Agent Responds To Zuma’s Chiefs Salary Claims

Dumisani Zuma’s agent has sought to clarify recent reports about the Kaizer Chiefs player’s future and claims that he was docked part of his salary.

The attacker was suspended by Amakhosi in November after he was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol – leading to an internal investigation by the club, while he was barred from all football activities.

He has returned to training and part of the discussion between Zuma and his employers was that he would be punished “in line with the company’s disciplinary code” and also attend rehabilitation for an unspecified period.

But local reports last month suggested Chiefs had deducted his salary as a fine before the player could rejoin the team for the second half of the season.   

“There was no salary cut at all,” his agent, Basia Michaels of QT Sports, clarified to the Siya crew this week.

“Chiefs must be commended for giving us the opportunity to rectify the purported public image created by media and more so some journalists. I do believe a salary cut would have been unfounded based on the loving, caring and family manner in which they dealt with the matter.”

Michaels said she was hopeful the 26-year-old, who has been linked to several clubs over the past year, would be a welcomed boost for coach Stuart Baxter.

“There will always be a narrative created by people that don’t realise they are affecting people’s lives versus the truth. Once again kudos to the Motaung family and Chiefs for the manner in which we dealt with this matter,” she explained.

“He (Zuma) is training again, he was even in camp with them as they jetted off to their desired (mid-season) location and he is in high spirits. It’s good to see him in such a good space and I am sure he will definitely bring another dimension to the game upon his return.”

Zuma remains contracted to the Glamour Boys until June next year.
