Former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns Oupa Manyisa looks set to finally put the drama with Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila behind him, with the matter likely to be settled by next week.
Manyisa parted ways with TTM not long after signing a contract with them. He signed a two-year deal and there was an option in the contract, but the two parties ended their relationship before he could even kick a ball in an official match for the club.
Manyisa and his representatives took the matter to the PSL, to get a settlement – said to be in the region of R2 million, and it looks like the matter will finally come to an end next week and he can focus on finding a new club.
The 32-year-old has been training on his own while he waits for the matter to be resolved.
“It was postponed to next week. We are just now waiting for the PSL to issue an order. It’s no longer about a matter of a case being argued, so we are meeting for the order to be issued and then it will be done,” his representative Tshepo Mabona tells the Siya crew.
“They (TTM) never filed opposing papers from the beginning. It’s too late to file opposing papers now. They should have done their due diligence. You know the matter was not defended, therefore you are going to be liable. So, that’s where it is. He wants to play and the sooner we resolve this, the better. Even the clubs that are interested have been asking what’s going on, but the matter has been dragging. But at least it’s going to be finalized and he can start playing football again. There’s two clubs in particular that are serious.”
