The Bafana Bafana midfielder posted a tweet praising former Sundowns assistant coach Rhulani Mokwena, saying he was the man behind Masandawana’s success.
Following a backlash on social media by fans, Zungu later deleted the tweets and apologised to Sundowns fans and Mosimane.
“I didn’t mean what everyone was saying, I have got so much love and respect for Pitso, so I wouldn’t disrespect him and he knows that,” Zungu told SAFM.
“I feel like the people made it big (than it was) and coach Micho was involved but like I said I didn’t mean it in a wrong way and I apologise and it’s in the past. I haven’t talked to coach Pitso, I was thinking of texting him, but I haven’t. I will call or text maybe one day meet him but I am sure he understands what’s happening.”
The 26-year-old also revealed that he speaks to Mokwena every day.
