“He started by calling with the MDC coach of Polokwane City, claiming to be Ramahlwe Mphahlele and then saying his cousin wants to play for Polokwane City. Then the coach said we will organise and have a look at him. Then this guy [the fraudster] says to the Polokwane City coach ‘if you want something, don’t be shy to say and I can give you something’. That’s when the coach got suspicious. I’ve tried to call this guy, but he did not pick up and he blocked my calls,” Mphahlele told KickOff.

“Today (Tuesday) at training Daniel Cardoso says ‘coach Ronny at AmaZulu says he has been speaking to you on WhatsApp’, but I don’t have WhatsApp. So this guy [the fraudster] has my picture as his profile picture on WhatsApp. I am worried because he is going to tarnish my name. He might go and do other things using my identity. I call for people to ignore this guy.”
