Highlanders chairman, Kenneth Mhlophe has pleaded with fans to be patient as the players continue with their strike over unpaid salaries.

In a statement released by the club yesterday, Mhlophe also assured players that all is under control.

"I would like to take this opportunity to inform Highlanders Football club stakeholders that while the players have not received their salaries, we are committed to the welfare of our players.

"I empathize with our players and I would like to assure them that as per our engagement, all is in control. I am also pleading with our stakeholders, particularly the fans to remain calm.

"I have also noted with great concern how the situation has blown out of proportion by some insinuate that there is animosity between the executive and the players yet the issue is being handled with maturity and mutual respect between both parties," read the statement.

He added:

"The only purpose these innuendos serve is to cause chaos within Highlanders as they suggest that the club intends to victimize certain players for supposedly leading a 'strike. All these are false allegations alien to the Highlanders culture.

"At Highlanders we solve problems through dialoguenot6 intimidat6ion so we shall continue engaging the players as we are working tirelessly to find their salaries within the shortest possible time.

"Highlanders are a great institution with a culture of communication. I urge all stakeholders to take note that the club communicates through its official channels, thus information coming through unknown and unverified sources should not be taken seriously.

"I plead with everyone's patience as we look forward to this coming season and beyond to restore the Club's pride. Together with all my colleagues, we hope to turn Highlanders into a successful Club in all fronts."
