Platinum Stars have handed Joseph Mkalipa his clearance to allow him to further his career elsewhere. Mkalipa was contracted to Dikwena until the end of the season, although he last played for Witbank Spurs on loan from the Phokeng-based outfit.
A source in the know informed the Siya crew that the club has settled an agreement with Mkalipa, and that the two parties parted ways in an amicable manner.
“Joseph Mkalipa has just received his clearance from Platinum Stars. He has been playing for Witbank Spurs on loan from Platinum Stars. He needs to get another team as soon as possible.
“Stars talked about their limited budget and stuff like the player wasn’t in the coach’s plans and all that. The player has received settlement for the remainder of his contract,” said the source.
Stars have been doing well this season with their current crop of players. Coach Cavin Johnson is confident that his squad can go onto to lift silverware.
