Matthews Explains Mbule Suspension, Makes Huge Claim

April 14, 2022

SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews has explained why Sipho Mbule has been suspended and insisted the midfielder will not play for the club again.

The 24-year-old has been suspended by the club since early April and all signs are leading to a departure of the midfielder. Matthews has now reiterated his stance on Mbule, saying the player is not in the right head space to help the team.

“He can’t refuse to sign a contract, Sipho is in a contract,” Matthews told Thabiso Mosia on MetroFMSport.

“He still has a couple of years left in his contract with SuperSport, so there is no choice about that.

“Sipho has been excused from training. His head space isn’t right to come and be with the team, he hasn’t been reliable – not to himself and not to his teammates.

“We’d rather play without Sipho and finish a couple of places lower in the league as a team that’s unified, a team that is disciplined, a team that works for each other and respects each other.

Mbule, who is understood to be a transfer target of Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs, has a contract until June 2022, but SuperSport have an option to extend it for another season, according to his agent Mike Makaab.

When asked whether Mbule is trying to force a move, Matthews admitted that the midfielder will not play for the club again.

“That could very well be and he’s not going to be playing for our club again,” he added.
