Cape Town - Montpellier and former Mamelodi Sundowns winger Keagan Dolly says that Pitso Mosimane is the true leader at Downs, despite comments by Bongani Zungu suggesting otherwise.

Zungu created a stir in South Africa when he took to social media and posted a statement suggesting that former number two and current Orlando Pirates assistant, Rulani Mokwena, was the man responsible for the success.

The Amiens central midfielder also sent a message to Dolly hinting that the player would agree with what he had said, saying: “Trust me it's him. Even at Sundowns, ask Keagan Dolly.”

The player later issued a public apology in which he back-tracked from his earlier opinion on the matter.

Nonetheless, Dolly has since said that Mosimane is the leader of the Brazilians. He tweeted: “For the past few days, I've been 'knowing a lot'. I've tried my best not to get involved in this debate, but I feel like I should tell my side.

“My time with Sundowns was one of the best experiences in my career thus far. For me, personally, I feel like it was a team effort whereby we all had a common goal and our leader was coach Pitso! Although we had coach Manqoba Mngqithi and coach Mokwena having their input.

“But, at the end of the day, coach Pitso was the man in charge. I have great respect for all the coaches that I've worked with at Sundowns. Everyone had an input but at the end of the day coach Pitso was the one who brought me back.”
