Kaizer Chiefs coach Middendorp throws jabs at Mamelodi Sundowns' Mosimane

The Amakhosi coach's barbs follows his Downs counterpart's recent condemnation of Fortune Makaringe's showboating

Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp says he is "surprised" and does "not understand" why a coach of Pitso Mosimane's calibre criticises a player for showboating.

In what is a resumption of the war of words between Middendorp and Mosimane dating back to 2006, the latest remarks by the Chiefs coach could trigger sharp words from his Sundowns counterpart.

Mosimane recently criticised Orlando Pirates midfielder Fortune Makaringe for showing off his skills by kneeling on the ball.
