TTM brought Paez back into the country after he was released by Amakhosi almost a season and a half ago. But he was released after a few training sessions with the Limpopo side.

“They couldn’t even reimburse him for his travel costs as they were supposed to transport him from Venezuela. I heard his agent is considering legal options on the matter,” said a source.

He also revealed that “Ma-11” as Paez is nicknamed, was set to start training with Babina Noko yesterday.

“He is starting at Sekhukhune on Monday and they seem very interested and are more organized. It is a better chance for him to rebuild himself in local football and prove himself,” said the source.
