It is alleged that the club wants to cut the former Kaizer Chiefs youngster’s salary by 50% from the initially agreed amount.

“It’s unfortunate that this thing has got to this point, as it is now in the media. It shouldn’t have gotten to this point. Things involving people’s contracts and salaries should be handled in a better way,” said the source.

“I understand that someone might have gotten too emotional to end up discussing the matter in the media. But, yeah, that’s true, there’s been issues,” concluded the source.

Attempts have been made to get a comment from Leopards regarding the allegations on the 24-year-old player’s contractual matter, however there had been no reply from the club to the Siya crew at the time of publishing the article.
