Rulani Mokwena to spend more time in Courts during pre-season?

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena appears likely to spend more time in Courts than with his family and friends during pre-season.

This comes after TS Galaxy and their coach Sead Ramovic took legal action against Mokwena for the remarks he made on 29 April.

TS Galaxy had visited Sundowns in their first round fixture of the season where Bongani Zungu was injured by Orebotse Mongae.

After the match, Mokwena said TS Galaxy went into that encounter with a sole purpose of injuring Zungu as revenge for breaking Bernard Parker’s leg in October 2023.

And that statement didn’t sit well with TS Galaxy and Ramovic, and they demanded that Mokwena retracts the comments but he did not.

Now, ahead of Tuesday’s encounter, The South African reported that Mokwena had been summoned by the two parties at the Johannesburg High Court.

And the Sundowns coach has now responded to that legal action by TS Galaxy and Ramovic, saying he will meet them at the High Court before quickly shifting focus to his players.

RULANI TO TS GALAXY AND RAMOVIC: ‘LET’S MEET IN COURT’

No, I don’t want to talk about anything. They have taken me to court. So, let’s meet in court,” Mokwena told reporters in Mbombela as per FarPost.

“I don’t worry about TS Galaxy; I have to worry about Sundowns. I am employed by Sundowns. In this moment with the feelings that I have, I have to be very proud of my players because it was a difficult game to play.

“It was very tough, emotionally, physically and really they dug deep and showed incredible mentality. That’s the feeling I would like to leave Mbombela with. I would like to leave Mbombela with a feeling of pride, gratitude, and appreciation for the efforts and hard work of these special Mamelodi Sundowns group of players.”

PITSO HAS ALREADY SUBPOENAED MOKWENA AND MNGQITHI

With that said, this would be Mokwena’s second time at the same Court after he was subpoenaed by former Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane.

Mosimane is embroiled in a bitter legal battle with Sundowns over an R8.6 million compensation fee that the club is demanding back.

That relates to the four-year contract that Mosimane signed with Sundowns in 2020 but failed to honour as he left to join Al Ahly.

All Mosimane wants from both Mokwena and Mngqithi is for them to tell the High Court the terms and conditions of their contracts.

At the time, both Mokwena and Mngqithi were assistants to Mosimane at Sundowns before becoming co-coaches when the Kagiso-born mentor left for Al Ahly.
