Roggert Nyundu reveals R5 000 salary at Polokwane City

Posted: 26 June 2015 Time: 12:14

Polokwane City striker Roggert Nyundu says he has no desire to return to the club where he is paid R5 000 monthly and is hoping to find a new employer.

Nyundu – who was loaned to Black Leopards last season and scored 18 goals in 17 games for Lidoda Duvha in all competitions – raised his profile with a winning goal against Kaizer Chiefs in last season’s Nedbank Cup.

The 27-year-old reveals in today’s Sowetan that he is one of the lowest paid PSL players.
 
“They [Polokwane City] did not respect me as a player and I don’t want to go there on July 1 [when they open for pre-season]. I used to live at the clubhouse [in Soetdoring], on the outskirts of Polokwane and it is like a camp for the under-12s,” he says.

“It is far from town and difficult to go there if you don’t have a car … I pray that God makes the chairman of City let me go so I can find a club that will allow me to provide for my family.”
 
Polokwane City chairman Johnny Mogaladi says he won’t discuss his players’ salaries.
 
“I’m not here to discuss a player’s contract on the phone. I won’t discuss how much he is getting or how much other players are getting paid,” he tells the newspaper.
 
In the past, a proposal by the South African Football Players’ Union required that players in the PSL should earn at least R15 000 a month.
