In Trouble Again, Leopards Heading To PSL DRC For Ex-Chiefs Midfielder?

Black Leopards could be in trouble with the PSL yet again, with news reaching the Siya crew that one of the players from the team could take legal route in wanting to sort his issues with the Limpopo outfit. 

The Siya crew has learnt that former Kaizer Chiefs youngster, Zwivhuya Chris Matombo, is planning on taking Leopards to the PSL’s Dispute Resolution Chamber to challenge his release from the club.

Matombo has been in a salary dispute with Leopards after the club allegedly wanted to cut his salary after he had already signed his contract with them. 

Having joined Leopards in July, following his return from Qormi FC of Malta, Matombo had a contractual dispute with the Limpopo outfit, which delayed his progress in the team.

“Black Leopards have parted ways with Chris Matombo. The player refused to have his salary cut by the club and that's what led to the conflict. The player is considering taking the club to the PSL DRC in an attempt to have the matter resolved,” a source close to Matombo confirmed to the Siya crew.

The player’s older brother Nkipitheni Matombo, who played for South Africa’s U23 team at the 2000 Olympic Games alongside the likes of Benni McCarthy, Quinton Fortune, Matthew Booth, Siyabonga Nomvethe and Steve Lekoelea, has been vocal in the media about his younger brother’s grievances against Lidoda Duvha.     

Leopards have been yet to comment, after being contacted by the Siya crew for their side of the story on the matter.

Meanwhile, earlier this month, it was revealed by the Siya crew that Leopards’ David Thidiela has been banned from all football activities for a year, with the club boss also expected to be handed a R1 million fine, following his disciplinary hearing at the PSL.

The fine was handed out to the club boss as his punishment for intimidating referee Victor Hlungwani, following Leopards’ 1-0 loss of their league match against Bloemfontein Celtic in September.
