Local football agent, Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi of Rush Hour Sports Management, has met with controversial Ghanaian defender Edwin Gyimah to warn him about his recent actions.
As reported by the Siya crew, Mulovhedzi recently issued an apology to Black Leopards after Gyimah went AWOL, following the Limpopo team’s last match of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season against Mamelodi Sundowns on September 05.
“After speaking to Edwin Gyimah on the weekend, I have realised that the guy really needs help. He’s got anger issues and that is his biggest problem and downfall. He tends to be emotional. He called me fuming and raised his voice to me but I told him to never ever do that again, and in the end I managed to calm him down and we had a very good chat,” Mulovhedzi told the Siya crew.
“I am grateful to Black Leopards for giving Gyimah a chance to play football when he struggled to get a club. The rumours doing the rounds that Gyimah is on a small salary at Leopards are not true. The guy is on good money and it’s just that I can’t reveal the figures now. He had his salary increased by 120%. I have decided that I won’t give up on him. I told him that it wasn’t a good thing for him to go to the media and spoke the way he did about the club. If he really wanted to leave the club he should have told me first and I would have helped him,” said the intermediary.
“I always mention that he was there for me during my struggle in my early days as the players’ agent and he used to help me a lot when he was with SuperSport United. So, he is the player that I am willing to help with all of my heart. He is a very good and hardworking player. I was working on getting him a team in Kuwait but unfortunately he has a problem with his attitude. I have advised him to work on that. I have advised him to refrain from making reckless remarks in the media because in doing that he is shooting himself in the foot. I have advised him that as I will be working on getting him a club but he should first apologise to Black Leopards for whatever he said in the media about them. Talking bad about the club is not how to fix things,” he said.
“I heard through the media that he had signed a contract extension with Leopards, before his relationship with the club turned sour. He and the club were both wrong for signing without me but I won’t dwell on that now but he is not doing himself any favour by badmouthing the club in the media. I reminded him about what happened at Pirates when he wanted to beat coach Muhsin Ertugral at the airport and I reminded him about what happened at Wits when he had a clash with the other players. I told him that his way of doing things is not working and that he should change his mentality and stop threatening people,” the representative concluded.
