Botswana Premier League (BPL) giants Mochudi Centre Chiefs have confirmed that they are struggling to pay their players.
Chiefs players reportedly recently refused to train due to their outstanding salaries and this has also affected the team's performance in the BPL this season.
“We are broke, we don’t have money," Chiefs spokesperson, Clifford Mogomotsi told Mmegi.
"Like in the past, we can only cry out to Good Samaritans. The response is promising, but there is nothing yet," he continued.
“We have no sound financial backing. We continue to talk to Good Samaritans. Our wage bill is one of the highest (in the league).
"A club like Chiefs cannot run without a sponsor. It is a fact that we cannot run away from,” Mogomotsi added.
Chiefs will take on Gaborone United in a league match at the Molepolole Sports Complex in Molepolole on Sunday.
