captain Lefa Tsutsulupa could all be playing alongside Didier Drogba
next season if Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua are successful in bids for
The Dube Birds' players impressed while on a pre-season tour of
China this past week and with coach Gordon Igesund a target for Bafana
Bafana following the sacking of Pitso Mosimane, a number of players
could exit the club.
The big-spending Chinese outfit also have Nikolas Anelka on their
books and recently completed a deal for former Argentina boss Sergio
Swallows brand manager Siya Sangweni told the Sowetan: "Representatives of Shenhua were impressed by some of our players, they expressed interest in signing them.
"We are waiting for them to come back to us. That's all I can say at this stage.
"I know the Chinese are looking for players, but I have not heard
anything at this stage about me also being on their wanted list.
"It will be great for me to further my soccer career abroad,
Shenhua are a big club in China. They are trying to recruit top players
to join them."
