It seems like all is not well at Tim Sukazi’s TS Galaxy, as reports of unpaid salaries surface.

Farpost reported that their mid-season trip to Turkey, where they played a few friendlies during the World Cup break was partly financed with 10% of the players’ salaries.

Fast forward to February 2023, some players and technical staff members have not been paid their salaries, despite the club managing to buy a Hollywoodbets Super League status for their ladies team.

“Some of us were not back paid our two months’ salaries. We’re owed from last year in January and February,” a senior player told FARPost.

“Sadly, Tim Sukazi [club president] has decided not to address us on the issue. We get paid on the 28th or 29th, and it’s almost two weeks after payday, and we’re in the dark.

“Some players’ rentals the club should pay aren’t paid.”

Rivaldo Coetzee also made an appearance from the bench in the latter stages of the game, showing glimpses of his class.

In another Nedbank Cup game, Marumo Gallants, who are facing the dreaded drop in the Dstv Premiership, also booked themselves a cosy spot in the last 16 with a 3-1 victory over Magesi FC.

Bahlabane Ba Ntwa’s goals were scored by Letsie Koapeng, Judas Moseamedi, and Tebogo Thangwane.

If only they could turn this victory into three points in the league. A last sixteen spot is no fun if you are number sixteen on the log.
