SOUTH African Premier Soccer League side SuperSport United say they will not renew the contract of Kudakwashe Mahachi when it expires at the end of this month.
SuperSport United chief executive officer Stan Matthews told Skepe Matsebane on Power Sport Extra that Mahachi remains suspended over his alleged abuse of his infant son.
“He’s on suspension.
I’ve met him personally and his lawyer and we’ve just decided that from our part as a football club this is a serious matter that he needs to go and attend to, and see to his family and his priorities,” said Matthews.
“We suspended him from all football activities.
His contract expires on the 30th of June, so there won’t really be any further action on our part.
We’ve encouraged him to focus on clearing his name and making sure his child gets the best rehabilitation care as possible, given the current situation.
