Cape Town - Former Platinum Stars midfielder Lebo Ramolesa has revealed that he turned down the chance to train with Kaizer Chiefs in favour of having a trial with Mpumalanga Black Aces.

The 25-year-old has been without a club since leaving Dikwena in July of last year, and last turned out for First Division club Roses United late last season on a temporary basis.

Ramolesa is now eyeing a return to the Premiership, and was offered the opportunity to train with Chiefs' development team in a bid to catch the eye of head coach Stuart Baxter.

However, while grateful for the chance afforded to him by the Glamour Boys, Ramolesa chose to take a different path.

"I went to Chiefs before I came to Aces. I communicated with Bobby (Motaung) and he told me that I should go and train with the reserve side under Coach Ace. I was told that the coach (Baxter) would monitor my progress," Ramolesa told Soccer-Laduma.

"The opportunity to come and train with Aces availed itself and I came here. So I was at Chiefs before I came here (Aces). You know, the Chiefs guys know me very well because I was at their development when I started football."
