SuperSport United head coach, Gavin Hunt, has called on the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to intervene in the public spat between Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Rhulani Mokwena, and TS Galaxy mentor, Sead Ramovic.

The two coaches have been at it for a few months now with jabs been taken at each other in the media before Ramovic claimed that Mokwena insulted him on a phone call.

The braw reached fever pitch in April when Mokwena accused Ramovic of instructing his players to intentionally injure Sundowns player, Bongani Zungu, as payback for the leg break challenge on Bernard Parker.

Mokwena was taken to court by Ramovic and TS Galaxy for a defamation case and in their 1-1 draw in Mbombela two weeks ago, things got heated between the two sides, in a feud that now looks not close to being resolved anytime soon.

“When you go and do your coaching licenses, there’s a certain etiquette, there’s a certain respect, you don’t have to be on someone’s Christmas card list and me on yours, but you can have a certain respect and you can’t let it go off the field,” Hunt said about the spat.

“I think there has to be a certain level of respect, and I do think, honest opinion, the league should get involved and something should happen, you can’t just let these things go like this because it’s going to continue and it’s a reflection on your sponsorships and you know all these types of things.”

He says the standoff must end.

“It looks like the league might have to get involved now I think – or something has to happen.” Written by Ntsako Mkhari
