Mamelodi Sundowns star Mothobi Mvala is reportedly in hot water with the club following allegations of gender-based violence laid against him over December.
The midfielder has formed an integral part of the Brazilians midfield since signing form Highlands Park but could face a massive backlash from the club as they investigate a alleged gender based violence case laid against him by his partner.
According to SoccerLaduma, the Bafana Bafana midfielder’s partner Palesa Botipe opened the case in December with Mvala set to appear in court on January 12.
According to the SoccerLaduma report, not only are the authorities currently investigating the matter but so are Mamelodi Sundowns with the Brazilians looking to get to the bottom of the matter with Mvala set to face the music if found guilty.
“The matter is being investigated by the club. The player has been in the Free State these past few days and was seen attending one of the local football tournaments as a guest but on Saturday he was called by the club enquiring about the allegations against him. GBV is serious and it is pleasing to see that the club doesn’t take it lightly,” said the source.
Sundowns have taken action in such cases in the past as in 2019 the club terminated the contract of Siyabonga Zulu after the mother of his child went to the club to demand that the footballer pay for their son.
