Pitso Mosimane called Patrice Motsepe a poor billionaire?

Further to a controversial spat over a signing-on charge, which Downs have requested from Mosimane's wife Moira Tlhagale, who works as "Jingles" manager at MT Management Consulting & Branding, the animosity between Mamelodi Sundowns and Pitso Mosimane appears to be the by the week.

Mosimane had dedicated himself to operate as Sundowns coach for the next four years before flying off to the hottest seat in African club football at Al-Ahly, but he had to be transferred four months into his new contract to go north.

Sundowns have sent a summons to MT Sports, seeking restitution of the signing-on fee, which is thought to be in the vicinity of R8 million. While it is uncertain how far the case has gone, Mosimane's camp has stated that they are prepared to take Masandawana to court if necessary.

"Pitso is looking for a fight with Motsepe, but Motsepe is keeping calm. Pitso must remember that it was Motsepe who defended him at Downs even when the odds were stacked against him. He stood firmly for Pitso. Now he is busy attacking Motsepe, is that his payback. How I wish Mr. Mosimane would just refrain from expressing his thoughts through social media platforms because what ever he says or does now is always going to be seen as directed at the CAF President or Sundowns even though it was just a sincere thought and that will not end well for him" Said a Facebook follower

Mosimane, who is known for his witty mind games and for not trying to suppress, took to Twitter this weekend and tweeted a popular Bob Marley quote, "Some people are bad, they just have money," implying that money isn't everything. Take what you will from that tweet, but it seems to be aimed indirectly at Sundowns owner Patrice Motsepe, who is said to be at odds with the club due to the saga.

The billionaire billionaire tycoon stepped down as president of Sundowns to become the president of the Confederation of African Football. Motsepe has consistently stated that he completely supports Mosimane in his endeavors and has granted him permission to relocate to Al-Ahly.
