Mamelodi Sundowns had allegedly sued MT Sports Marketing & Management owner Moira Tlhagale over huge agent fees. The company has responded to the allegations.
“It is with a deep measure of shock and disappointment that MT Sports Marketing and Management has received summons from Mamelodi Sundowns FC demanding to be paid back commission fees in lieu of Coach Pitso Mosimane,” the statement read.
“We have received communication from Mamelodi Sundowns and have attempted to reach an amicable solution to this matter, however they have not responded to our request to meet with us. We attempted to speak to then club President Dr Patrice Motsepe in January this year, and we were refused and also last week with Chairman Tlhopane Motsepe, we were met with silence.
“The leaking of the story to the media is impolite and smacks of bullying tactics. This also comes after last week’s events where sections of Sundowns fans hurled insults to Coach Pitso and his mother.
“The summons and the media leaks put into disrepute Dr Motsepe’s blessings on the termination of the contracts, and well-wishes on coach Pitso joining Al Ahly S.C last year.
“There are also social media posts making the rounds that Ms Tlhagale alleges that Dr Patrice Motsepe has used one of the team’s employees in match fixing. We would like to categorically state that Ms Tlhagale has never said such things about Dr Motsepe or anyone associated with the club.
“There are unknown forces that are attempting to put MT Sports Marketing and Management’s name into disrepute.
“We, as MT Sports and Coach Pitso, are grateful to Mamelodi Sundowns for the years he spent there and would not like this glorious legacy to be soiled by tussles that could easily and rapidly be handled professionally and privately.” The statement continued.
