Cape Town - Free State Stars will assess the fitness level of veteran defensive midfielder, Benson Mhlongo, before taking decision on the player.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates player confirmed that he is training with Free State Stars following his departure from Polokwane City.

“Look, our technical team is mostly focused on young players undergoing trials here, but Benson is such a good leader the team could give him something if he can prove himself valuable to the team,” the source said.

“Until then, there is nothing as far as he is concerned.”

Ea Lla Koto is currently holding their pre-season camp in Benoni before heading to Lesotho for a number of friendly matches.
