Fired coach owed three months' salary

One of the coaches that was shown the door by his former club last week is planning to take legal action against his former bosses.

Three coaches in the Absa Premiership have been dismissed recently at Black Leopards, AmaZulu and Chippa United.

In the GladAfrica Championship there have also been several changes. Free State Stars, Royal Eagles, Real Kings and Swallows FC have all changed coaches since the start of the season.

But it is Moma Medic who is in contact with his lawyer regarding his sacking at Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila last week.

Medic's contract with TTM was terminated for failing to field the required number of players who are under the age of 23, as per NFD rules.

The former Orlando Pirates assistant coach, who claims to be owed three months' salary by the Limpopo side, tells KickOff.com he could not hold a press conference because he was moving house from Limpopo to Johannesburg.

"You know all these things depend on the lawyer. We agreed to not make any kind of statement before we sit together with my agent, lawyer and me," Medic says.

"We will discuss everything and make a strategy for the future. And in that case I don't want to give any kind of statements or comments... I'm trying to do my job to the best of me and we deserve at least a moment...

"But definitely they [TTM] are coming out with the statement to say they've cancelled the contract without me, but they forget they did not pay the three salaries and my bonuses for the playoffs [last season], and we gave them the two letters before they started this case."

TTM have made a decent start to the season with seven points from four matches and are in fifth place on the table, four points behind leaders JDR Stars.
