Two Contracts: Defender Signs For Wits And Pirates

The Two Contracts Signed By Thato Thlone Have Been Confirmed

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 28, 2017 07:31 PM

As revealed by the Siya crew in edition 1029 of Soccer Laduma, it has been confirmed that Thato Thlone has signed two contracts, with Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates respectively.

As a result, Wits and Pirates could be set for a potential tug of war for the services of the defender. Thlone signed pre-contracts with the two clubs earlier this year, when he was still with Free State Stars.

Wits announced the signing of Thlone on January 05, while Pirates have been yet to officially communicate any information regarding the player. While it seems that the 26-year-old Mafikeng-born player has agreed to deals at both Wits and Bucs, Wits’ CEO Jose Ferreira says the Braamfontein-based club has no knowledge about him signing a contract with another club.

“Thlone signed a pre-contract with us in January that has been widely publicised, and we issued press releases to that effect.

“The process of signing him included us contacting Free State Stars ahead of our negotiations and a follow up saying that we’d signed him. I have no other knowledge of another contract with any other club. He has a contract with us.

“We followed the correct procedures and we will vigorously defend our rights for the player. I won’t go any further into any media speculation,” said Ferreira.

Contacted for comment on the matter Thlone’s representative, Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi, confirmed the deals. Mulovhedzi says he is the one to blame and not the player for what has happened.

“As the player’s agent, I feel the need to explain what has happened and how it happened because now I am getting enquiries from all over about the player and this whole thing.

“The player signed with Pirates first. But we never got the copy of the contract from Pirates. Because we didn’t have a copy of the contract, and there was a stage when Pirates was quiet and we weren’t sure about the future, the player panicked. We both panicked. ‘Grosso’ (Thlone) has a child and he needed to secure his future.

“We didn’t have a copy of the contract and Wits were keen on the player. That’s how we ended up signing a contract with Wits. I am saying that I am the one to be blamed and not the player for how the things have turned out.

“From what I understand, the two teams have a good relationship and I am sure that this is something that should be sorted,” said Mulovhedzi.

The player signed with Pirates first. But we never got the copy of the contract from Pirates.

We both panicked. ‘Grosso’ (Thlone) has a child and he needed to secure his future. This statement is childish and stupid; copy or no copy they signed a contract with Pirate and that is the bottom line. What was Pirate supposed to do after a signed contract? The agent should have followed up on the copy of the contract and not sign another contract unless he has contract termination letter from Pirate. Why people hate school mara; Why ???

Copy or no copy he's a Pirates player. These teams must go to court and the agent must pay the cost since he has admitted guilt on the national platform. Incompetent agent.

Once you sign as left back for FSS you have already signed a pre contract with Pirates but this agent was not aware of this. An FSS left is future Pirates : look at Matlaba , Gcaba , even Makola when he arrived he was left back but pushed forward because of his dribbling .

This boy is not special at all according to my observation I remember him many times losing balls that resulted in goals against Free State Stars . His demand started when he scored a fluke goal against Chiefs in a cup game last year , besides that he is nothing .

@Sifiso Senzo Well said my brother...this so called agent is dodgy and unscrupulous...SAFA please uproot this elements from our football...hiw dobyou panic after 2days if were to accept as factual that Wits announced the signing of this player on 4January...The only time Pirates could,which is highly unlikely,have "signed him is 1-3January?So-called agent go and concoct another more probable version

Thlone's agent is talking rubbish!!! He's just trying to justify his stupid mistake. The player signed a contract with Pirates so why would they panick before the end of the season. Even when they did panicked,the agent was supposed to speak to Pirates first before thinking otherwise!!!!!!! We don't need this kind of people in our football world.
