TS Galaxy head coach Sead Ramovic alleges he was threatened during a heated phone call with Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena.

Ramovic said he was taken aback by some of the strong language allegedly used by the former Orlando Pirates coach.

The German told the media this week that he didn’t come to South Africa to argue with anyone but said he would defend his players and staff.

Ramovic had some things to say after he eliminated Mokwena and Sundowns from the Carling Knockout Cup.

“When you talk to someone [in private], it should stay with what you talk, and you cannot go then afterwards again into the public [and say] ‘I did this and this’ and now we have to finish the sentence,” Ramovic said as per iDiski Times.

“So Rulani didn’t call me after it happened. It was on the 13th of November, I raised my voice that he disrespected my players, me, my staff and the club. I didn’t attack him, I just protected my players and I will not let anyone disrespect them.

“After a month, 29th of December, we were in the bus to Mbombela. Mudau came to me when he saw me in a mall a day before, and he asked me, ‘Coach, when are you going to buy me?’ (with a smile). I told him ‘I can’t buy you because you are too expensive’.

“He asked me then, ‘why you fight with my coach?’ and I told him it is not my goal to fight with anybody. I explained him exactly the same things I explained to you. ‘I will let not let anyone… and please tell your coach to stop undermining your colleagues and their work, and stop undermining my players’.

Galaxy coach Ramovic said his conversation with Khuliso Mudau led to Mokwena’s call.

“What happened, I got a call from him during the bus drive to Mbombela. I pick up the phone and he started to yell, to scream and he told me – I will just make it short because he spoke to me for 10 minutes with a lot of nonsense – but what he told it was ‘who the f*** are you to come to my f***ing country and talk to me like this?’ I just quote him. ‘Do you know who my parents are? Be careful how you talk because you are in my f***ing country’.

“After that, I told him that I don’t care who your parents are, and then he dropped the phone. This was his high standard of morals,” Ramovic recalled his call with Mokwena.
