Cape Town - Pitso Mosimane has made it clear that he is not done battling with Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp, especially if the German continues talking in the media.

The Mamelodi Sundowns boss has made no bones about the fact that he dislikes Middendorp and insists that it is the journeyman coach who started the conflict with him.

Mosimane is in hot water with the PSL after claiming that Middendorp's Amakhosi side have been benefiting from poor refereeing decisions this season, but he insists he will not stop talking.

"I don't speak to Ernst Middendorp. He speaks on Thomas Mlambo's show. When he won against Benni [McCarthy], he put the honourable what-what," said Mosimane.

"I told him about his tourism that he has been doing for the whole part of football, seven years of tourism that he did and how he benefits. So I will tell him. I don't start but I will give back.

"I will not allow him to say anything because I have more. I can drop them every day. I will drop them. I have a lot against him. That was there at PSL. Remember he said PSL is against him. I have four accounts.

"He realised that it's too much [when he was at Maritzburg United], he said 'let me leave'. Okay, we don't stay when we don't benefit. He left.

"If he gives me, I give back, you know the story. I will not let you. Because why? I stand for myself. I speak. Why not?

"I don't hold back because maybe I am killing my chances of coaching another team next year or something, no. My heart is here. I fight. When I fight, I fight. I don't care who I fight against. For my team, I fight.

"So I don't create opportunities that maybe I said too much against another team and I won't get a job. Excuse me. I don't play in that space."
