Defender On Brink Of US After Letsoaka Departure
Former Mpumalanga Black Aces defender, Roger da Costa, could be plying his trade in the United States of America shortly as he awaits his green card.
The 30-year-old centre back had been training with Bloemfontein Celtic until recently, however Serame Letsoaka’s departure brought that venture to an end and he also turned down the chance to sign for Cape Town All Stars as he mulls over his future.
Speaking in issue 1000 of Soccer Laduma, the ex-Moroka Swallows man explained his current situation, saying, “I was at Bloemfontein Celtic a couple of weeks ago, but then they fired Serame. It’s been a bit of bad timing, to be honest, but I have had some contact here and in the NASL in the States for the new year.
“I obviously decided not to join Cape Town All Stars because it didn’t feel right. Working with no agent isn’t easy, but I prefer not to. The next transfer window should be interesting for me, I think.
“Rayo Oklahoma and Puerto Rico FC have contacted me at this point, but any move relies on my papers being ready in time for pre-season.”
Both Oklahoma and Puerto Rico are playing in the NASL at present, but will no doubt have their eyes set on reaching the MLS at some stage in their future.
