Cape Town - Siyabonga
Shoyisa expressed shock at being deemed surplus to requirements at the
University of Pretoria after regular game-time last season.

for Arubi at Tuks
The defender played an integral role in the heart of defence
for AmaTuks last term, racking up the most appearances for an outfield player
after featuring in 29 games in all competitions, with only goalkeeper
Washington Arubi appearing more.
However, Shoyisa has since been placed on the transfer list,
and the 26-year-old was understandably dismayed at the club's decision to
discard him ahead of the new season.
"I spoke to the coach [Sammy Troughton] on the phone
and he told me that they have new plans for the new season so they need someone
new in my position," Shoyisa told KickOff.
"I never got a hint that I will not be wanted next
season through the whole of the past season when I was playing regularly.
"Maybe this could have been better if they had informed
me about their decision well in advance. I am also still at home for now waiting for the club
and my manager to work something out."
