Former Bidvest Wits assistant coach Paul Johnstone has launched a scathing attack on Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila and has raised questions aimed at the PSL.
Johnstone, who spent seven years at the Clever Boys under Gavin Hunt took to Twitter to launch a scathing assessment of TTM, who according to local reports, have once again failed to pay their players on time.
In the tweet, Johnstone labelled TTM’s purchase of the club as a disgrace and has questioned the PSL’s decision to commission a sale, while he added that he fears for the future of the local game.
“99-year legacy @BidvestWits sold down the river to this. Absolute shambles. Not to mention the loss of jobs for staff and players. Disgraceful. How @OfficialPSL allows this to happen is beyond me. I fear for the future of SA footy,” Johnstone wrote.
Since purchasing Wits’ top-flight status in June 2020, TTM have been marred with issues of maladministration, failing to play payers on time- and ‘phantom' signings.
In addition, the crew recently reported that former CEO Sello Chokoe was suspended from the club after it was alleged that he had defrauded the club of around R2 million.
Contacted for comment, the club's media officer Mr Livhuwani Madzuhe, informed the crew that there is no official comment from the club regarding unpaid salaries.
It is not only on the field where Tshakhuma have struggled. The Limpopo outfit currently sits in 15th position on the DStv standings and have won just one of their 11 matches in their maiden PSL season.
