Habas Out, Barker In

Wits have confirmed that they have terminated Antonio Habas' contract by mutual consent, and that Clive Barker will come in to replace him for the rest of the season.

Habas only joined the Clever Boys at the start of the season after the club had parted ways with Roger De Sa, but CEO Jose Ferreira says that Habas is leaving due to personal reasons.

“Antonio Lopez has requested that, due to personal and private reasons, he be released from his contract, due to expire at the end of the season," Ferreira told the club's official website.

"We have acceded to his request and we are in the process of finalising the necessary paperwork in this regard. Antonio Lopez has been an exemplary professional and we wish him the very best in his future endeavours."

It was also confirmed on their official website that Barker would come in for the remainder of the season, and he will be assisted by Andre Arendse, who will also continue his duties as goalkeeper coach.

Barker is due to join the side on Monday, 7 January, meaning that Arendse will look after the side until then.
