Johannesburg - A sangoma claims the South African Football Association (SAFA) owes him R90 000 for
providing the "magic" to beat France in the 2010 Soccer World
Cup, the Daily Sun reported on Tuesday.
S'bonelo Madela said Bafana Bafana would not win any matches until he got
his money, hinting he was responsible for the team's failure to go through to
the Africa Cup of Nations finals on Saturday.
"If the national soccer team want to start winning, the SAFA bosses must settle their debt with me first," Madela was
quoted as saying.
SAFA vice-president Mwelo Nonkonyane confirmed it had used Madela's
services, but said he had already been paid.
"We are going to open a criminal case against this guy,"
Nonkonyane said in the report.
Neither Nonkonyane nor SAFA spokesperson Morio Sanyane and Gary Mojela could be
reached for comment.
