Chiefs to appeal Williams ruling
Chiefs to appeal Williams ruling

Posted in News on Feb 25, 2002.

Kaizer Chiefs will appeal against a ruling by the Johannesburg High Court to pay former striker Mark Williams more than R1 million for an alleged breach of contract.

Williams took Chiefs to court after the club allegedly failed to honour their contract and pay him when he was transferred to a team in Saudi Arabia four years ago.

The Court ordered that Chiefs pay Williams R1,38 million, which was part of the proceeds of his transfer to Al-Shabab in Saudi Arabia.

The club, however, says it has already paid Williams all the money owed to him, adding that the player is demanding the club's portion of the transfer fee.

The former Bafana Bafana marksman did not want to comment, saying the matter is in the hands of his legal representative.

Meanwhile, team manager Bobby Motaung was released after paying R2000 bail for an alleged bomb threat at Cape Town International Airport. Bobby was not asked to plead and will appear in court on April 3.

The team was returning from Cape Town after its goalless draw against Santos over the weekend. The matter is still sub-judice and no one wanted to comment.
