Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) have provided South African football with a case study, albeit a very expensive one, of what not to do after buying a status in the premiership.
Club owner Masala Mulaudzi seems to be in way over his head.TTM’s troubles have followed the players on to the pitch, which is evident as the team languishes at the bottom of the standings, with nine points from 12 games. They were hammered 3-0 by Kaizer Chiefs in the middle of the week.
The club is reportedly in the process of being sold and the players again face uncertain times. With month-end approaching, it is probable that another player strike is looming, as the club is still struggling to pay salaries.TTM could sink even deeper into the hole in which they find themselves after their clash with SuperSport United this afternoon.

TTM’s problems are compounded by the fact that they will be without imposing defender Alfred Ndengane and midfielder Joseph Molangoane, who are on suspension.Bradley Grobler will lead SuperSport United’s attack against TTM in Venda this afternoon. Picture: Gavin Barker / BackpagePix
United, by contrast, should have a full complement of players with no suspensions. The league’s leading scorer, Bradley Grobler, will look to continue his incredible form, which has seen him net 11 goals in 12 games.TTM coach Joel Masutha is under pressure to start delivering, or he could be the next casualty. headtopics.com
