The source added that Mthembu, whose contract was meant to expire at the end of the season, has since received a pay out from the Citizens, with two months left to run on his deal.

In a letter seen by the Siya crew this afternoon, City confirmed salary cuts for players and staff ranging from 15% to 100% for the month of May and possibly June, this due to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the country’s crippling economy. 

“We are requiring a 30% cut in player salaries — across all players — I will not cap the salaries, as discussed before. In addition, all those under R30k p month salary will get a 15% cut.”
