SAFPU issue positive Royal AM update


The South African Football Players Union (SAFPU) have provided an update on a meeting held between DStv Premiership side Royal AM and its squad regarding unpaid salaries.

The KwaZulu-Natal-based side found itself embroiled in a public spat after several players claimed that they had not been paid.

According to reports some of the players were also not provided with accommodation by the club.

Speaking to, SAFPU president Tholaganyo Gaoshubelwe revealed that an agreement had been reached between the affected players and the club.

"On Thursday we had a follow-up meeting and there were a number of outstanding requirements that were met," Gaoshubelwe said.

"We then agreed that we would probably continue monitoring the situation, and will see what has been done and what has not.

"But I can confirm that there are players who have received salaries, those who were short paid, the outstanding balance has been paid.

"We are still checking who else hasn't been paid because we can only know once they tell us. There are those who have agreed to settlements, who have agreed to leave, and they are also getting their August salaries.

"With regards to the issue of accommodation, they would have agreed in terms of the approach, because the team would assist them to look for accommodation, those who do not necessarily want to stay within the compound."
