Legal battle between Kaizer Chiefs and Royal AM, Dillan Solomons has revealed where he stands on the matter, following claims by Royal AM CEO Sinky Mnisi.
Mnisi said that Solomons, who was unveiled as one of Amakhosi new signings, is a Royal AM player, alleging that there is something fishy about the right-back’s transfer to the Soweto giants.
The 23-year-old penned a four-year deal in June with Chiefs, but Mnisi, during the press conference on Wednesday, stated that Amakhosi must pay Royal AM for the player, as it is said that Swallows had agreed with the KZN outfit to sell three players, including Solomons for a fee of R1.5 million.
However, as previously reported by the Siya crew, Solomons’ agent Grant Nieuwenhuys of GN Sports Agency outlined that the player had not agreed to any deal with Royal AM and followed the correct procedure in joining the Glamour Boys.
On the sidelines of the Amakhosi Supporters Event at FNB Stadium, Solomons admitted that Mnisi’s remarks bothered him.
“I knew where I wanted to be, and I didn’t feel any type of way. I knew that it just would blow over because I knew the situation that I was in. At that moment, I was a bit nervous, but obviously, I knew that I didn’t do anything wrong or whatever I did was the right way,” Solomons said to the media at the Chiefs fan event.
“I wasn’t fully aware of it. I just heard Royal AM wanted players at that moment, but I was not fully aware that they did whatever they did. So for me, I’m happy where I am now.
“It was a big decision for me, so it took a lot of effort to try and get this deal done, but we worked hard, and last season was a breakthrough for me.
“So this decision wasn’t easy because a lot of people dream about this, and to get this opportunity means the world to me,” he added.
