The reason why the three players were suspended in the first place has never been disclosed by the club.

The trio have now terminated their contracts ahead of a scheduled disciplinary hearing, thought to be due to the non-payment of salaries for over three months.

According to the South African Football Players Union spokesperson Calvin Motloung, the players have now approached the league demanding payment of their outstanding salaries.

“We wrote a letter to the club to give them 10 days to pay the players their outstanding salaries before they suspended them,” Motloung told Kickoff.

“The issue here is surrounding nothing else but money owed to the players.

“It’s very disturbing that after the players started to demand their money be paid, they were suspended.

“The players have been owed money for around seven or eight months. According to FIFA rules, if a player is not paid his salary for a period of two months, he is free to terminate his contract.

“The players have since terminated their contracts with the club and we have taken the matter to DRC regarding the money owed to them,” confirmed Motloung.

Migne listed extraordinary details of what goes on behind closed doors at the club.
