Mokwena Responds To Ncikazi's Recent Statements

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena has cautioned that the Orlando Pirates dressing room can be affected by the recent comments made by coach Mandla Ncikazi.

Ncikazi has been dominating headlines for his comments that Sundowns shop at Woolworths while other teams shop at Spar and Pick n Pay. Mokwena believes such comments may create unnecessary consequences in the Buccaneers' camp, as players may feel disrespected.  

“For me, the biggest thing is what does it say to his own players. I know the Pirates players because I worked with them, and I don’t want to say much about it,” Mokwena said.

“I don’t want to go into that space. It’s a difficult comment to make and maybe he’s got his own logic (as to) why he made that comment and maybe it’s for the media to interrogate that statement.” 

Tyson leads the list of Mzansi's most expensive defenders:

 

Mokwena spent some time at the Buccaneers and knows some of the players, and hopes Coach Mandla can give more clarity.

“You must ask what he means by that because, to be honest, if you’re a Pirates player and you hear something like that I’m not sure how you’ll react. 

“I know those boys well and how sensitive they are, so I don’t know. I don’t want to talk about it and maybe it’s for coach Mandla to expedite the statement a bit more.”
