Highlanders coach Erol Akbay on strike

Erol Akbay, the coach of Premier Soccer League Club, Highlanders Football Club is on strike and refusing to conduct any training sessions. Akbay is protesting Highlanders’ failure to settle his signing on fees in full. Akbay has not attended any training since Tuesday, and assistant coach Amini Soma-Phiri is running the whole show.

Akbay refuted that the strike was over DStv payments and home internet. Said Akbay:

No, no that is not the issue, I make those payments (DStv and internet) myself, but to do that I need money. The club agreed in 2016 to pay my signing on fee, but they have not done that.

They promised to make the payment upon my return this year, but nothing has come. They keep on saying it’s coming, but I don’t know until when. This is why I am now having all these problems; no money and food is almost finished. I am home now and I am almost giving up, we will see though.
