Confirmed: Phala On The Move Again...

Thuso Phala is on the move again…

Barely a year after joining Black Leopards at the start of the 2019/20 season, the veteran winger will be looking for a new chapter elsewhere.

The Siya crew had reported last month already that Phala’s departure from Lidoda Duvha appeared imminent given his lack of game-time.

It’s now been confirmed by the 33-year-old’s agent that the former SuperSport United, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns star will in fact not see out the remainder of his contract at Leopards should football, currently halted by COVID-19, resume.

He is the second player after Karabo Tshepe to leave Leopards before the end of the season and their contract on June 30.

“We commenced contract re-negotiations with Leopards regarding a few players during this lockdown period and it was then made clear that the club would not be extending Thuso’s stay,” said Basia Michels of QT Sports.  

“In light of that we then came to an agreement to settle and that Thuso would not be returning to Leopards should football resume. It was an amicable termination and Thuso agreed to it. There were no fights, no bad blood.”

Phala, who has 20 Bafana Bafana appearances and featured for the national team at two Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, played for Leopards only 13 times this season, but was a notable absentee from their matchday squads since the start of 2020.
