Sead Ramovic is on fire. It seems like the outspoken coach didn’t take kindly to Pitso Mosimane’s response about his statement on recently released former TS Galaxy player, Sbusiso Vilakazi.
The Rockets coach has now decided to take off the gloves and throw a left hook punch at the Al Ahli Saudi coach, and it is not just any punch, but it was thrown with Serbian precision! But how did this fight begin?
Sead Ramovic’s comment on Vila’s release from TS Galaxy:
“About Vila, fantastic player, fantastic name, great career but again, me as a coach, I don’t care about age, I don’t care about names. I just look at the things that I see on the field.
“And if we have players on the field that give 100% and train well, give a lot of effort, these players will play. The players that don’t do their best every day , will have a difficult time, of course,” Ramovic told the media.
Mosimane throws a jab at Ramovic, defending Vila:
“I’m dumbfounded by the tone of this interview, I trained Vilakazi for many years competitively and consistently for more than six years. He’s a true professional (on and off the field), who respects the game.
“[He]knows sports science and game tactics and he’s opinionated too.
He was also a coach in my dressing room and inside the pitch, one of the players who kept the dressing room quiet but spoke football tactics all the time. He led the football conditioning training sessions which are usually very tough and he critiques his game,” Mosimane responded to Ramovic’s comment.
Ramovic’s deadly left hook:
“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.
While the referee begins his countdown, with Jingles flat out on the boxing ring floor, we await Mosimane’s response with great anticipation!
Will it be a knockout, or Mosimane will get back up on his feet and box on?
