Chippa United technical advisor Vladislav Heric has revealed that he has settled his matter with his former employers Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila and that his case against them is a thing of the past.
Heric took TTM to FIFA for ‘breach of contract’ after then owner Masala Mulaudzi failed to pay him for six months and also terminating his contract without a valid explanation.
Heric was placed on ‘special leave’ and later fired prior to Mulaudzi purchasing the top division status from Bidvest Wits before selling it to current owner Abram Sello.
The Serbian mentor took the matter to the football’s world governing body demanding over R6 million for unfair dismissal.
“The fact that I worked at TTM and ended up going to arbitration is not good for both me and them but there is nothing between me and TTM now because it’s a new owner and that man did nothing wrong to me, so that point I have no issues,” Heric told the media ahead of the historic Nedbank Cup final against his former side taking place on Saturday in Bloemfontein.
“But it does not mean I am not going to go all out to try and win this game and beat them. Not with the extra motivation because it’s TTM, it can be whoever, Real Madrid I will still try and win this final for all of us.
“It’s not like I am bitter or I have something to prove, there is nothing like that. I will come out and do my job as much as I can. The FIFA things have been called off and this thing is stored now and my lawyer sort all of these things out and we are okay,” added Heric.
The final between TTM and Chippa takes place on Saturday at Free State Stadium, starting at 18:00.
