As always FARPost is keeping track of the latest developments at the respective Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs.
Here is the latest.
Usuthu are still pondering the future of head coach, Jozef Vukusic, who remains on the sidelines after he was suspended by the club. Vukusic was placed on “special leave” last month and according to our source, parting ways with the coach could prove to be difficult, because the club may have to pay him over R1-million, as a settlement.
Meanwhile, the players are awaiting word from management regarding salary cuts, in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak, which the club claims has affected its cash flow.
Furthermore, AmaZulu say they still have plans to take Mabhuti Khenyeza to the PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) for “breach of contract”. Khenyeza, who was an assistant coach, left to take up a job as head coach of GladAfrica Championship side, TS Galaxy.
Lidoda Duvha’s ex winger Thuso Phala has made it clear that he’s not considering retirement. The claims were made by the player’s mother, Susan, who was quoted saying the player wanted to retire after a poor spell at the Limpopo-based club, but the player and his manager Basia Michaels have since released a statement confirming they are searching for a club for Phala.
There are persistent claims that negotiations are ongoing between the club and TS Galaxy boss, Tim Sukazi, over the possible sale of the club. Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala has for years been trying to sell the club due to “financial difficulties”.
The new contract of head coach Pitso Mosimane is still yet to be finalised. Mosimane has insisted that this has nothing to do with the money. The negotiations have however dragged on for months and remains to be seen whether Mosimane would eventually put pen to paper.

Mosimane went to the same high school – Sekano Ntoane High School in Senaoane, Soweto – as SA president, Cyril Ramaphosa.
Matsatsantsa’s long-serving goalkeeper Ronwen Williams has confirmed that he will take over as captain of the club next season. This comes after confirmation that midfielder Dean Furman will leave for the UK at the end of the season. The latter is starting a family in the UK and will search for a new club.
