DRC busy with Mthembu case


After three previous postponements, the PSL Dispute Resolution Committee is currently meeting on the issue of the former Maritzburg City youngster.

Mthembu, who appeared for Amakhosi in the Vodacom Challenge and is refusing to join the Pirates squad to whom he is registered for the current season.

Both clubs lay claims to having the midfielder’s signature, with the player himself favouring Chiefs.

Chiefs’ team manager Bobby Motaung told KickOff.com earlier that the youngster, whose talent has been described as ‘exceptional’, signed a three-year deal with Amakhosi after training with them last year, but it is understood that Mthembu had also signed a pre-contract with Pirates.

Maritzburg City’s owner Bongi Hlophe told KickOff.com at the time that Mthembu was cleared to Bucs at the end of last season.

The PSL has set aside time until Saturday to resolve the case.
