‘I Am Not Your Wife’ – Pitso Told In CAF Aftermath

A CAF Champions League group stage clash between Mamelodi Sundowns and Lobi Stars of Nigeria turned ugly just minutes after the final whistle.

In a heated exchange as the two coaches sat next to each other for the mandatory post match press conference, Stars’ Solomon Ogbeide told his counterpart Pitso Mosimane: “I am not your wife”.

Mosimane had claimed Ogbeide refused to shake his hand after the match on Saturday night, which ended with Sundowns as 3-0 winners and booking their ticket in the quarterfinals of the competition.

But Ogbeide countered the argument and said there was a “misunderstanding” in when Sundowns played Stars away in Enugu two months ago in a fixture the home side won 2-1. Ogbeide initially did not want to be part of the press conference.

“There was an argument in Nigeria because Sundowns wanted to train early on an artificial pitch,” the Lobi Stars coach explained.

“I asked my boys to leave the field and told Sundowns to come train, but they refused. After the match here, he (Mosimane) refused to shake my hand and I said ‘Ok, I am not your wife’. Even when I saw him on Friday I said to myself ‘I am not your girlfriend, you are a coach in your country and I am a coach in my country.”

At the end of the press conference Ogbeide apologised, calling Mosimane “my African brother”, and the matter appeared to be resolved as a CAF media officer attempted to calm down the tense affair.
