“Let me put clarity on the whole issue which made a lot of empty noise without being informed (and) maybe lessons from me.” the Orlando Pirates co-coach said.
“We must listen with our ears and don’t assume and use the facts in front of me. Gabadinho Mhango, the question was why was he not part of the team and in my explanation I used the Afcon.
“And if I were to say it again, when you look at the teams, a goalkeeper from Ivory Coast (Badra Ali Sangaré), number one, is playing for JDR (Stars).
“A goalkeeper from Gabon (Jean-Noël Amonome), their number one is number three at AmaZulu and is not making number one at AmaZulu.” the Orlando Pirates mentor added.
“Relating to the question that was asked, why is Mhango doing well in Malawi and not at Pirates and I said maybe the competition in PSL teams is higher than in some teams in the Afcon.”
