The latest news on the crisis, which has enveloped National First Division side Roses United, is that all their future fixtures could be postponed while former owner Samuel "Max" Tshabalala assembles a new team.
On the weekend, Tshabalala told Soccer-Laduma that he was going to give an ultimatum to current owner, Sinky Mnisi, to pay the R4-million owing or else their deal would be off.
Subsequent to that, the controversial Mnisi was given 24 hours from mid-day yesterday (Monday) to pay the money into the PSL coffers, but ultimately failed to meet the deadline.
"The deal is off," Tshabalala confirmed. "Despite a letter of demand he hasn't paid, doesn't have the money. We met Professor Ronnie Schloss and Derek Blackensee, who asked us to write a formal letter so I can be given a chance to come up with a team. This has been done, we've advised them to stop our games for now."
Earlier this season, about 27 Marosa players lost their jobs when Mnisi took ownership and replaced them with his Safa Second Division Vardos' squad.
It is believed that many of these former Bloemfontein-based players are still owed money whereas Mnisi's group are allegedly in the same boat.
