Pitso Mosimane Responds Sharply to Sead Ramovic After Sibusiso Vilakazi Departure
- The fallout over Sibusiso Vilakazi's sudden departure from TS Galaxy is still being felt
- It appears that Vilakazi and coach Sead Ramovic did not see eye to eye, which led to the former Bafana Bafana player leaving the Mpumalanga-based club
- Pitso Mosimane, who coached him at Mamelodi Sundowns, hit back at Ramovic in response to what the Serb said about him
No bad words against Sibusiso Vilakazi shall prosper as long as Pitso Mosimane is interested.
The current Al Ahli Saudi coach waded into the furore that has ensued following Sibusiso Vilakazi's sudden and controversial departure from TS Galaxy.
Defending his former player at Mamelodi Sundowns following Galaxy coach Sead Ramovic's stinging criticism, Mosimane said on Twitter:
"@Velile_Mnyandu I am dumbfounded by the tone of this interview. I trained @ValdezIsComin24 for many years competitively and consistently for +6 years, A true professional (on &off ) who respects the game and Coaches. Knows sports science and game tactics, opinionated too.

"@ValdezIsComin24 was also Coach in my dressing room and inside the pitch.One of the players who kept the dressing room quiet but spoke football tactics all the time. He lead the Football conditioning training sessions which are usually very tough. A critic to his game"
"Mosimane left because of pressure"
It just never ends when it comes to Pitso Mosimane and his former club Al Ahly SC in Egypt.
The South African, who resigned suddenly from the head coaching job at the Cairo-based club last June, was hounded out of the job even if he had a section of the fanbase behind him.
The latest furore is that of a comment Hossam Ghaly made by a legend of the club, who is now part of the technical team.
Mosimane attacked by fans
Imagine losing a match as a coach for the first time in four months since taking over and some already demanding for your head.
Pitso Mosimane is one such person, having to deal with a minor but loudly irate section of the Al Ahli Saudi fanbase. His side was thumped 4-1 by Al Akhdoud in a Saudi First Division League match a couple of weeks ago, which saw him apologise for the embarrassing nature of the loss.
While it was accepted on the whole by the reasonable ones, there was a significant overreaction among certain sections of the club's supporters.
