TS Galaxy and Ramovic take Rulani Mokwena to High Court!

TS Galaxy and coach Sead Ramovic have taken Mamelodi Sundowns mentor to the Johannesburg High Court over the comments he made in April.

According to SABC Sport, both TS Galaxy and Ramovic had asked Mokwena to retract his comments over the injury of Bongani Zungu.

At time, Zungu limped off the pitch and Mokwena wasn’t pleased at all to an extent that he said the Sundowns technical team had been made aware of TS Galaxy’s plan to injury Zungu.

According to Mokwena, TS Galaxy players wanted revenge on Zungu for breaking Bernard Parker’s leg in the Carling Knockout Cup in October 2023.

And that statement didn’t sit well with Ramovic and TS Galaxy, and they ordered Mokwena to retract it but he failed.

Now, both TS Galaxy and Ramovic are claiming damages from both Mokwena and Sundowns following their failure to retract the coach’s statement.

“The impugning statements comprise untrue and defamatory statements pertaining to the Club and is indeed per se defamatory of the Club, its players, Head Coach, technical team, players, staff and management as well as its supporters,” read the document sent by Galaxy to Sundowns and Mokwena last month.

“In the circumstances, we are instructed to demand, as we hereby do, that Mr. Mokwena and, by extension, Sundowns immediately retract the impugning statements, and publish an unconditional, prominent and appropriate public apology (in the terms agreed to by the Club) in both videographic and written forms, which should be prominently published on all prominent football social and other media platforms (including that of Sundowns), be it print and/or electronic.”
