Former Ugandan international striker and skipper Geoffrey Massa has reportedly hauled his former South African club Bloemfontein Celtic to the Premier Soccer League Dispute Resolution Chamber.
Massa has approached the PSL DRC for unpaid monies by his former bosses totaling R400 000 since leaving the club in 2016.
Massa said he is owed R400 000 by Siwelele and according to his legal representative, Keith McAdam of Lee and McAdam Attorneys, he wants the club to account.
The Cranes legend joined Phunya Sele Sele on July 29, 2015, and when his contract was terminated a year later, Celtic reportedly agreed to pay the Ugandan a settlement of R600 000 on or before August 30, 2016.
It is reported by Kick-Off that the payment was to be made in instalments, the first of which was R200 000 and being paid together with his July salary on or before July 31, 2016.
Moreover, the second instalment of R400 000 that was due on or before August 31, 2016 with an additional fee of R20 000 paid to his representative as an agency fee on or before July 31, 2016, has not been paid to the player.
The club’s failure to honour the agreement has forced the player to consider taking a legal route and approached the league to intervene.
