Africa Soccer Pirates coach Ncikazi slams Simba for bad treatment in Tanzania

Orlando Pirates co-coach Mandla Ncikazi has accused Simba of treating the South Africans badly ahead of the Confederation Cup match on Sunday evening.

Ncikazi said this in a post-match press conference after losing 1-0 to Simba in the quarterfinal first leg match played at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar Es Salaam.

 “The treatment that we got from the stadium, the hotel and the airport, why do you do this as Africans to other Africans?” he said.

“Are we going to improve the football in the continent, and we are all proud that Simba won, they did not win. The referee made them win.

You should be ashamed of yourselves as Africans, but listen to this. We’re going to treat Simba with decency when they come.

“We will show them what it is to be a true African by giving them the best hospitality and treating them like human beings.

You don’t treat visitors the way we got treated here; you should all be ashamed. We did not deserve to lose. The officials caused us to lose.”

Pirates will host Simba next week in the reverse fixture.
