Johnny Ferreira has rejoined Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila after parting ways with Black Leopards this week. Ferreira had joined Leopards from TTM only two months ago, but has returned amidst all the turmoil.
TTM’s future seems to be in a different province, they are now in Limpopo, but the latest news is that they may be based in Bloemfontein, and reportedly be renamed Bloemfontein Celtic.
The so-called real owner Shawn Mkhize is said to have bailed out a cash strapped club and has allegedly paid players the money owed to them by caretaker owner Lawrence Mulaudzi.
Mamkhize is said to be also worried about the club’s poor results lately and wants to save the club from relegation, and then in the new season relocate them to Mangaung in the Free State. The current arrangement with Mulaudzi has brought disaster as the latter is apparently financially broke and cannot keep the club as a going concern anymore. The club has been banned from signing players for three consecutive window periods.
On the other side Mamkhize side Royal AM are also in trouble for breaching striker Samir Nurkovic’s contract of two years and an option. The former Kaizer Chiefs marksman who has not earned a cent, nor played a game for the KwaZulu-Natal side took his non-compliance by the club to FIFA to get the money due to him. With the football mother body striving to maintain international relations, trouble will be brewing for the cash strapped side and may face the same fate befallen to their so-called sister club TTM.
Adding to this, the former TTM coach is behind bars, while the club is battling for results and has yet to register a point since returning from the world cup break, the situation has worsened. Coach Lucky Nelukau got arrested and is behind bars after being charged for assault and has been denied bail.
Meanwhile TTM as reported earlier is set to relocate. They are playing their last fixture at Thohoyandou Stadium and word is they will play most of the second round at Mangaung in Bloemfontein.
