Agent Apologises To Chippa
Local Football Agent Has Apologised To Chippa United
Local football agent, Lizwe Mthethwa, has apologised to Chippa United and the club’s boss Siviwe Mpengesi for the utterances he made about him recently.
At the end of last season, Mthethwa and Mpengesi were involved in a failed deal for Puleng Tlolane. Chippa had hoped to sign Tlolane after a promise from Mthethwa that he would bring them the striker from Polokwane City on a free.
However, the deal never materialised as the striker was at the time, and still is, contracted to Rise and Shine. Following the unsuccessful deal, Mpengesi went public in June claiming to have been ‘robbed’ of an amount of money in the region of R50 000 by Mthethwa.
The agent has since issued a statement apologising to the boss of the Port Elizabeth club.
“I apologise to Chippa and Chippa United FC for disrespecting the chairman, the football club and for threatening him (Mpengesi) and bringing the club into disrepute.
“I promised the club a player and never delivered on my promise. The player in question has a 24-month exclusive representation agreement with me which is still in effect.
“Furthermore, I’m not owed anything by Chippa, as we held negotiations and a six figure settlement was reached and paid to me in full,” said Mthethwa.
