Max Pays R2.5 million For Roses United!

The latest with the Roses United saga is that former owner, Samuel ‘Max’ Tshabalala, has paid R2.5 million to a Polokwane Law Firm, Pogrund and Legodi, together with another amount, which now allows him to effectively repossess his team from the current registered chairman, Sinky Mnisi.

However, the Bloemfontein-based Tshabalala still has a mountain to climb with regards to getting his show back on the road, especially at this mid-season stage.

While he might have done the right thing by paying outstanding DRC claims as per the PSL constitution which will bring joy to many unpaid players, the flamboyant character must now wait for approval from the Executive Committee.

“The league will have to approve two things, the re-transfer and relocation,” says Mnisi’s lawyer Michael Murphy. ’Max’ thinks he can just pick up the phone say, ‘it’s my club, come back to Bloemfontein’ but it’s not as simple as that. Many years ago with the Thanda Royal Zulu debacle you had a multi-billionaire wanting to put money into the game. Everybody wanted the deal to go through but the league approved the transfer not the relocation as it was mid-season.”

Other crucial issues such as what’s going to happen to the current crop of players plus those training in Bloemfontein, needs to be ironed out.

“As a matter of law, the rules say that you’ve got to comply with all their contracts. A club is like a living thing, you have to take it back with all those players unless of course, some want to leave,” concludes Murphy.
