Pay-up FC Platinum: Golden Munandi

FC Platinum are famous as a cash-rich outfit, but behind their promotion history is a trail of broken dreams and broken promises.

One casualty is their former midfielder, Golden Munandi (27), who is still seething over an unfairly terminated contract, unpaid signing-on fees and compensation for contract termination.

The pint-sized midfielder, one of those that saw the club promoted to the PSL, told The Zimbabwean from his new base in Johannesburg that the Zvishavane-based outfit owed him and 22 other players in excess of $8 000.

The money stems from his signing-on fee and a season worth of salaries, after the club terminated his contract without negotiation at the arrival of Rahman Gumbo as coach last season.

“I have tried my best to resolve the issue with them amicably, but they are apparently not eager to cooperate,” said the bitter player.

“I was only given $4 000 of the agreed $12 000 signing-on fee. With the great work I did for the team since our days in the lower divisions, the treatment that I got from them at the end of the day was a slap in the face.”

He blamed it partly on Gumbo’s arrival. “The whole club administration has not shown interest in resolving this issue and 22 other players are in the same position as me. It looks like this club is being run by cowards who do not want to own up.” Club Secretary, Philemon Muvengwa was not available for comment.
