Downs Issue Apology To Al Ahly
Mamelodi Sundowns have broken their silence and commented on the confrontation between some of the club’s fans and Al Ahly on Saturday.
Ahead of the second leg, which ended 1-1 and saw Masandawana being eliminated after losing 3-1 on aggregate, some Sundowns supporters confronted the Al Ahly team bus.
In addition, they insulted coach Pitso Mosimane and his mother, with Downs now issuing an apology.
MAMELODI SUNDOWNS APOLOGISES TO AL AHLY
Mamelodi Sundowns observed behavior and conduct from some of its supporters before its match with Al Ahly which is unacceptable and improper and does not reflect the integrity, respect, compassion, and other values that we uphold.
We received complaints by supporters of improper conduct and insults but Mamelodi Sundowns supporters should under no circumstances, disrespect, insult or behave in the manner they did and must at all times stay true to our values and principles.
We therefore want to apologize to Al Ahly and those associated with the Club.
Mamelodi Sundowns will institute an investigation and appropriate action will be taken against those supporters whose conduct was improper and contrary to the values and principles that we adhere to.
We remain dedicated to maintaining the good relations, mutual respect and mutual commitment that exists between the leaders of our two Clubs and all our stakeholders.
