Platinum Stars’ football manager, Senzo Mazingiza, says the club has ‘no intention’ of selling Mogakolodi Ngele.
The Botswana international, who has helped Dikwena to a MTN8 and Nedbank Cup double so far this season, is hot property in Mzansi following a string of impressive performances for Allan Freese’s team.
However, despite the fact that there are a number of top clubs in South Africa keen on signing him, Mazingiza insists to the Siya crew that the 22-year-old is going nowhere.
The player’s agent, Mike Makaab, previously told the crew that their main intentions are to get ‘Tsotso’ overseas, even though clubs such as Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns have both shown a key interest.
Speaking to the Siya crew Mazingiza explained that Ngele still has a long-term contract in Rustenburg, and that there has been no official offers for the player put on his desk.
He said, “Ngele is our player, he’s got a long-term contract with the club and he will most definitely be with us at the end of the season. We’ve no intentions of selling him, and there have been no official offers made for him.”
Ngele’s current deal at Stars runs for another two-and-a-half-years, meaning that any club interested in signing him would have to pay a substantial fee in order to do so.
