Are Mokwena’s Cryptic Tweets Targeted At Downs?

In his latest message shared on Twitter, Orlando Pirates’ assistant coach Rulani Mokwena advises on how to control anger and bitterness.

After he found himself the centre of controversy, this after a football fan wearing Mamelodi Sundowns colours angrily charged at him in the Pirates technical area on the pitch at Loftus Versveld Stadium during the match between the two teams last Saturday, Mokwena jetted out to the UK to pay a visit to Liverpool’s Melwood academy as he looks to add to his football knowledge at the European club.

While chaotic scenes from Loftus have been hugely criticised, some pundits have linked the fan incident with some of the things that had been said in the build up to the match.

In the build-up to the match, former Sundowns midfielder Bongani Zungu made comments which appeared to be disrespecting Mosimane and discrediting him for the work he has done as the head coach of the Chloorkop outfit, after crediting Mokwena for the success of the Brazilians in recent times. 

However, Zungu later apologised for the comments which he made on Twitter, but Mosimane had been in doubt that the Duduza-born player had made those comments in the first place. 

As reported by the Siya crew, the South African Police Service (SAPS) have confirmed to the Siya crew that an investigation into all the possible witnesses who might have been involved in the incident are ongoing.

In the midst all of this, Mokwena has remained silent, but instead, has used the FIFA international break to improve himself with advanced football knowledge from abroad. 

However, it has been notable that the coach has been using Twitter to send cryptic messages, which some people might argue that they have been directed at Sundowns or possibly a certain individual or group of individuals at the club, or possibly even the Sundowns fan who attacked him. 

“Never harbour anger, bitterness or resentment. You will only self-destruct... try to always keep your heart right, no matter how painful it may be, look after your energy and soul because that’s how you attract your blessings [Edited],” read Mokwena’s latest tweet.
