New TTM boss talks Buhle, Oupa


New Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila chairman Abram Sello has revealed more regarding the situations of Buhle Mkhwanazi and Oupa Manyisa.

Mkhwanazi is refusing to join the Limpopo club and wants his clearance following the sale of Bidvest Wits to TTM, which has now undergone a second ownership change.

According to reports, the towering defender is not prepared to accept the salary cut suggested by previous owner Lawrence Mulaudzi, who has since sold the status to Sello.

Manyisa, meanwhile, has taken his case to the PSL and is seeking a reported settlement in the region of R2-million.

"Mkhwanazi's case is on. I can't tell you much because the lawyers are busy with that but it's under control," Sello tells

"Manyisa is also in front of the DC. I can't divulge and it's under control with the legal people appointed to do that. He's got his own legal people, we've got our own legal guys who are busy with that.

"It's been tough and it's still going on so I can't say much on that."

Asked if there was a possibility of ironing out their differences with Manyisa and bringing him back to the club, Sello gave no answer.

"You know what, in leadership you don't want to take all the decision-making upon yourself... that's where we blunder in terms of management and leadership. Remember it's a team," he says.

"There's nothing wrong with Oupa coming back to the team, it will depend on the outcome of the case. Remember the case may come out in different ways, settlement with no contract or settlement with contract."

Sello also confirmed that he has been sorting out the issues of outstanding salaries owed to a number of players.

"With salaries I'm very much happy. I'm a businessman, I've been in business for the past 30, 40 years and I know what is commitment to someone's salary. What's the impact on his life, family, relatives, himself...

"We sat down from the beginning and spoke to the players in the handover and told them bygones are bygones, and we going to sort those ones out gradually as we go in per arrangement between employee and the employer.

"That is in place now and the players are happy. For a start, January I made sure that nobody came to the office and said, 'Hey I didn't receive my salary.' All of them. And that's the standard we want to keep."
