Mokwena Questions Ramovic Over Tackle On Zungu

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena says he was left disappointed with Orebotse Mongae’s tackle on Bongani Zungu, claiming it was intentional after Sead Ramovic allegedly reminded his players on the Zungu challenge on Bernard Parker.

The latter made his first appearance in 195 after a tackle by Zungu broke his leg in October, but by the time he entered the pitch Zungu – a substitute himself – had already been stretchered off.

Mongae had tackled Zungu and received a red card in the 85th minute in Sundowns’ 3-0 win, with the incident enraging Mokwena, especially because Ramovic had allegedly reminded his players of Zungu’s tackle on Parker.

“I’m disappointed with the tackle on Bongani Zungu, very disappointed,” he told SuperSport.

“Because I was told already last night that the coach on the opposition showed that tackle that Bongani Zungu did on Bernard Parker and said ‘don’t forget what Bongani Zungu did’.

“And I’m very disappointed because these things happen. And I can say again to you that Bongani Zungu’s tackle can happen in any other game, anywhere I’ve seen worse tackles.

“We’ve even got Nasir out injured, but we’ve forgiven and moved on because it’s a contact sport, but we go and intentionally injury players and we send out these things, it’s a bit disappointing from a professional level.

“But anyway, we do the talking on the pitch.”
