MARITZBURG United say they are considering legal action against coach Steve Komphela, who allegedly joined Kaizer Chiefs without paying the required compensation to the Team of Choice.

Komphela resigned as United’s coach on 12 June and was announced as Kaizer Chiefs’ new boss five days later.

Maritzburg chairman Farouk Kadodia said that after Komphela left he was meant to pay compensation as his contract with the Team of Choice only expires in June 2016.

But the matter is yet to be resolved.

“There has been no finality on the issue yet and our legal team will decide what the best way of sorting out this situation is,” Kadodia tells KickOff.com

“What we are getting from Komphela’s camp is that the reason why this matter has not been sorted out is because they are basically dependant on the new team [Kaizer Chiefs] to take care of the matter. But this is a matter between Maritzburg and Komphela, not his new team.

“He knew very well he was supposed to take care of the compensation before 1 July.”

The Komphela versus Maritzburg issue adds more problems to Chiefs, who are also involved in a transfer tussle over Togolese striker Camaldine Abraw with Bloemfontein Celtic.

Amakhosi unveiled Abraw as a new signing from Free State Stars earlier this month, but Celtic claim the player has penned a pre-contract with Phunya Sele Sele.

The PSL’s Dispute Resolution Chamber was scheduled to deal with the matter on Tuesday._– KickOff.com
