GladAfrica Championship title chasers Swallows FC have reportedly come to an agreement with the South African Football Players Union in order to pay out unsettled salaries for 11 of their former players.
The Dube Birds, who are currently in runners-up spot in the second tier of SA football, heed to the call after SAFPU took them to the PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber in order settle the players’ outstanding payments, after they were released from their contracts towards the end of last year.
“The issue has now been settled. The players are now going to get what is due to them,” SAFPU deputy general secretary Calvin Motloung told KickOff.com.
“We are happy that the players will now concentrate on finding new jobs so that they can put food on the table for their families.”
Swallows are seven points behind league leaders Ajax Cape Town, with six matches left before the 2019/20 campaign comes to a conclusion.
The Dobsonville-based club is yet comment on the issue.
