Two Different Teams In Eight Months, ‘Slyza Tsotsi’ In Search Once Again
Midfielder Released By Two Clubs In One Season
A winger is set to finish the season without a club, although he had been registered with two different clubs in the PSL this season.
Innocent ‘Slyza Tsotsi’ Nemukondeni has parted ways with Bloemfontein Celtic, just three months after joining the club. The winger had been with the Mangaung club since January, having joined them on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
Prior to joining Celtic, the former University of Pretoria player was with Ajax Cape Town, whom he joined in August on a four-year deal, as confirmed by the club at the time.
Contacted for comment, Gerald Baloyi of Vodia Players Management has explained to the Siya crew why Nemukondeni’s Celtic stay was a short-lived one.
“I have spoken to the chairman of the club (Max Tshabalala), and he has told me that Innocent will no longer be in the coach’s plans going forward,” confirmed Baloyi.
The player’s representative has refuted reports that the 25-year-old Meadowlands-born player’s departure from Siwelele might have anything to do with alleged ill-discipline.
“I’m disappointed to hear some people saying that Innocent is not disciplined, and all sorts of things that are being said about him. I’m disappointed because that’s not what the club is saying for parting ways with him.
“Innocent does not have any disciplinary issues. He is a well-behaved boy and a committed player. He had a groin injury that delayed his progress at Celtic. Now that he has returned from injury, he has been told that he is no longer in the coach’s plans,” Baloyi told the Siya crew.
