AmaZulu hit by politics

2015-07-23 06:02

NEW Mpumalanga Black Aces goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters believes the sale of his new club to AmaZulu was not prevented due to the PSL’s adherence to certain rules and regulations.

Walters takes a cynical outlook on the unfolding of events, and while he is glad that Aces will remain in the PSL, he says it was probably politics that stopped the deal going through.

“We still don’t know why this one was declined and why the six others weren’t before — I just think that there is a lot of politics involved,” said the former Maritzburg United goalkeeper.

“If certain people wanted it done then it would have been done.

“I think South African football has dealt with things their own way for the past 15 years now I don’t see why they would now [stick] to Fifa rules.

“Obviously Fifa would not allow it but South Africa has done a number of things before that Fifa has not allowed.

“Next year somebody else wants to do it and it might go through, it’s about who has power.”

AmaZulu bought out Dynamos in 2006 to gain PSL status, but last Thursday the PSL confirmed they decided a similar deal would not go through this time.
