Ex-Bafana Bafana player Eric September claims that lawyers from the firm Ronald Bobroff & Partners robbed him of more than R1.4 million.

September says he should have received a payout from RAF (the Road Accident Fund) in 1999 but his lawyers made off with his money.

The law firm denies receiving any money from RAF, according to a report by News24. RAF, in turn, says they paid out September's money in 1999.

September played for the Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Jomo Cosmos before he got injured in a car accident in 1994.

His injuries were so severe that he can never play soccer again. Now he is finding it difficult to provide for his family.

In fact, his second wife is currently the breadwinner since he cannot work. Despite having a teaching qualification and coaching license, September is battling to make ends meet.

Since his release from prison 8 years ago, September just couldn't manage to rebuild his life.

In 1997, September was sentenced to 27 years in prison after he was found guilty of the sexual assault and murder of his first wife. He was released in 2010.

The Bobroffs have since fled to Australia. Briefly.co.za reported earlier on how father and son, Ronald and Darren Bobroff, have been living the high life in Australia after allegedly fleecing RAF victims of millions. The pair is living in a Sydney suburb in high-class houses worth millions.

September says his son had to drop out of university since there's no money to pay for his studies.
