After Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila confirmed their name change to Marumo Gallants, the club has now revealed to the Siya crew that they are still interested in the services of winger George Lebese.
Lebese’s attempt to bounce back hit a snag after he failed to secure his international clearance from the club he left a few months ago, the Colorado Springs Switchbacks, who play in the US second tier.
In March it was confirmed that Lebese would not return to the US due to COVID-19 restrictions and he amicably parted ways with the Switchbacks. Indications were that he would join Marumo Gallants (formerly TTM) until the end of the season.
Speaking to the Siya crew, Gallants general manager Rufus Matsena confirmed that they are interested in having Lebese.
“The last time I spoke to our technical guys, they were keen on having him back. Now it’s up to us having to go back to him and trying to find out if he is still interested in joining us,” Matsena told the Siya crew.
It remains to be seen where Lebese will be playing his football, as he is a free agent and is keen on making a return to the pitch after spending some time off it.
