Orlando Pirates midfielder, Tshepo Liphoko, has returned to South Africa following his trial with Greek outfit OFI Crete FC.
Liphoko jetted out of the country just over a week ago to attend a trial with the Greek Superleague outfit, the same side that Kaizer Chiefs defender Lincoln Zvasiya joined on loan.
The trip to Greece for the youngster was his second in the space of six months, having had a short training spell with Greek side Atromitos FC back in May.
Liphoko, who spent last season on loan at Golden Arrows, returned to Pirates at the start of pre-season training, before jetting off to OFI Crete FC.
The player and his agent now await word from the Greek Superleague side, however should a move not materialise, it will be interesting to see whether the young talented midfielder will be part of Pirates head coach, Roger de Sa’s plans for the 2013/14 Absa Premiership campaign.
Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will clash on July 27, with the title of 2013 Carling Black Label Cup champions up for grabs.
