Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Themba Zwane has denied that he has told coach Pitso Mosimane that there is an undisclosed coach trying to lure him away from the club.
After the 2-1 victory over Baroka FC on Sunday, Mosimane said there is a coach from a big club calling Zwane in an effort to get the player’s signature.
Mosimane made it clear that the coach he is speaking about is not Kaizer Chiefs’ Steve Komphela. Rumours are that the coach could be Pirates assistant Rhulani Mokwena.
Mosimane said: “There’s a coach of a big club busy calling Themba Zwane, I won’t say who it is but it’s not Steve.
“If I did the same there would be complaints. The coach is from one of the biggest teams and Themba says he’s calling and calling. I know the coach, he’s very close to me but I will protect him.”
Zwane, however, says he does not remember having a conversation with Mosimane about this.
“You know to be honest I don’t remember saying that to him [Mosimane],” Zwane told the media at the club’s headquarters in Chloorkop today.
“I don’t know what it is happening, I don’t know what is going on.”
Asked if there is a coach who has been calling him, Zwane said: “No”.
