Wits senior players to go on strike
Bidvest Wits senior players threaten to go on strike if they don’t get their futures straightened out.
In the same week, the resumption of local football is set to take place, with the return of the Nedbank Cup things seemed to be in turmoil.
Having been acquired by Musala Mulaudzi recently, The Johannesburg based outfit faces a complex situation as the sale was not seen as a positive by the entire squad.
According to Soccerladuma, the players were seemingly unhappy with the way the club was sold, how it was communicated to the players, and the expectations from the club going forward.
The senior players of the club have reportedly requested to meet with Club chairman Alan Fainman today. The group aims to resolve whatever worries they may have and hopefully find a way forward after TTM expressed their inability to keep the club’s highest earners, most notably, Coach Gavin Hunt, along with any player who will decide against moving to Venda in the new season.
Wits COO Jonathan Schloss has come out however and expressed that the club’s management knows nothing of this notion.
“As management, we have not heard anything and that is all we can say on the matter,” Schloss said.
“While there is a definite threat of some players going on strike, the outcome of today’s proposed meeting will ultimately decide matters going forward.”
