Downs: Booth slams 'ethics'

2011-07-07 00:00

JOHANNESBURG — Matthew Booth has slammed Mamelodi Sundowns’ ethics after being dismissed from the club following a five-minute meeting.

The centre-back was ruled out of the final weeks of the PSL campaign through injury, and soon after was informed in a meeting with club CEO Kenneth Makhanya that his contract would not be renewed.

“I still have a good three to four years of top-level football in me. I have a problem with the ethics here, to say the least,” a frustrated Booth said.”

The Bafana Bafana defender went on to reveal that, after receiving the news, he was contacted by Downs’ lawyers offering him a job in management at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

“My biggest problem with them is that they could have at least offered me the team’s medical staff to help me get better, bearing in mind that I was injured while playing for them … Instead they took a decision to get rid of me without letting the new head coach have a look at me …I don’t think that was correct.”
