“Players need to be vigilant and not sign contracts that do not have figures. They are within their rights to demand a copy of their contracts.
“They also should not be stopped from having agents or representation, it is their constitutional right.
“We will make a follow-up on this issue. It is our responsibility to serve and to protect the players.”
The South African understands that a Sunday World informer revealed all the details, indicating that some players and coaches operate on verbal contracts with nothing on paper.
