Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena says the game is played on the field, not on social media in reference to Pyramids striker Fiston Kalala Mayele.
The DR Congo striker was denied a visa to enter South Africa before their CAF Champions League encounter at Loftus Verfeld, which ended in a goalless draw.
Pyramids offered a good account of themselves and Mayele took to his official Instagram to state he was denied entry by Sundowns and sent a warning upon their match in Cairo.
Sundowns went on to win the match on Tuesday evening at the 30 June Stadium through a solitary strike from Teboho Mokoena, who himself went on to mock the prolific striker who had a substandard display against the Brazilians.
“We don’t play the game on Twitter, the game is not played Twitter, it’s played on the pitch and I can tell you, I come from a country where you are innocent until proven guilty, and for him to make those allegations is incredibly unjust to our football club,” Mokwena said.
“We are a club governed by integrity, honesty and fair play and we try our level best to be that type of club on and off the pitch.”
Sundowns are currently second in Group A, level on seven points with TP Mazembe after four games, with the five-time African champions holding a superior head-to-head record.
At the moment Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club are one of the best team in African Football and Rhulani Mokwena has done very well in leading his Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club side in this Continental Football journey since they have a very high chance of progressing to the next round of the Champions League.
Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club supporters are also confident that Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club will win their second trophy of the season.
