Cape Town - Black Leopards coach, Zeca Marques, tells Sport24 that the owners of the Thohoyandou club have promised to hang onto star players Roggert Nyundu and Siphelele Ntshangase.

Leopards were unfortunate to miss out on promotion to Jomo Cosmos on goal difference but the core of the side is likely to still be around next season, according to Marques.

"I chatted to the chairman on Tuesday," Marques reveals.

"As we speak, maybe there will be one or two players leaving which is normal in these circumstances.

"But he has told me that the players that I want are staying."

When pushed for an idea of which players he had in mind the manager opened up about his desire to keep his star striking partners at the club.

“The Nyundu’s, the Ntshangase’s, you know those type of players will be staying.

"But in football today you stay and tomorrow you are gone and that’s the way it works.

"But for now the core of the team are staying. The core, that’s 80%.”

If Ntshangase performs well on international duty with Bafana there will likely be a host of big PSL clubs after his signature.

Nyundu, on the other hand, is contracted to Polokwane City and has already been contacted by a number of clubs, both in locally and abroad.
