Bidvest Wits players not paid full salaries for September

accreditation

Wits no longer exists after the club's PSL status was sold to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila but players are still due their wages after working in August and September.

Limpopo-based TTM was set to take over The Clever Boys in July but the deal was delayed after the league only finished in September due to lockdown.

South African Football Players' Union deputy general secretary Calvin Motloung has confirmed that the problem of unpaid salaries at Wits has been brought to their attention.

"Yes, the issue has been brought to our attention. What the players have been paid is not even half of their salaries. We will deal the matter tomorrow after getting all the details," Motloung tells KickOff.com.

Efforts to get hold of Wits CEO Ronnie Schloss proved futile after he failed to pick up our calls.

According to some of the Wits players, they are worried about debit orders that have to go through at the end of this month.

"Everything took us by surprise. At least if we could have been told earlier, we could have made other plans. This is unfair," says one player who wanted to remain anonymous.

"Is this the best way they want to reward us for the hard efforts we put on the field to finish the league in a better position? We have approached the Players' Union to try to help us get our salaries for this month."
