns spending a lot of money on star players, with many saying they have bought their success over the years.

Ramovic didn’t end there. He added that they dominated the whole game and when comparing the financial power between his side and other teams, they proved that 'this was hard work, coaching and quality, and this is the highest education as a coach'.

“If they want to beat us again, maybe they should buy [Kylian] Mbappe, [Cristiano] Ronaldo, and [Lionel] Messi. Maybe then he has a bigger chance. If not, then he has to take the highest education, because this is what he doesn’t have,” Ramovic added.

TS Galaxy take Mokwena to court

Sports Brief also reported that the bad blood between Galaxy and Sundowns had escalated in recent weeks and was now heading to court.

Tim Sukazi's side approached the Johannesburg High Court after Mokwena made defamatory comments about their side following a game.

TS Galaxy demanded that Mokwena apologise or provide proof for his comments and took him to court when he refused to say sorry.
