Cardoso Sheds Light On Seema, Webber Saga

Sekuhukhune United defender Daniel Cardoso says the incident between Lehlohonolo Seema and midfield star Jamie Webber was blown out of proportion.

It was suggested there was a major fallout between Webber and the coach, who was relieved of his duties at the end of the season, after his short-term contract.

With Seema integral to leading them to their highest-ever finish in the DStv Premiership, speculation was on overdrive that his exit was also due to breakdowns in relationships with key players.

Edwin Gyimah was the first to be outcasted during the season, but Cardoso said it was nothing out of the ordinary.

Seema substituted Webber before half-time in consecutive games, in their defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns and draw to TS Galaxy, in which Webber notably lost his cool at the coach in the latter game.

“Coach and some players clashed, but everything got sorted, he’s a manager, he’s very good at what he does, if he has arguments with players, he’ll go to the player and fix it straight on the spot,” Cardoso said in The Bettor Podcast.

“It’s normal [the incidents with Jamie] coaches and players will clash, you see it in Europe, you saw it here, and it will always happen no matter who comes in and there will still be clashes and arguments, it’s part of the game when two men and after the game shake hands and it’s how it goes.”

iDiski Times has it on good authority that Cardoso will continue for another season at Babina Noko with his contract due to expire on 1 July.
