THE Moyo twins, Kevin and Elvis, have reportedly engaged the services of Footballers Union of Zimbabwe (FUZ) in a bid to force South African club Chippa United to give them their signing-on fees.
Chippa United released the Zimbabwean duo a fortnight ago after they demanded their signing-on fees.
The two left-footed players parted ways with the Eastern Cape-based club just one season after the defensive duo joined the Chili Boys in July last year from FC Platinum.
Kevin and Elvis are reportedly owed between R200 000 and R400 000 respectively by the Chili Boys, who last week Monday confirmed that they had parted ways with a total of 15 players.
“They are yet to get their money. They were only given their clearance letters. As such the boys have engaged the Footballers Union of Zimbabwe to help them get what they are owed by Chippa United,” said the Moyo twins’ elder brother Thabani.
Thabani is a former Highlanders, AmaZulu and Bantu Rovers player, who had a playing stint in Cyprus.
“But the good thing is they got offers from other South African clubs. Offers have also come from Europe and we are just keeping our fingers crossed,” Thabani said.
Kevin was a regular in the starting eleven and made 30 appearances, mostly at centre-back, in all competitions, while Elvis saw little game time and managed just 13 appearances at the left-back position.
Chippa just managed to avoid relegation last season and have now made wholesale changes to the technical and playing staff, as coach Lehlohonolo Seema takes charge of his first pre-season.
Seema is the fifth coach to take charge of Chippa United in just one season. He replaced Rulani Mokwena while Clinton Larsen, Duran Francis and Zimbabwean Norman Mapeza were the others that occupied the hot post last season.
