THEY went from friends to frienemies at 0100km/h! This was four years ago when two soccer stars butted heads over moolah. And the battle is still ongoing!
According to former Orlando Pirates and Bloemfontein Celtic player Khethokwakhe Masuku, he is owed money by Mamelodi Sundowns defender Siyabonga Zulu. And if you ask Sunday Sun sources, Masuku is on a manhunt . . . or is that a money hunt?
One source says the two were like brothers until Siyabonga was involved in an accident that randered Kethokwakhe’s BMW a complete write-off.
“Khethokkwakhe trusted Siyabonga with all he had, including his BMW and that’s what caused their friendship to end. Siyabonga borrowed Khethokwakhe’s car and was involved in an accident and refused to pay for the damages.”
The midfielder is furious as he’s been trying to get hold of Siyabonga, who is allegedly avoiding him like a bad case of athlete’s foot.
“He wants the money back,” said the source.
Last week, an angry Kethokwakhe confirmed that he is owed money.
"Yes, Siyabonga owes me money for my BMW he crashed four years ago. I asked for my money, but he’s sent me from pillar to post.”
But Siyabonga, true to his soccer position, defended himself and stopped Kathokwakhe from scoring a goal against him.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t owe anyone anything and I’ve never been involved in any accidents,” said Siyabonga when contacted.
He is rumoured to have got a signing fee of R300 000, and another source claims the money is already gone.
“Khethokwakhe should forget about getting his money back because he [Siyabonga] can’t even fix his Audi A5 Coupe that was damaged in an accident two weeks ago.”
