Former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Toni Silva has launched a scathing attack on former coach Pitso Mosimane.
The player, who has now been sold to Al-Ittihad in Egypt, penned an open letter tearing the coach apart. He claimed that Mosimane was the “weakest coach I have ever had in my life.”
Silva joined Sundowns in May. He played 11 times for the Brazilians in 2018-19‚ scoring only twice. In his letter, he claimed that he has never spoken ill of any former team or coach, but has noted that Mosimane has not done the same.
So this is my response: Pitso you are the weakest coach I have ever had in my life. You are arrogant and your ego does not help you as you fail to make your players happy‚ but kill dreams and player’s careers then turn around and say ‘it didn’t work out.’
He added that many who work under Mosimane were afraid to tell him how they really felt about him.
But you are too fake Pitso and everyone knows; they are just scared to tell you. That team is so unprofessional‚ makes players pay for their permits (Where have you ever heard of that?).
Sundowns communications manager Thulani Thuswa told SowetanLIVE that they would issue an official response soon.
The Mamelodi Sundowns coach has not had lady luck on his side of late. Briefly.co.za previously reported that the embattled coach was recently charged with assault.
On 16th September last year, 54-year-old Mosimane had an altercation with a security guard in the match against Amazulu.
He said, “I was called by the DC, it's an assault. Against Barca, a supporter came in. You were there, what did I do? I hugged him, I ushered him out. It's not the first time I usher them out. That's what happened in Durban. It's an assault.”
Meanwhile social media users took the internet to air their views on the shots fired at Pitso.
