SuperSport United’s new signing Buhle Mkhwanazi has broken his silence on his protracted legal battle against his former employees, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.
Mkhwanazi has been out of the game for more than a year due to a standoff with the club that purchased the topflight status of Bidvest Wits in June last year due to outstanding monies.
The crew reported that the 31-year-old was due an amount of around R3 million.
Now, one year after the saga, Mkhwanazi has returned to topflight football, penning a deal with deal with Matsatsantsa and he has provided an update on the status of his matter with his former bosses.
“I would like to say things are sorted,” he told the South African Football Journalists Association (SAFJA).
“If you can really find a club to play for, you still communicating with the former bosses, it means that things are sorted. It might look like there is a fight but it’s not like that, so ja, it’s sorted.”
Mkhwanazi also touched on his fitness levels, which according to his coach Kaitano Tembo, has remained in peak condition, despite his year-long absence from the game.
“Obviously, I have tried to be disciplined as much as I can to be disciplined in terms of my diet – number one. Number two; not drifting away from the game so much. Now and then I would watch a game but not as a supporter, but I would try and analyse and compare it to what I used to do and what the players are putting up on TV every weekend. It was just diet and a lot of self-discipline, I do not drink, I don’t smoke, I watch what I eat and that was the most important part,” he explained.
The 32-year-old recently made his long-awaited SuperSport debut when he came on as a sub in their 3-1 win over Golden Arrows last week.
