No hard feelings: Karuru

WARRIORS midfield talisman Ovidy Karuru has no hard feelings towards Botswana international Edwin Mohutsiwa who tackled him crudely during the Cosafa Cup quarter-final encounter last Sunday.

a�?I really have no hard feelings against Mohutsiwa.A�A� Football being a contact sport, I have no reasons to hold a grudge against him. I have also injured many,a�? said Karuru.

The 21-year-old Mohutsiwa tweeted during the week wishing Karuru a speedy recovery. The in-form Zimbabwe international has been praised as a special talent by the coaches who have worked with him and they are not surprised he is turning on the style in the South African Premiership.

Former Warriors coach Norman Mapeza says he always believed in the midfielder.

a�?Sometimes as coaches we differ in what we want in players. So you find a player who can excel under a certain coach and others struggle under a certain coach or under a certain environment. Clubs like Kaizer Chiefs are too demanding with a lot of pressure, but the same player can do well if he moves to another club with less pressure,a�? Mapeza is on record as saying.

In Mzansi, Karuru turns out for AmaZulu.
