Former Chiefs & Pirates Star Dumped For ‘Not Washing Kit’ By PSL Club
Drama is tailing the embattled newly promoted DStv Premiership side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) who have confirmed that they have parted ways with three high profile players before they even kicked the ball. One of the players who was dumped is former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates star midfielder, Joseph “Tight” Molangoane. Molongane is reported to have been dumped after he allegedly refused to wash his own kit
Tight Molangoane is one of three players who have been released by TTM. He suffered the same fate which befell his friend and former Orlando Pirates superstar Oupa Manyisa. The other player released by the club is Gustavo Paez, who the club argued is still contracted to Mineros de Guayana Soccer Club back in South America.
According to the Sunday world, Molangaone was given the boot after he allegedly refused to wash his own kit, something which the club hierarchy did not take well, accusing him of sowing discord. However, according to the other sources, the real reason TTM dumped Molongaone and Manyisa is that the club was regretting the high salaries it had agreed to pay them.
A source who spoke to the publication said…
“The club is not doing well financially and signing those big salaries for Joseph and Oupa was a big miscalculation. The club saying Molangoane is a bad apple is just a way to get rid of him because they are finding it difficult to honour their contracts.
“How do you expect players to wash their own kit, this is not acceptable. Tight has not played a single game since the season started. He was told that he must sign a termination of his contract, and only then he will get his September and October salaries. They informed him that he was not registered with the PSL and because of that, his contract was null and void,” added the informant.
TTM has been accused of not paying players’ salaries as well as operating like a spaza shop after also failing to nail down former Chippa inited head coach Norman Mapeza to a contract. Mapeza abruptly left the club without taking charge of a single match.
TTM are sitting at 11th position on the PSL table after two draws in their opening matches against TS Galaxy and Mamelodi Sundowns.
