THANDA Royal Zulu dumped Sammy Troughton to reunite with Mlungisi "Professor" Ngubane. But Troughton is seeking legal advice for unfair labour practice.

Troughton said he received a letter from the club that indicated that he will not be in the club's plans next season.

"When I joined them we agreed verbally with Nastasia Tsichlas (the side's managing director) that I would coach the club for the past season and the next one. I do not know what they are doing but I'm ready to take them to court."

Royal Zulu's chairperson, Peer Delvax, confirmed that Ngubane will coach the team next season.

"Mlungisi is currently assisting us to build a team and he will officially start his job on July 1. We believe his experience will help us be promoted to the elite league," Delvax said. Ngubane told Sowetan he was excited to be reunited with Royal.
