After Ramovic’s left hook that sent Pitso Mosimane tumbling down on the verbal boxing ring floor, I thought that was it, that was the knockout punch.
But while the referee was close to counting down to ten, the unbeatable Pitso Mosimane got up and decided to get on with the fight.
Trust Mosimane, a born fighter, not to take a punch on the face and walk away.
Ramovic’s left hook, in case you missed it!
“Mr Mosimane, I don’t usually react when I see someone’s emotions controlling them. But this time I’ll make an exception for you. I hope you will like my tone this time.
“Vilakazi is a wonderful person, a really fantastic player, [who had] a nice career. But we have just as many players who try very hard to start the same career and give everything every day.
“I would really like Vilakazi to continue his career. Maybe he could continue in your team because you could certainly use his quality.
“I’m sure your chairman [at Al Ahli Saudi] would like to have success this year and not care too much about your great achievements six years ago. I wish you to continue your fantastic record as a coach,” reads a message Ramovic sent to SABC Sport.
Pitso Mosimane’s come back punch.
“Kanti le Ngamula injane Nkosi Yami? Coach Ramovic, please sit down,” Mosimane wrote.
“I was just protecting Sbu Vilakazi’s career that is still left with few years to go. You have to make top 8 and match Dance Nedbank Cup record.
“Lets focus and be responsible Pro Licenced Coaches.”
