Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic Chairman Max Tshabalala was left stunned after Camaldine Abraw’s registration as a Kaizer Chiefs was approved by the PSL.

Phunya Sele Sele released a statement regarding PSL General Manager Derek Blanckensee’s comments about Abraw’s legibility to join Amakhosi as misleading.

“We are utterly stunned by Mr. Blanckensee’s judgment on the matter before the PSL can deliberate on the matter and come up with verdict,” said Tshabalala in the statement.

“As a club, we haven’t received any formal communication from the league as yet.

“The DRC recommended that the PSL check whether Chiefs was right to sign the player considering that he had signed a pre-contract with Celtic.

“Also to be determined was whether the player was right to sign two contracts with different teams.

“The league has to also make a decision on whether Celtic was right to sign the player three months before his contract expired without consulting his former club (Free State Stars).

“It’s worth noting that our request of have the player back at Celtic was duly denied by the DRC.”

“We are perplexed that even before a decision is taken an individual has already decided to make a ruling through the media and that is unprofessional.

“The league has to distance itself from the misleading statements made by the General Manager. We respect the league and are awaiting for the report.

“I promise that we will take this matter to the highest court if the results are not in our favour, purely because of our confidence regarding the matter,” concluded Tshabalala.
