Gift Sithole has arrived at Platinum Stars for assessment under club coach, Allan Freese and his technical team.
It was revealed by the Siya crew that Sithole was recently handed his clearance by Arrows to allow him to join a club of his choice, although he appeared to be one of the influential players for Mark Harrison at Abafana Bes’thende this season.
A source at Dikwena confirmed to the Siya crew that Sithole is one of the players that were at the gym with the rest of the players on Wednesday, except for the Bafana Bafana quartet of Lindokuhle Mbatha, Vuyo Mere, Siyabonga Mpontshane and Tsepo Gumede.
“Gift Sithole is here. He arrived today. He was with the team when we went to the gym today. But he didn’t get a chance to train because we weren’t training, we just went to gym. I think he will get a chance when we play friendly games on the weekend,” said the source.
The four players, who were with Bafana in Cape Town for the CHAN tournament, have been given until Friday before they return to training with the side.
