What Fadlu Told Pitso In Showboating Saga

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed what was said between him and Orlando Pirates assistant Fadlu Davids in the aftermath of midfielder Fortune Makaringe’s showboating saga on Wednesday night.

Mosimane was seen on TV mocking the players’ grandstanding moves in the second half of their 1-0 win over Downs and was quick to express his dismay at the end of the match in his post-match interviews.

He also revealed why Davids approached the Sundowns bench not long after Makaringe got the crowd on its feet, though he offended Mosimane.

“That was a dangerous move. I thought we should defend now when moves like that come,” the Downs coach told reporters.

“But you know what’s good? Fadlu came and apologised, and I said ‘top coach’. He came to me and I said ‘he was with you at Maritzburg’ and he said he never taught him that. But it’s okay guys, you are one-nil up against Sundowns at Orlando Stadium, give everyone space.”

Mosimane went on to argue that national team coach Molefi Ntseki would not have been impressed by Makaringe.

“But Molefi Ntseki is here and I don’t think he is happy with that, he does not want that in the national team. We are struggling to qualify, we have the World Cup (qualifiers) coming. I don’t want to keep talking about it. You will ask the German coach(Pirates mentor Josef Zinnbauer) when he comes, he will probably tell you that (Sebastian) Schweinsteiger and all those guys do that, I don’t know. I will wait for the comment,” said Mosimane.
