Madida: Rosslee has personality problems

Fani Madida says AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee takes credit for Orlando Pirates treble

Posted: 12 March 2013 Time: 1:43 pm

Fani Madida hints at the reasons that led to him having his contract terminated at AmaZulu – saying Craig Rosslee takes too much credit for Orlando Pirates' treble.

According to a statement released by Usuthu, the club decided to release Madida from his duties after “it was found that the working relationship between the assistant coach and head coach [Craig Rosslee] had not improved since the coach’s arrival”.

In a chat with KickOff.com, Madida was unwilling to bad-mouth his former teammate, but did allude to the reasons behind their problems working together.

“Craig was my teammate and captain and I know him very well. I know his weaknesses and also his strengths. His strength is that he is a hard nut to crack.

“It’s not about me to talk about him. But if an assistant coach goes to the public and says that he is responsible for winning the treble with Orlando Pirates, it says a lot about what kind of person you are and about your personality,” Madida says.

“I think the personality problems will be revealed by the games still left and what kind of person he is.

“I believe the people at AmaZulu will only start to understand him better as they move forward together,” he adds.

You were an ASSISTANT coach, the coach's decision was final. Just make peace with the fact that Usuthu opted to keep the coach. Find another job.

Madida Craig Rosslee lost the Psl cup in the last game while he was at Ajax as a head coach then the following season he joined Pirates as an assistant to R. Krol and they won the treble on their 3rd season if I'm not wrong. So wena as a head coach or assistant what have u achieved? Don't be like that stupid and arrogant Pitso whose jealousy of other coaches like Gordon and Gavin. Learn to give credit where's due.

What matters the most is that Amazulu should try by all means to avoid relegation. Goodluck to them.

Is there anything wrong in me saying I am the reason behind the success of my company/department even though there are supervisors and Chief Directors above me?

I guess the dirty work is done by those not in the limelight and assistant coaches are one of those.

Fani Madida is just angry that he was not given the post period. Go back to unseat Nurse Khumalo so that you can make your own history.

Fani should have been more Profesional about this matter
He is still an aspiring Coach who needs his Masters (Craig and others) to recomend him
