Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rhulani Mokwena comes to the defence of Mothobi Mvala after his red card.

Mamelodi Sundowns middlefielder turned defender Mothobi Mvala receives a red card in the early minutes of the club’s African Football League second leg quarterfinal clash against Petro de Luanda at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.

Sundowns Survive Petro Atlético Scare

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena has come to the defence of Mothobi Mvala who made another glaring error in their 0-0 African Football League (AFL) quarterfinal second leg draw with Petro Atlético at Loftus on Tuesday night.

Sundowns were forced to play for 88 minutes a man down after the Bafana Bafana defender was sent for an early shower inside two minutes for a professional foul.

Referee Mustapha Ghorbal judged Mvala to have fouled advancing Petro Atlético attacker Tiago Leal who had a good scoring opportunity as he had a clear sight at Sundowns goalkeeper Ronwen Williams.

Fortunately, Mvala’s red card did not come back to haunt the Brazilians as they managed to hold on and progress to the semifinal against Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

Mokwena Quotes The Bible

“I have made far more costly mistakes in my life than Mothobi Mvala,” Mokwena said, before quoting from the Bible in strong defence of his player.

“We will analyse and we will speak to him like we do with all the other players.

“I am sounding like a pastor today but the Bible says forgive seven times and 77 times.

“He is a very important player for us and he has been very consistent.
