Ncikazi’s infamous rant on ill-treatment of Orlando Pirates!

“One, as Africans, let us change this mentality that when opponents come to Tanzania, you are so hostile to them that you treat them like animals,” the Orlando Pirates coach said following his side’s quarterfinal clash in Tanzania.

“We saw inhumane treatment everywhere we go. We were treated so badly, but this is a game of sports that should unite us. But what you get here are hostility and abuse.

“Why do Africans do this to other Africans? Do you really think the hostility that Orlando Pirates get when we come here … when Simba come to South Africa should we treat them that way?

“The treatment that we got from the stadium to the hotel, from the airport – why do you do this as Africans to other Africans? Are we going to improve the football in the continent?”
