Pitso Mosimane has preferred to remain tight-lipped over allegations he called Cape Town City midfielder Aubrey Ngoma and offered him a job at Mamelodi Sundowns.
Citizens owner John Comitis came out with guns blazing in a strongly-worded statement slamming Mosimane for contacting Ngoma ahead of their Absa Premiership defeat to Maritzburg United at the start of May, with an offer to join Sundowns next term.
Mosimane, though, chose not to comment on Comitis’ statement but did admit he found the timing of its release suspicious, coming on the day of their title-threatening draw against Baroka at Lucas Moripe Stadium last night.
“I don’t want to comment, it’s better not to say much [about claims of contacting Ngoma],” said Mosimane.
“You must understand, when did he [Comitis] say that? After they [Cape Town City] lost [to Maritzburg United]. They are human beings, it’s emotions,” he added.
Sundowns’ draw against Baroka saw the Brazilians miss the chance to go top of the Absa Premiership table after leaders Bidvest Wits slumped to a shock 3-1 loss against Free State Stars, meaning Mosimane’s men are now two points adrift with two games to go.
