FIFA Transfer Ban Remains As R3m Payment Plan Rejected

After being banned by the world’s football governing body FIFA, financial problems seem to be escalating for a PSL club after their proposed R3 million payment plan was rejected.

As revealed by the Siya crew, Bloemfontein Celtic were slapped with a transfer ban by FIFA, this after a contractual dispute involving Patrick Tignyemb, who is the club’s former player with 11 years of service in Mangaung.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland ruled in favour of the experienced Cameroonian goalkeeper last year in his case of unfair dismissal and ordered Celtic to pay him R3 million.

The Siya crew has learnt that the Free State club suggested a plan to pay the money in monthly instalments, but their proposal has been rejected.


A document rejecting the proposal from Siwelele to pay in instalments has been seen by the Siya crew and reads, in part:

With the implications that the conclusion of an agreement between the parties will automatically lead to the closure of disciplinary proceedings” (cf. FIFA Circular n° 1628 sent on 9 May 2018) and that any claim resulting from the breach of any possible agreement signed by the parties will have to be lodged before the Players’ Status Committee or Dispute Resolution Chamber, as applicable, or before the competent bodies at national or international level mutually agreed by the parties, the Claimant hereby states categorically that he is not willing or interested in entering into any agreement with the Respondent. We therefore inform all parties that the payment plan proposal is rejected.
