Edward Manqele Has Left Free State Stars
Less than 140 days after his return to Free State Stars, the Siya crew has been informed that Edward Manqele has left the club amid interest from elsewhere.

The 30-year-old has scored three goals for Ea Lla Koto since they helped him rekindle his career last year, but it appears his head had been turned by reported interest from Chippa United, and he has now been released.
Stars’ general manager Rantsi Mokoena confirmed the departure of the former Kaizer Chiefs man, explaining that they had agreed his exit by mutual consent.
It remains to be seen whether Manqele will make a shock return to the Chilli Boys as they continue their quest to bolster their side, while Stars will no doubt be in the market for a new striker following his exit.
Manqele had scored as many Absa Premiership goals this season as he had in his three previous seasons combined.
