Despite Bafana Bafana having already failed to qualify for the 2017 Afcon following loss to Mauritania on Friday at Mbombela Stadium, a storm is brewing between Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane and national team coach Shakes Mashaba after Mosimane called for Mashaba to rest Downs players ahead of the upcoming games against Mauritania and Egypt

The comments did NOT sit well with the Bafana coach

Fans took to social media platforms alleging Mashaba is self-important

Pitso Mosimane who was fired as head coach of the national side in 2012, has led his team to the MTN8 semi finals after trashing SuperSport United at the weekend. Soweto giants Orlando Pirates & Kaizer Chiefs have been kicked out of the competition
