It has been confirmed to the Siya crew that new Absa Premiership club Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila has paid the outstanding salaries to Atusaye Nyondo to avoid FIFA sanction.
Last night, TTM confirmed completing the purchase of the topflight status of Bidvest Wits, which will enable them to move up from the GladAfrica Championship to the elite league for the beginning of next season.
The Limpopo club had earlier been taken to FIFA by Nyondo through the help of the South African Football Players Union (SAFPU) for alleged unpaid salaries. Nyondo had a stint with TTM from the beginning of last year to the end of the season, though the Malawian international claimed that he signed a one-and-a-half-year contract with the club when he joined.
“Atusaye Nyondo has been resolved after a settlement amount was paid on the 4th of June 2020. We had no choice but to pay him as per instruction by FIFA even though he never kicked a ball at TTM. Nyondo didn't fit into the coach’s plans hence we let him go,” TTM’s communications and marketing manager Tshidino Ndou confirmed to the Siya crew.
SAFPU President Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe confirmed the latest happenings at the Limpopo outfit.
“We had won a case just before going into the lockdown – against the very same TTM – of Atusaye Nyondo. We had given them 45 days to comply with the award, and I can tell you that their deadline was on the 4th of June. Indeed, on the 4th of June they complied and they paid everything that’s owed to Atusaye Nyondo. However, there are a few players that they still owe that they need to do right with,” confirmed Gaoshubelwe.
