- The Orlando Pirates coach has shaded Kaizer Chiefs after their loss this past weekend
- He said Amakhosi player Parker 'dived' to earn a penalty

Orlando Pirates manager Rulani Mokwena was left fuming after the results of the Soweto derby over the weekend. His side lost to their bitter rivals after a penalty gave the Glamour Boys a goal. The angry coach likened Bernard Parker’s fall to the ground to diving into a pool.
Mokwena said the 84th-minute penalty was an unfortunate incident. He said that he watched it over and over again. He went on to say that he believed the Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp would also see that the penalty was dishonestly given.
The coach went on to throw shade at how the Kaizer Chiefs squad played against his team by commenting that the Bucs had to recover from some injuries.
He added another jab, saying that he would not be training his team in martial arts or swimming.
The coach complimented his squad and their efforts against Amakhosi. He said that they the manner in which one loses is important. He admired his team for not being bullied on the field.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Khama Billiat opened up about Kaizer Chiefs' impressive form in the Absa Premiership. The Chiefs are at the top of the log and although some believe their success is due to poor refereeing, Billiat has another theory. Billiat credited the Amakhosi defensive structure for their "solid" performance.
