The feud between Pitso Mosimane and Sead Ramovic continues as the Al Ahli Saudi Club coach hit back again following his comments about former Mamelodi Sundowns player Sibusiso Vilakazi.
Vilakazi left Galaxy two days before the closure of the January transfer window after both parties agreed to mutually terminate his contract. There had been no public animosity between the two parties, despite reports that Vilakazi had been demoted to the DStv Diski Challenge team before his departure – which were denied by his agent Mike Makaab.
Last week, though, Ramovic explained his view on Vilakazi’s exit, insinuating that he didn’t train as well as other the players, which led to Mosimane defending his former player in response to a video with Ramovic’s comments posted on social media.
That was not the end of their feud, as Ramovic then responded himself with a reported statement to Mosimane via the public broadcaster, SABC.
“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,” Sead Ramovic responded according to SABC Sport.
“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.”
Mosimane once again responded to the TS Galaxy coach, but got a little more emotionally aggressive this time around. Even comparing his PSL record to other coaches.
“Coach Ramovic, please sit down,” he wrote on social media.
“I was just protecting Sbu Vilakazi’s career that is still left with a few years to go.
“You have to make the top 8 and match [Dan] Dance’s Nedbank Cup record.
“Let’s focus and be responsible Pro Licence Coaches.”
Will the Serbian Coach reply with another blow, as the Mosimane-Ramovic feud continues to roll on?
