Well-traveled football Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Sinky Mnisi has claimed that his former club, Royal AM would be topping the DStv Premiership table by now instead of Mamelodi Sundowns, had he not left the club.
Mnisi announced his departure from the KwaZulu-Natal outfit early this week after he took a special leave in August 2022. The leave came after wholesale changes in the technical team which included the notable departure of coach John Maduka and the surprise sale of Victor Letsoalo to Sekhukhune United.
While Mnisi was still at Royal AM, Thwihli Thwahla enjoyed considerable success in their maiden season in the DStv Premiership in 2021/2023 after buying the status of Bloemfontein Celtic. The club did extremely well by finishing third and by qualifying for the CAF Confederation Cup in that season.
On Wednesday, the former Highlands Park CEO confirmed his departure from the team. A few days later, Mnisi claimed that Shaun “MaMkhize” Mkhize’s club would be leading the current standings if he was still CEO of the club!
“I still have an unfinished business in football, I have some unfinished business,” Mnisi said on SABC’ MLFM Radio.
“If I was still at Royal AM this season, the team would be on its way to win the league. It would be Royal AM that you would see on top right now.
“I’m talking about this season, where Sundowns are on top. Royal AM would be going on to win the league this season. I left the team (Royal AM) at the wrong time.
“When I say I have an unfinished business, I mean that I have not won the league and I want to win it. I won everything else in football.”
Masandawana are the log leaders with 43 points after 17 games, while Royal AM seem to be struggling, after their initial success, as they have accumulated only 20 points after 16 matches this season so far.
