Motsepe losing patience?


The Brazilians lost 2-1 to Stars in an Absa Premiership encounter at Loftus Stadium - their fourth defeat in five matches - which leaves them languishing in 12th spot on the log with just three wins from their 14 games so far.

At the end of the match, supporters began chanting the name of former Sundowns coach Miguel Gamondi, now in charge of Stars, who lost his job to Igesund two years ago, as well as cries of ‘Zuma, Zuma, Zuma’, a joking reference for new ANC president Jacob Zuma to come and coach the team.

And as he walked down the tunnel following the game, Igesund was struck by a vuvuzela and had water poured on him as fans called for him to resign.

The players have been reluctant to disclose what went on in the meeting and management such as acting CEO Belinda Ndlovu, Daniel Mudau and Walter Kutumela were left wandering outside the dressing room with security staff and policemen.

In the end, Motsepe and Igesund had to be escorted from the stadium by police in scenes reminiscent of the coach’s final days at Orlando Pirates in 2001 when he was attacked by fans on the training pitch, hastening his exit from the club.

The current situation at the club has seen a resurgence in rumours linking Bafana Bafana assistant coach Pitso Mosimane with the hot-seat at Chloorkop, with Motsepe a known admirer of the former Supersport United mentor.
