Dikwena In Trouble For Defender?
Platinum Stars To Part Ways With Defender
The representatives of Platinum Stars’ Rofhiwa Tshikovhi have threatened to take the legal route against the club.
Tshikovhi is no longer in the plans at Stars and according to the defender’s representatives from Rush Hour Sports Management, Dikwena is allegedly backtracking from its contractual obligations.
The player’s agent, Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi, confirmed in edition 1027 of Soccer Laduma that Stars want to release the 28-year-old player.
“The problem I have with Platinum Stars regarding Rofhiwa Tshikovhi is that Mr Mazingiza is undermining me. It’s something that has been going on for a long time. Platinum Stars owes Tshikovhi his signing-on fee from the agreement we have with the club when the player’s contract was renewed.
“Now that there are other players that joined the club after him, and were not paid signing-on fees, the club is backtracking. Whenever I try to engage with Mr Mazingiza, he is not co-operating. He once called me and said he wanted to see me. I drove all the way from Limpopo to Johannesburg to meet him and, when I got there, he told me he was too busy to meet me. He told me to go back. Can you imagine how much I spent on petrol for going there to do nothing?
“Now the club wants to release Tshikovhi. That’s not a problem for us, but they must pay him out of his contract. Tshikovhi is a good player and we’ll get him a club. Any failure by the club to pay the player what is due to him, I will be taking the legal route against them,” said Mulovhedzi.
Mazingiza declined to comment on allegations made by Mulovhedzi.
