Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has been slammed by a development coach in Botswana for the freezing out of Mogakolodi Ngele at the club.

It has been made clear that Ngele has no future at Sundowns and it was reported recently he is seeking an exit in January for an undisclosed side.

The Botswana international joined the reigning Premiership champions in 2015/16 but has made just three starts since that time.

The 28-year-old was loaned out to Wits in 2016/17 and spent time with SuperSport United in 2017/18.

Despite reportedly being forced to train away from the first team squad at Chloorkop and getting no playing time as a result in 2018/19, he remains in the plans of his national team manager David Bright.

The Gaborone-born ace was called up by Bright for the side's AFCON qualifiers against Burkina Faso.

Nonetheless, Matshediso Kowa, a development coach in Botswana, feels the attacking midfielder has been treatly unfairly at the Brazilians.

He told The Patriot on Sunday: “It hurts me in the extreme. Mosimane is seemingly a jealous person, he doesn't want his players to beat him.

“At first he brought him from Platinum Stars and froze him out of action. Then he was loaned to Wits and they refused to sell him for R8m when the club wanted him.

“Last season he was at SuperSport and was brought back and is once more frozen out of action. The saddest part is to hear claims that he is not used because he is lazy. If he is lazy then why doesn't the club release him?”
