Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League Dispute Resolution Chamber (PSL DRC) has ordered Chippa United to pay former left-back Khanyisa Matomane six month's salary.

The club is facing various money related issues and this latest ruling from the PSL DRC is unlikely to help matters for the Chilli Boys.

The dispute began when Chippa terminated Matomane at the end of their first season in the Premiership without compensation, despite the player have two years left on his contract.

The fullback went to the PSL DRC backed by the South African Football Players' Union.

The case has dragged on for two years now, but a verdict has finally been passed in favour of the player.

“The ruling from the attorneys representing the Players Union states that Chippa must pay Matomane six months' salary.

“The club was given seven days within which to appeal and they have until Thursday to do so,” said Russel Loiuse, the player's manager.

The verdict guarantees the defender will receive his money as, if the club hasn't paid Matomane within 14 days after the expiry of the appeal date, the money will be taken directly from Chippa's monthly grant.

Chippa United are involved in numerous money battles with several of their players, chief among them being Thami Sangweni who left the club earlier this month over off-field issues.

Former coach Floyd Mogale has also gone to the PSL DRC seeking restitution for unpaid monies while he was at the club.
