Update: Thuso Phala & SuperSport Settlement

Sources have told the Siya crew that Thuso Phala’s settlement with SuperSport United is imminent.

The club was expected to conclude those negotiations with the winger on Friday after it had become clear that Phala would not be their player beyond this season – his contract expires in June.

Phala escaped a disciplinary hearing in January for off-the-field issues, although CEO Stan Matthews, who made it clear in the media recently that the player had no future at SuperSport, said the details of the suspension were confidential.

It is understood that the club wants to give Phala a proper send off because of his contribution to their success in the years that he has been with Matsatsantsa.

Phala, 32, is currently training with the Multichoice Diski team (reserve side) and will continue to do so until his contract expires in June. Talks to go on loan during the January transfer window did not materialise. 

According to sources, this could be part of the compromise between the two parties in order to help the player keep fit ahead of finding a new club for the 2019/20 campaign beginning July.

Phala, according to Matthews, is SuperSport’s highest paid player.
