Zungu accused the Glamour Boys of ‘tapping’ star AmaZulu midfielder Siyethemba Sithebe up before they could legally do so and has since sensationally threatened Kaizer Motaung and company.
Sithebe who entered into his final six months of his contract at AmaZulu has since been banished by Usuthu however he remains under contract until the end of the season.
Zungu has confirmed that should Kaizer Chiefs try to lure Sithebe to Naturena before his contract is up, despite being written off by Usuthu, then AmaZulu will be taking the legal route to sort the matter out!
AmaZulu boss threatens Kaizer Chiefs with LAWSUIT!
“Kaizer Chiefs weren’t honest in the deal because they agreed terms without the January window being opened in signing a pre-contract.” AmaZulu president Sandile Zungu said as quoted by SunSport.
“In December when we were on holiday, they had completed everything with him and you know the window is only open on 1 January. I told Bobby Motaung (Amakhosi’s football manager) that I’m not happy at all about this.
“Yes, Sithebe is going to Kaizer Chiefs if they have concluded everything with him or at the very least at the end of the season. If they want to take him now, we inform them that this is what we want. And we still reserve our rights to take legal actions to the highest court.
“He won’t wear the Usuthu jersey again in the second half of the season. That’s shows we are not very happy about the way he’s leaving the club. This one exploded and it smells bad, and the reason for that is because of his agent and the club (Kaizer Chiefs) that wanted him.”
Siyethemba Sithebe has eight goals and nine assists in 132 appearances at AmaZulu. The midfielder is valued at R12.5 million meaning if Kaizer Chiefs want him immediately, the price must be paid to AmaZulu.
