Despite seeing their Premier Soccer League stay coming to an end in just one season, the relegated Jomo Cosmos seems to have more woes off the field.
AfricanFootball.com has been informed that midfielder Thabang Monare is owed money by Ezenkosi.
According to information on this website's news desk, Monare has it that the club owes him a signing on fee and his June salary.
Rumours suggest that the player is owed roughly R300 000.00.
'Desh' was a dominant feature in Ezenkosi's line-up as they tried to rescue their PSL status, but has been linked with a move to Bidvest Wits for the new campaign.
"I don't want to talk about this - they owe my signing on fee and they haven't paid me my June salary," said Monare.
"I tried calling the club, Mr (Jomo) Sono and I haven't got any response thus far.
"Everytime I tried to call to understand why, I'm sent from pillar to post and I don't know."

This website made attempts to reach the player's agent, Mirko Agnelli of WA Sports and he confirms that the player is owed money.
"I understand that he has not been paid his June salary and some monies which were due to him in January," said Agnelli.
"He was supposed to be paid at the end of June but nothing is happening so far.
"We have not received any explanation from the club's boss, (Jomo) Sono and we are now exploring the idea of going to the PSL's Disciplinary and Resolution Chamber (DRC).
"Look, I can't really comment on his future now, let's leave it there."
Monare featured 23 times for the Potchefstroom-based National First Division-bound side last season.
