Bibo IS Back – From Drugs Ban To PSL Rebirth

Thandani Ntshumayelo has been given the chance to rekindle his football career in the Premier Soccer League, signing a short-term deal in the Absa Premiership.
 
 
The Siya crew reported last week that the 29-year-old midfielder, who had been training with Bidvest Wits and Highlands Park, had attracted interest from Baroka FC, and after undergoing a medical on Thursday it has been revealed that he has now joined the club.  
 
Last year ‘Bibo’ successfully appealed a four-year ban for cocaine use, which was handed down by the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS), and his four-year sentence was reduced to two. 
 
Having already served two years of the ban, it was confirmed that the former Orlando Pirates man could now get back to playing professional football, and he will be hoping to play his part in securing Bakgaga’s top-flight status. 
 
 
The crew has been informed that the ex-SuperSport United man has penned a short-term deal with Baroka until the end of the season as they look to check out the impact that he can make, after which they will assess his more long-term future. 
 
The player’s representative, Mpho Sethaba, said, "Yes, Bibo has signed with Baroka until the end of the season, the idea is for him to play in the remaining games. We will be in communication with the club and the idea is to explore the possibility of a more permanent contract at the end of the season. That obviously depends on what transpires between now and then."
 
‘Bibo’ can now be registered immediately with the PSL, although it remains to be seen when he will get the chance to make his Absa Premiership return.
