Drama Escalates As CEO Is Suspended

The Siya crew can confirm Bloemfontein Celtic have made changes to the club's management team.

Information reaching the crew’s desk is that a verbal scuffle between club CEO Khumbulani Konco and owner Max Tshabalala on Wednesday led to the former being suspended with immediate effect.

Reports state that Tshabalala was apparently unhappy with the way he was addressed by Konco, during the altercation, which led to Konco being put on leave.

It is uncertain when Konco will be reinstated in his position, but it is understood that Tshabalala holds the final card.

Countless attempts were made by the Siya crew to get hold of Celtic officials and proved fruitless at the time of publishing.

Celtic have been under severe pressure in recent times.

The Siya crew reported that coach John Maduka is a man on thin ice, and recently survived the axe with a narrow 2-1 victory over SuperSport.

Maduka’s current assistants, Abram Nteo and Ditheko Mototo have been lined up as possible replacements for Maduka, who has endured a torrid run that has seen him pick up just three wins from 13 matches after his MTN8 final loss to Orlando Pirates in December.

Meanwhile, the crew also reported that Celtic received a transfer ban from FIFA, following a contractual dispute involving the club’s former player Patrick Tignyemb.

Celtic was found guilty last year by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) for the unfair dismissal of the Cameroonian goalkeeper and allegedly not compensating him, with the keeper confirming to Soccer Laduma that he is owed R3 million by the club.
