Eric Tinkler slams false reports over Rooi Mahamutsa

Posted: 2 December 2015 Time: 13:50

Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler hit out media reports claiming that he had a fight with defender Rooi Mahamutsa at training.

The Buccaneers landed at OR Tambo International this afternoon following their exploits in Tunisia, where they lost 2-1 on aggregate to Etoile du Sahel in the CAF Confederation Cup Final.

Mahamutsa sat on the bench for the match in Sousse, but Tinkler insists there was no fight.

“I don't know where all this is coming from? It’s coming from you guys that me and Rooi Mahamutsa had a fight. Where does that come from? Who is creating these rubbish stories?”

“That story about Mahamutsa is not a rumour, it’s a lie. There is a difference between a rumour and a lie. Let’s be truthful here because you are playing with people’s lives.”
