“The last salary I received, as well as the players, was last January. And imagine this beautiful story that qualification takes place despite the players not receiving bonuses and salaries.”
According to TimesLive website, other technical team members, consisting of fellow South African technical team members — Kabelo Rangoaga, Musi Matlaba, Kyle Solomon and Maahier Davids – have not also received their salaries in recent months.
