Fadlu Davids, the Orlando Pirates’ co-coach, has blasted the medical professionals on call at the Peter Mokoba Stadium for their sluggish response to Paseka Mako’s severe condition.
Mako clashed with his own goalie Richard Ofori, who was knocked unconscious by his knee during Baroka’s goalless tie.
Pirates teammates were overcome with emotion as they formed a protective circle around their comrade as the club’s medical personnel assisted Mako.
However, it took several minutes for the doctors on duty at Peter Mokoba Stadium to reach the ground and treat the Pirates player.
“The less said about that the better,” Davids told journalists
“Nobody in the ambulance, we have to find where the drivers are. I don’t know if they were watching the game.
“They have to be on call, they have to be ready. It’s an emergency.
“Credit to our medical team, 10 seconds they were on the field, seeing to Mako.
“But the reaction from the ambulance was not good enough, definitely not good enough for PSL standards.”
