- The Bongani Zungu Twitter drama has caused a lot of damage
- Sundowns coach Mosimane does not believe that he was the on who did it
- After seeing the apology, he is adamant that it was not Bongani
The response to the comments made by former midfielder, Bongani Zungu, coach Pitso Mosimane has surprised us all.
He has not come out fighting but displaying a pacifying approach to the disrespect he received from Zungu on social media.
The comments on twitter posted by Zungu, was an indication that Rulani Mokwena, former Downs assistant coach, has successfully made Orlando Pirates a team to be reckoned with. However, coach Mulutin “Micho” Sredojevic of the Buccaneers was excluded from been credited.
While at Sundowns, the French Lique1-based Amiens SC and Bafana Bafana midfielder commented that he experienced the situation, reported Sowetan Live.
Zungu won the 2015-2016 Absa Premiership title while coaching under Mosimane, which in turn earned him a transfer to Portugal’s Vitoria Guimaraes.
Briefly.co.za learnt that not long after the post, Zungu did apologise but only for the comments which were directed at Sredojevic. No apology was made for what was said concerning Mosimane.
After the game on Wednesday night between Sundowns and Free State Stars, Mosimane was asked to comment on the issue on hand.
Mosimane said that he did not want to focus on any negativity and he and Zungu share a passed together of which he has fond memories. He even referred to Zungu as his boy, and said he will not have anything to spoil what they had.
Even after all this, Mosimane still stands strong saying that if it was Zungu himself that shared the tweets, then maybe his was under pressure and simple make a mistake doing it.
As far as the apology is concerned, Mosimane is of the belief that Zungu did not write it. He feels that someone else was responsible for that because the English used was not the way Zungu would have responded.
