The former Gaziantepspor man spoke to Soccer Laduma in edition 962, and revealed that he encouraged the dribbling-wizard's theatrics against their arch-rivals.

“I told him he hasn’t produced any magic in the derby and it was about time he gave us something.

“What I liked about his performance in the Soweto Derby is that we told him he knows when to defend and attack but, above all, he must just go out and play his normal game,” Moloi said.

Jomo’s exploits in the Derby went viral, after the well-known English publication the Daily Mirror, described it as a "wonderfully pointless display of nonsense”, in an article with the headline: "South African player produces the most disgustingly outrageous showboat in football history."

Moloi shares a different insight on Rakhale’s trickery, which he believes is a unique South African style, which makes the supporters happy.

“We have our own unique style and therefore we need to embrace it. Jomo must embrace his style of play, help the team bring good results and continue to make the supporters happy,” the Buccaneers assistant coach told Soccer Laduma.
