Masutha responds to TTM strike claims


Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila head coach Joel Masutha has rubbished reports that some of the club's players have recently refused to train due to owed salaries.

According to Masutha, players have been working hard the whole week at training concentrating on today's DStv Premiership encounter against AmaZulu.

"There has never been a toyi-toyi here," Masutha tells

"On Sunday we had a game in PE, we came back on Monday. Everyone is here. You know the guys are okay, they are not even focused on any other thing.

"They are only focused on what is going to happen on the field of play. The mood is good. Everyone is raring to go."

'Moporofita' admits they will be facing a tough battle against Usuthu at Thohoyandou Stadium (15h30).

"There is no guaranteed three points, they've also signed well. I think they also played well against Cape Town City, even the game they lost against Sundowns they did very well," he says.

"It's just that sometimes you can do well and still not win the match. So we are not even looking down upon them, it's going to be a humdinger of a match.

"We know they will fight. When the game needs physicality they can bring that to the table. We need to bring our A game because we also don't want to drop points at home."
