Cape Town - Former Platinum Stars coach Peter Butler is reportedly taking the club to court over claims that Dikwena are yet to pay him the agreed compensation after his sacking earlier this season.
The Englishman saw his head roll off the chopping block after just two matches in charge despite having a contract that ran until the end of the 2017/18 campaign.
Following his dismissal, the team were said to have agreed on a financial settlement with dates finalised upon which payments were to be made in due course.
According to a report in the SowetanLIVE website, Stars have apparently broken the agreement by not making payment on time and the 51-year-old is now turning to his lawyers in order to solve the situation. Should it not be resolved, he will take his case to FIFA.
Meanwhile, Dikwena spokesman Tebogo Mochadibane said a response was being prepared, “Our chairman (Cliff Ramoroa) said the process is still on-going‚”
Stars‚ who are bottom of the Premier Soccer League table‚ have since replaced Butler with experienced local coach Roger de Sa.
