PSL

Player clear out at Celtic

2012-05-25 11:07
Johannesburg - Bloemfontein Celtic are planning a mass overhaul of their squad, with coach Clinton Larsen revealing no fewer than 10 players will be shown the door in the off-season.

Phunya Sele Sele have already seen Thokozani Mshengu and Prince Hlela depart for Bidvest Wits and AmaZulu respectively, while the highly rated pair of Erick Mathoho and Clifford Mulenga have also been tipped with a move away from the City of Roses.

"We will probably have as many as 10 players leave the team in the close-season so we will have quite a big overhaul of the squad," Larsen told SuperSport.

Kgotso Moleko has already announced his decision not to renew his contract, which expires in June, while Malawian up-and-comer Limbikani Mzava is believed to be keen on a move to Europe.

Two players already packing their bags are Phenyo Mongalo and Auguston Leonard, whose respective loan deals at the club have come to an end, while Ezenwa Otorogu has been deemed surplus to requirements, and Moses Spandeel has retired.

However, Larsen went on to reveal Celtic will also be making moves to strengthen their squad, with the coach currently in talks with numerous clubs over potential transfers.

He added: "But the management is working hard to bring in new faces and have engaged with a number of other PSL clubs over their players. We should know more about who we will be joining us in the next two or three weeks."

The Siwelele players are currently enjoying a well deserved break, although the pre-season campaign in Bloem starts on June 20, with Celtic looking to improve on their eighth-place finish in the 2011/12 PSL campaign.
