Zongo Apologises To Chippa

Masibusane Zongo has written a letter of apology to Chippa United for going Awol after a game against Orlando Pirates last season.

Zongo was not happy with his lack of game time at the club and took the decision to remain behind in Johannesburg, as the rest of the team flew back to Cape Town after clinching a 1-0 victory over the Buccaneers.

In a subsequent interview with Soccer-Laduma, the 23-year-old revealed that he had stayed behind on purpose and would not have returned to the club.

Zongo has now sent a letter of apology to Chippa United, of which a copy is in the Siya crew’s possession.

The letter reads, “It is indeed true that I acted in a manner that jeopardized my relations with my employer (Chippa United FC) when I left the club without notice after the game against Pirates on 30 April 2013.

“It is also regrettable that I went to the media and spoke negatively about the club, the intention was not to put Chippa United FC into disrepute nor was it to embarrass the club, at the time I thought I was communicating how I feel, something I have lived to regret to this day. According to proper procedure I should have set (sic) down with my employer and discussed my dissatisfaction instead of involving the media.

“For all the issues stated above I would like to send my deepest apologies. I understand that Chippa United gave me a chance when no one wanted to touch me and for this I will always be grateful. If only I could take back all that went wrong but unfortunately all I can do now is to send my deepest and heartfelt apology. Hope my apology receives acceptance.”

Meanwhile the club’s Chief Operations Officer, Peter Koutroulis, told the Siya crew that the club is looking to help the player.

He said, “Our chairman wants to help the boy and also to contribute to his bail application, because it is the policy of Chippa United to help players on and off the field.”
