The situation between Mamelodi Sundowns and Pitso Mosimane shows no sign of ending amicably.

It has been well documented that Sundowns want Mosimane to pay R8.6 million they feel he owes them.

Mosimane left Sundowns ahead of the 2020/21 season, having spent eight years of his career at the club. Although the final few years were trophy-laden, he had to recover from a rather turbulent start. In the infant stages of his time at Masandawana, he even had to be escorted by police away from the field. This was due to a frustrate bunch of fans venting about the results of the team on the field. In the end, he would be responsible for building one of the most dominant, well oiled machines in South African football history. 

It was then a huge shock to the South African football fraternity when it was announced that Mosimane was leaving. He went on to join Egyptian giants Al Ahly, where he had local, continental and international success. But he was doing so under a cloud left by the manner of his departure  from Sundowns. 

When Mosimane left Sundowns, the club ordered his camp to pay R8 million. This is what Motsepe’s camp believed was the amount that would cover the remaining 44 months remaining on his newly signed long-term deal. Now according to Sunday World the Mosimane camp has summoned Sundowns coaches Rulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mngqithi to court! 

Mokwena and Mngqithi now dragged in?

Mokwena and Mngqithi both served as Mosimane’s assistants at Sundowns before he left for Al Ahly. According to the publication, the duo have been subpoenaed to court, as well as their respective agents. This will be to provide details of their respective contracts, which have an influence on proceedings. It is reported that, should they fail to appear in court, both could face jail time or a fine. 

Mokwena and Mngqithi have just led Sundowns to a seventh league title in a row. This is surely not the type of distraction they need going into the Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates
