Leopards Make Kapinga Decision Amid Downs Talk

Black Leopards have made a decision on Lesedi Kapinga despite reports that he is very much on his way to Mamelodi Sundowns next season.

It is believed the attacker has already penned a three-year contract to make his Chloorkop switch for the 2020/21 season, although Kapinga has publicly denied this is the case.

With the campaign halted back in March because of the global Coronavirus pandemic, plans are afoot to restart again under strict health guidelines.

The challenge for all of the Premier Soccer League clubs, however, has been the fact that some players are now out of contract – in Leopards’ case, Kapinga is one of them.

FIFA, the world football governing body, put together a Covid-19 response document and in it urged all clubs to try hold on to the original squad to end off the campaign, though this has to be done with the players’ consent. It recommended that deals running out on June 30 be extended until the campaign is officially concluded.

“We have decided to keep our players for the remainder of the season. That includes Kapinga and everyone else whose contract was coming to an end on June 30 and are in the coach’s plans for the remaining games,” Leopards general manager Tshifhiwa Thidiela told the Siya crew.

Sundowns have not confirmed that Kapinga is joining them, neither have Lidoda Duvha revealed where the attacker is headed next season.

The short-term agreement entered into with Leopards is for a period of two months, with football expected to resume later this month as the PSL aims to wrap up the 2019/20 term at the very latest around August.
