Former Roses United midfielder, Thabang Sefatsa, is the man claiming that he is allegedly owed money by the club. Sefatsa is a former South African footballer, who disclosed that he was diagnosed with HIV in 2013.

Following his retirement from playing football at the age of 34, Sefatsa was employed as a physiotherapist at Roses.

“I worked at Roses United as the club’s physio. We were in the Vodacom (ABC Motsepe) League at the time. I struggled to get my full salary at the club. That happened until the club got promoted to the NFD,” Sefatsa told the Siya crew.

“The Players Union (SAFPU) is aware of my situation as I reported the matter to them. But there has been no progress made regarding the case. I am owed money in the region of R220 000. It’s the money I worked for. It was supposed to be paid to me by Mr Max Tshabalala who was in charge of things at the club at the time,” he added.

“It’s sad because I never received a full salary at the club. It’s not like I was earning a lot of money. I was earning less than R10 000 – just R9 000 and that is nothing. Sometimes I would get half of that and sometimes get nothing. I was renting somewhere and I was later evicted. I lost everything,” concluded Sefatsa.

SAFPU have responded to the allegations made by Sefatsa, and have confirmed their involvement in the matter, as it can be read in edition 1056 of Soccer Laduma.
