The war of words between Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rhulani Mokwena and TS Galaxy coach Sead Ramovic is not ending anytime soon from the look of things.

After Downs’ 3-0 win over AmaZulu on Tuesday, Mokwena responded to Ramovic’s claims that he threatened him over the phone.

Last week, the TS Galaxy coach implied that the former Orlando Pirates coach had insulted and threatened him using strong language.

“You don’t need to hear my side of the story. I don’t think you’d want to hear my side of the story,” Mokwena told the media.

“Let’s leave it as it is, he is right, and he is right. Let’s leave him to be right. I’m wrong. I’m the bad guy.”

“If I have to say something to Sead again, I’ll pick up the phone, and I’ll say it on the phone. I do not think that it is for the public, I don’t think.”

“Because we go then into a space we’re not supposed to go. I don’t mind if he comes for me. There are a lot of coaches who have come for me,” he added.

Mokwena said Ramovic disrespected Sundowns and the Motsepe family.

“You see when you start to say ‘the club has spent so much money’, you also borderline disrespecting the Motsepe family, who are people who give so much of their hard-earned money from the family into football and many others.

“You saw the other day they’ve given money to scholars for study debts, and then you come and talk like that,” he said.

“Sead, you must give him, guys, all he’s crying for. I don’t know why you can’t hear the underlying message – it’s underlying – all he’s crying for, he’s won five games in a row, give him attention, give him praise, give it to him.

“The guy is pleading ‘I’ve won five games in a row, no one is talking’, give it to him,” Mokwena added.
