Tsichlas: Grobbelaar forgot the whole story


Former Mamelodi Sundowns managing director Anastasia Tsichlas has responded to recent claims made by former Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar.

Grobbelaar recently said that in the year 2000 he signed a pre-contract with The Brazilians after being asked to coach the team.

According to the former Liverpool shot-stopper, the Tsichlas family changed their minds and opted for Clemens Westerhof but he got paid for a three-year contract without even coaching the team.

"And so, it was breaking the agreement I had with them. I took them to court. And I got paid three years of the three-year contract without coaching the team once," Grobelaar was quoted as saying.

"This is not what happened, we never changed our mind. He had a big court case overseas and we discovered that. I think he forgot the whole storym" Tsichlas first told KickOff.com via text message.

When contacted to elaborate on the message, the 'Iron lady' replied: "Let me speak first to Angelo, and Maria who was handling the contracts as well, to come back to you. Because I cannot give you the exact details.

"I cannot remember a story like this [laughs]. After so many years you know, I don't want to give you information that is not accurate. So let me speak to Angelo, then we'll talk hey. I don't recall anything like this."

Since September 2 we have been trying to get hold of Tsichlas without any success.
