3 Black Leopards players caught playing township "money games"

It is not a hidden fact that most professional football players are in the habit of playing money games during season breaks. 

While club's discourage this, players earn a quick buck by participating in them.

The advent of social media has made it possible for people to film and share soccer stars playing these so called. 

One of these emerged during the Easter weekend when three Black Leopards players were caught on camera playing in a tournament.

They were not supposed to have been at the tournament because of Covid-19 protocols. 

They have now found themselves in trouble with the Black Leopards management. The management have sent a strong message in dealing with the trio. 

The three players are Lifa Hlongwane, Tebogo Makobela and Onyedikachi Ononogbu, are alleged to have attended Thabiso Semenya’s tournament last weekend, which broke the club’s Covid protocols. 

“What really got the club unhappy is not only that attending such events are restricted, but they went there immediately after the loss to AmaZulu which left the club in a more precarious position on the log. Their conduct was seen as disrespectful and unprofessional, but their suspension may have been a little harsh,” said a source.

They have all been suspended and their future at the club still remains uncleear.
