Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces coach Muhsin Ertugral says the reason he never bought Calvin Kadi was a financial one.

Kadi has battled to stake his place in the Bidvest Wits side, having made only four substitute showings off the bench for Gavin Hunt’s team this season.

He spent some time training with Aces during the transfer window, but a move failed to materialise, Ertugral explaining that the former Jomo Cosmos marksman would simply have cost too much.

"He was on the market and we could have taken him but we have a budget that we have to stick to at the club," Ertugral told the KickOff.

"So I would say financial limitations is what made us not take him on board. I know Calvin’s qualities and could have taken him on had it not been for the budget that we work according to here at the club."
