Prominent soccer coach Jacob "Cellular" Sakala is nursing serious head injuries after he was hit with a bottle by his former wife.

The assault took place on Women's Day when the former Black Leopards and Dynamos coach went to visit his old flame Sarah Phiri in Yeoville, Johannesburg.

Sakala opened a case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm against the 30-year-old mother on Saturday night.

Instead of celebrating Women's Day with friends who had gathered at her flat, Phiri was handcuffed and tossed into police cells where she spent the weekend.

The two started arguing at her flat, according to evidence in the Hillbrow magistrate's court.

A close source said although the two are not living together following their divorce, they are still dating.

We can also reveal that Phiri still collects Sakala's dirty laundry and returns it when it is washed and ironed.

Sakala told police he was assaulted when he wanted to know why Phiri failed to deliver the laundry to his house in Westbury, Johannesburg. In his statement he said he did nothing to provoke Phiri.

The statement reads: "When I confronted her about it [the assault], she told me she did not care. I was bleeding severely."

Still in his blood-soaked clothes, Sakala rushed to the Hillbrow police station and returned with three police officers. The self-employed mother entered a guilty plea.

She was only released yesterday after Sakala went to withdraw the charges.

He told the prosecutors this was because Phiri was a breadwinner and she had a small child.
