Pitso: I still have a lot against Ernst

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has warned his counterpart Ernst Middendorp that he will not back off in their fight as long as the German coach continues to speak in the media.

Mosimane and Middendorp have turned local football into a battlefield with some nasty utterances off the pitch lately.

'Jingles' has put it across the German coach's face his belief that Chiefs have been benefiting from referees' decisions, a stance that has led to a PSL charge he will now need to answer for.

Mosimane insists he is not done yet and is ready to drop more against Middendorp if necessary.

"I don't speak to Ernst Middendorp. He speaks on Thomas Mlambo's show. When he won against Benni [McCarthy], he put the honourable what-what," said Mosimane.

"I told him about his tourism that he has been doing for the whole part of football, seven years of tourism that he did and of how he benefits. So I will tell him. I don't start but I will give back.

"I will not allow him to say anything because I have more. I can drop them every day. I will drop them. I have a lot against him. That was there at PSL. Remember he said PSL is against him. I have four accounts.

"He realised that it's too much [when he was at Maritzburg United], he said 'let me leave'. Okay, we don't stay when we don't benefit. He left," reminded Mosimane.

He continued: "If he gives me, I give back, you know the story. I will not let you. Because why? I stand for myself. I speak. Why not?

"I don't hold back because maybe I am killing my chances of coaching another team next year or something, no. My heart is here. I fight. When I fight, I fight. I don't care who I fight against. For my team, I fight.

"So I don't create opportunities that maybe I said too much against another team and I won't get a job. Excuse me. I don't play in that space."
