Mosimane Responds To Potential Lawsuit

After slamming SAFA last week for the manner in which they sacked him as Bafana Bafana coach seven years ago, Pitso Mosimane has had to issue an apology. 

Mosimane told journalists that he was still bearing the scars of how his then employers sent a “taxi owner, priest and traditional chief” to send him packing following a 1-1 draw with Ethiopia in a World Cup qualifier.

The traditional chief – Mwelo Nonkonyana – took offense and was quoted in the Sunday World newspaper insisting on an apology and threatening to sue Mosimane for defamation.

And the Sundowns coach was quick to express regret over comments he made when he was asked whether he would take up the Bafana job again. 

“I would like to just issue an apology to Chief Nonkonyana. I was emotional on his story. He was not directly part of it, even though he was somewhere as part of the (SAFA) hierarchy. He has done well for football and has important stakeholders around him. And I understand that he doesn’t feel good about what I said. I don’t have an ego to say sorry. When I have to say it it’s not a problem. I would like to apologise to him,” Mosimane said after Sundowns played to a 1-1 draw against SuperSport United in the first leg of their MTN8 fixture on Sunday.
