The Siya crew can reveal Jurie Basie has not returned to Free State Stars, contrary to what some media reports have been suggesting.
Basie, who had a stint at Ea Lla Koto, was released from the club at the end of last season.
However, some reports have indicated that Basie played for Stars in their opening league game of 2015, against SuperSport United on Wednesday.
The reports suggest that the former Santos player scored one of the goals, as Stars drew 2-2 with Matsatsantsa.
A source in the camp of Stars confirmed to the Siya crew that the 29-year-old midfielder hasn’t returned to the Bethlehem outfit.
“I have heard the rumours about Jurie back in the team, but I can tell you that such reports are untrue. Maybe the person who wrote about that made a mistake,” said the source.
Newly-promoted Stars striker, Mbuyiselo Thethani, scored on debut for the side against SuperSport, which is the same fate that was achieved by Hendrik Somaeb with the other goal.
