Arrows Let Go Of ‘High Earner’ Zothwane

Ntlantla Zothwane is the latest player to leave Golden Arrows due to budget constraints, as the club prepares for life in the National First Division.

The Durban side are at the risk of losing most of their senior players, most notably Thanduyise Khuboni, Mzivukile Tom and younger Bonginkosi Ntuli, due to the high salaries they were earning when the club was in the PSL. Now the Vanderbijlpark-born midfielder has confirmed that he is on his way out, after spending eight seasons at the club.

He made his professional debut in the 2006/07 season and initially lived on the shadow of elder brother Papi Zothwane, whose scintillating skills endeared him to fans across the country.

Zothwane jnr started six league games in the 2012/13 campaign due to injury and only made three starts last season, and should be disappointed with his lack of progress recently.

It is not yet clear what the way forward is for the 27-year-old, but he told the Siya crew, “Yes, I am not going to be part of the team next season, but I’m still going to meet with Arrows because we only discussed things over the phone. I think we will meet next week."

"I still had a contract with the club, but with the team having gone down, there were going to be some complications with the money. Obviously we’ll now have to sit down and talk, but there’s no bad blood between me and the club.”
