Bloemfontein Celtic are threatening legal action over Chiefs’ Camaldine Abraw acquisition while Maritzburg United have also voiced their concern over how the deal to appointment Steve Komphela as coach was conducted. 

Then there were the puzzling contractual negotiations of several star players including captain Tefu Mashamaite, rising star Mandla Masango and long-term number one goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune – with the futures of the last two on that list still up the air.

But the club’s football manager Bobby Motaung is not budging.

When asked by Sport24 if he was happy with the way that Chiefs had conducted business over the last few weeks, Motaung would not be drawn into commenting.

"I don’t want to comment on that. It’s safe to say that anybody who has a dispute or a complaint knows the procedure and they must follow the right procedure," he said.  

Celtic have taken the matter to the PSL's Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC).
