Pitso snubbed Downs bench after match

CAF Champions League

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi insisted there is no bad blood between his technical team and Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane.

Drama unfolded in Atteridgeville on Saturday when Mosimane was given a hostile reception just before he entered Lucas Moripe Stadium for their CAF Champions League match.

Fans clad in Sundowns colours stopped the visitors' bus and hurled insults towards the former Bafana Bafana coach.

The Brazilians later issued an apology to Al Ahly for the unsavoury incident.

However, there were still questions asked around Mosimane's behaviour after he snubbed the opposition bench for handshakes soon after the referee blew the final whistle to bring an end to a very tense encounter.

Despite the snub from Mosimane after the final whistle, Mngqithi has poured cold water on any possibility of there being animosity between him and his predecessor.

"We haven't spoken yet, but we will speak. We don't have animosity between ourselves," said Mngqithi.

The Brazilians have turned their focus to domestic football as they take on SuperSport United in a Tshwane derby at Loftus Stadium on Wednesday.

A win over Matsatsantsa on Wednesday will see Sundowns crowned league champions to cement their return to CAF competitions next season.
