Galaxy to pay 'Downs R1 million to play Makgalwa


TS Galaxy FC chairman Tim Sukazi says the club will have to fork out a fine of an R1million if they were to use Keletso Makgalwa against parent club Mamelodi Sundowns.

Makgalwa is on loan at the Johannesburg-based Mpumalanga province club until the end of the season, and as a result, have a clause preventing the player from facing his parent club.

Sundowns have a clause barring their loaned players from playing against them.

"As the loaning club soon after the conclusion of that deal you will have to make sure that your coaches are well aware, they keep in mind such that when that day comes to play against that particular club that player is not utilised," Sukazi tells KickOff.

"So, what Sundowns would have, Cape Town City, SuperSport United or any other club, they will have a punitive clause in the form of the prescribed amount.

"If we play Keletso against Sundowns 'by mistake' there will be an R1million fee that is payable to Sundowns for that 'error', and I think it would be indefensible."
