Koapeng Training With Wits

As predicted by the Siya crew, Letsie Koapeng has left Bloemfontein Celtic and gone back to Wits, although he will only start looking for a club in January.

The striker impressed Clinton Larsen during a trial stint, which he attended alongside well-established strikers Thembinkosi Fanteni and Diyo Sibisi, who did not do enough to win a contract at the club. The agreement was that he would join the club on a season-long loan deal, but has now been deemed surplus to requirements by new coach Ernst Middendorp.

The Diepkloof-born striker has returned to Wits, but will not be drafted immediately into Gavin Hunt’s plans and will be looking for a move in the next transfer window.

The crew caught up with the player, who said, “I’m back training with Wits. You know how things can go well for you the one minute in football and then the next minute one thing ruins it for you. My biggest downfall was the departure of Coach Larsen because he’s the one that brought me down there and things kinda changed with the arrival of the new coach."

Koapeng continued, "I have nothing against Celtic as a club because I learnt a lot there and there is no bad blood between me and the coach. He prefers hard-hitting players rather than players like me. The coach wanted me to train with the reserve side and for me that was uncalled for, so we came to a mutual agreement that I should go back to Wits.”
