'PSL Should Have Protected Aces Players'

There will be a new club in the PSL next season, but what it will be called, nobody knows yet. It used to go by the name of Mpumalanga Black Aces. Since the selling of the club to John Comitis and its subsequent relocation to Cape Town, there have been more questions than answers. To top it all off, stories have now emerged over the non-payment of players. The supporters see this as unacceptable.

The whole affair has largely been viewed with suspicion, particularly for the people of Mpumalanga, who have been robbed of their PSL team. It was also revealed, in this week's Editor's Column in Soccer Laduma, that some players have been left high and dry during the purchase of the club, and some ex-players have been left without being paid.

"The PSL is not a professional institute. They copy the English style, why don't they copy the English policy of buying and selling clubs?" –Nkokoane

"Ah poor guys, I feel sorry for them. PSL must stand up for players and make sure their previous owners pay every cent promised to them." – Thobaldo

"The PSL was not supposed to approve this deal until all stakeholders (players included) were paid their money." – Sithole14

It is a strange situation, because the new owner probably has no obligation to pay players he did not hire, and the old owners probably have very little obligation to pay players no longer under their hire.

The real losers here are the players and the families who depend on their income.

What should be done about this? What should the PSL do? Who should pay the players?
