Kaizer Chiefs defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele was hammered by his former Mamelodi Sundowns teammate who said they felt disrespected when the former Downs defender celebrated his goal against his former side.

“The guy was a captain at the club, for him to go on and celebrate is not a good thing. He is no longer our own but in this game we need to show respect,” said a Sundowns player who asked not to be named.

It was the second time that Mphahlele scored against Downs.

When he found the back of the net last season, he walked away, which was what was expected again on Saturday.
