Mokeke Replaces Masilela In CHAN Squad

Ajax Cape Town’s Thato Mokeke has replaced injured Tsepo Masilela in Gordon Igesund’s Bafana Bafana squad for the CHAN tournament starting on Saturday.

Masilela was one of the five Kaizer Chiefs players selected for the squad, but withdrew over the weekend.

Mokeke, who has started just four games for Ajax this season (and made two sub appearances), will be leaving the club for SuperSport United at the end of the season.

The squad assembled in Cape Town over the weekend in preparation for Saturday’s opening game at the Cape Town Stadium against Mozambique.

Talking to the SAFA website, Igesund said, “Ï am very happy I now have a full squad to work with. Thato is a young and very good player.

"We have been keeping an eye on him for quite some time and I believe he will add to the competitiveness within the squad.


“We also need to thank coach Muhsin Ertugral and every Ajax staff member for the cooperation in assisting with the release of the player. Now the focus will be on the playing field as we continue with our preparations.”
