Baroka Discuss Confusion Amid Player Debacle

Baroka FC Seem To Be Having Some Issues With Their Players

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 18, 2017 01:26 PM
It doesn’t appear that everyone at Baroka FC is currently on the same page, with players reportedly being told that they’re unneeded shortly after signing for them, though the club has shed some light on the situation.
The Siya crew reported recently that there was a division at the club between the management and coaching staff, though the notion was dismissed by the Baroka spokesperson, Jimmy Ngobeni.
However, it appears that there is some confusion with a signing, though Ngobeni has given Baroka's side of the story. 
According to Siya sources, former Bidvest Wits defender, Tebogo Moerane, penned a long-term contract with Baroka earlier this month, but was then told by the club that he was not needed.
Moerane, who is thought to be upset by the turn of events, played for Platinum Stars during the recent Maize Cup as he looks to try and sort out his future amicably, although as things stand he does have a deal with Bakgaga according to the source.
A source told the crew, “Moerane signed a lengthy contract with Baroka, however it seems that there is some political confusion at the club."
The source went on, “Before he had really trained, he was then told by some coaching staff that his services weren’t required. It became a very uncomfortable and the player removed himself, that’s how he ended up at Platinum Stars.”
However, Ngobeni has shed some light on the situation. While the club official confirmed the signing, he admitted that the player vanished after he was told that he would be playing first team football.
“Tebogo trained with us and we proposed (offered) a three-year contract. He signed the contract, it’s a three-year contract, but then when the technical team assessed him, they decided that he is not ready for first team football and should be playing MDC for now. The player believes that he should be playing first team football but vanished after he was told that he would be playing in the reserve team in the MDC.
“We like him, we think he is a good player, but he is not ready for first team football,” concluded Ngobeni.
