No settlement in McCarthy, Birds case
Posted: 17 September 2008 Time: 1:27 pm
The relationship between defender Fabian McCarthy and Moroka Swallows remains deadlocked after both parties failed to reach a settlement in their contractual dispute meeting yesterday.
McCarthy is said to have signed a two-year contract with Swallows, but now it emerges that he is not happy about certain conditions.
Swallows boss Leon Prins has confirmed the meeting with McCarthy yesterday, but refused to talk about the outcome of the meeting.
“Yes, we met with the player yesterday, but I am not prepared to discuss with the media what happened in our meeting.”
McCarthy’s manager at Prosport International, Francisco Ferreri also refused to talk about the outcome of their meeting saying that it was up to Swallows to make their own comment regarding the case.
However, sources close to Swallows claim that Prins has told McCarthy that they are not prepared to change anything in his contract and expect him to honour his two-year deal signed last month.
The source says McCarthy has requested another meeting with Swallows next week, but in the meantime will continue training with the team.
