PSL management rebuffs ultimatum



THE Premier Soccer League (PSL) management committee was yesterday facing dismissal after vowing to defy an end-of-day ultimatum to respond to allegations of mismanagement leveled by clubs agains

t the league’s under fire executives.


Eric Rosen, the chairman of the committee appointed by the clubs to audit the league’s funds and sponsorship as well as probe allegations of irregular appointments, confirmed having written to PSL chairman Tendai Madzorera yesterday asking him to respond to the allegations by last night.


Madzorera pronounced the ultimatum illegal, saying his committee would ignore it and go ahead with their original plan to draw the response to the allegations at a meeting in Kwekwe this weekend.


“We were always going to respond to those allegations,” said Madzorera.

“We will furnish clubs with all details regarding the issues. But I don’t believe in ultimatums, and we do not run a league by such deadlines which are not a constitutional requirement.”


A rift emerged in the PSL after some clubs last week attempted to pass a vote-of-no-confidence on the league’s management committee, blaming the executive of causing the termination of a sponsorship agreement with Econet Wireless.


The clubs also accused the management committee of misrepresentation and lack of transparency.
