Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC manager Joel Masutha has dismissed claims by the South African Football Players Union that they owe salaries to players.
SAFPU vice-president Tebogo Monyai told KickOff.com the union is trying to set up a meeting with the National First Division outfit after being approached by players from the club.
TTM players are alleged to have threatened to go on strike before their last league game against Ubuntu Cape Town FC at Thohoyandou Stadium on November 4.
"There is the issue of players from TTM that have approached the union because of the unpaid salaries," said Monyai.
"We are trying to set a meeting with the club to resolve that issue. It's very sad that there are still teams that don't respect players. Every employee deserves payment for services rendered to a company and players are no exception."
Masutha, however, insists all is well within their camp.
"All is well in the club. All the players are in camp and everybody has been paid his salary," said Masutha.
"There were issues of settlement with players which had their contracts terminated. The club has also handled that very well. Players were paid settlement fees and handed with their clearance certificates."
