TTM Chairman clarifies medals issue


Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila chairman Abram Sello insists there is no confusion over the allocation of Nedbank Cup medals for their players.

This comes as FARPost revealed earlier this week that the players have opted to return their Championship medals to the club in solidarity with other players that were excluded from the allocation.

The 20 players who were part of the match day squad against Chippa last Saturday have told the club that they will only take their winners medals if the team also provide for the rest of their teammates.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of their trophy parade in Polokwane on Thursday, Sello says there was a misunderstanding of how the allocation of medals works.

“We have the medals with us, if you look at the news today, the PSL put a statement so let me not comment after my superiors,” said Sello.

“They have said it that it was a misinterpretation which has happened. I don’t want to extend what my organization has actually said. So it’s very clear the medals are with us,” he said.

The TTM players and staff were not wearing the medals during the homecoming ceremony on Thursday and Sello confirmed that the medals are in the hands of the Management.

“The medals are in the hands of the management, PSL explained in the statement clearly as to how they allocate them. That was for the presentation during the celebration. It is very clear, we have satisfied everybody and our family, that’s the TTM family,” explained Sello.
