Tensions rise as coaches Sead Ramovic and Rulani Mokwena clash, prompting SuperSport United’s Gavin Hunt to call for PSL intervention.

The feud, simmering since the season’s inception, erupted when TS Galaxy’s Ramovic accused Mamelodi Sundowns counterpart Mokwena of threatening him during a fiery exchange.

Matters worsened as Mokwena alleged Ramovic’s intent to injure Bongani Zungu, sparking a defamation case.

Speaking on the escalating drama, Hunt emphasized the need for respect and professional conduct among coaches.

“There’s a certain etiquette in coaching…a certain level of respect,” Hunt remarked, advocating for PSL involvement to curb the dispute’s adverse effects on the league’s image and sponsorships.

While acknowledging the existence of healthy rivalries, Hunt emphasized the importance of maintaining decorum and adhering to ethical standards. “There’s nothing wrong with having a rivalry…but there’s gotta be respect,” he asserted.

As tensions persist, Hunt suggested a resolution through dialogue, albeit acknowledging the challenge due to the dispute’s escalation.

“They need to sort it out…there’s a code of ethics in the business that needs to happen,” Hunt remarked, drawing parallels with renowned coach rivalries while underlining the necessity for respectful interaction.

With SuperSport’s season culminating in a 1-1 draw against Orlando Pirates, Hunt’s charges missed out on a top-four finish.

As the league braces for resolution, the question remains whether PSL intervention will quell the escalating conflict between Ramovic and Mokwena.
