Simba SC lodge complaint over Mandla Ncikazi’s comments as things turn NASTY

He also made mention of the poor decisions by Tunisian referee Haythem Guirat.

In an interview with Kickoff, Gonzalez confirmed the East Africa club will be lodging an official complaint to CAF concerning Ncikazi’s comments.

“If you want to play mind games I would like to ask him to keep my country out of his mouth and also my team,” Gonzalez said.

“No such things happened and even if PSG would like to come, they will be treated with the same hospitality. But for someone to go as far as saying Simba was abusive or didn’t give them support and was hostile, was absolutely incorrect.

“All the support that was required was given and Simba has never been a bad host.

“We want to take this further. I want to use this as a teachable moment.

“There are people you can mess with and try to play some psychological games with and I understand there are some fears over job security on his side and the technical team at Orlando Pirates.

“But this is not the right way to save their jobs and this is not the right way to speak of each other.

“As CEO of Simba SC, I don’t accept it as a citizen of Tanzania and I don’t accept this and for this reason, I am going to file a strong complaint. So I would like to see Pirates and also the government address this because it puts us in a tricky predicament.

“It also creates a lot of fear heading to South Africa. We know that there is a high crime rate and we understand the challenges South Africans are facing at the moment so you start to question the kind of treatment that you may or may not receive.

“I am deeply concerned and worried,” Gonzalez concluded.

The return leg at the Orlando Stadium will be held on Sunday, 24 April at 18:00.
