In fear of Kaizer Chiefs’ FIFA transfer ban, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila has terminated the contract of one of the club’s new signings.
According to Gustavo Paez, the Venezuelan forward, was offered a deal by TTM and announced by the club. After arriving at the club two weeks ago, TTM have since backtracked on the deal.
“They (TTM) say they don’t want to risk by requesting for my TPO (Third-Party Ownership) from FIFA. I terminated my contract with my previous club (Mineros de Guayana) because they were owing me eight months’ (salary). I followed all the legal processes and I gave them the 15 days that FIFA suggested but they never co-operated and never contacted my lawyer. After the 15 days period I terminated my contract. TTM say they don’t want to risk and ask for my clearance because of the problem Kaizer Chiefs had (with FIFA regarding the signing of Andriamirado Andrianarimanana, who was previously with Fosa Juniors FC of Madagascar). They don’t want a problem like that,” Paez told the Siya crew.
“I tried to prove to them (TTM) that it wasn’t a similar situation and I showed them all the documents from Venezuela (Football Federation) but I don’t know what’s happening with TTM. I am in touch with them (Venezuela Football Federation) and they told me that the team (TTM) just has to make the request and they will send everything that they need,” the ex-Chiefs player added.
The 30-year-old says he has since received his clearance on Thursday afternoon from Venezuela, though he had already been sent a termination letter from TTM at midnight on Wednesday via WhatsApp.
The Siya crew has seen the termination letter sent to the player by TTM's CEO, Sello Chokoe.
