SOCCER- DAGGERS have been drawn!
Mbabane Swallows want-away midfielder Banele ‘Pupu’ Sikhondze has reported the team to the Eswatini Football Association (EFA) Status Committee for alleged breach of contract.

This comes after the player tendered his resignation letter to the team.
‘Pupu’ has been linked with a move to archrivals Mbabane Highlanders.

According to reliable sources, Mbabane Swallows allegedly refused with the player’s clearance last week as they argued that he had a contract with them.

This prompted the player to report the capital city giants to the PSC, citing breach of contract.
It is said that the team allegedly owed him his signing-on fee amounting to over E80 000.

“The player believes that he has a strong case against Swallows. It is now a wait and see situation because Swallows will also state their side of the story,” said the source.
Swallows Public Relations Officer Knowledge Ngwenya confirmed the matter.

“Yes, it is true that the player has reported us to the PSC. This is what I can say for now,” he said.

Meanwhile, the veracity of the facts will be tested by the PSC led by Sipho Matse before the end of the week.

Pupu’ is one of the most decorated players in the country, having won a number of titles with Mbabane Swallows.
The attacking midfielder has also played in the PSL for Polokwane City and the now defunct Mbombela United in the ABC Motsepe League.
