Cape Town - Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele has
confirmed that former Orlando Pirates midfielder Thandani Ntshumayelo is
training with Bakgaga in the hopes of landing a contract.
The 28-year-old Ntshumayelo played his last competitive
match in April 2016 but was then banned for cocaine use.
He served a two-year ban for taking the banned substance and
is now looking for club to resurrect his career.
'Bibo' had been training with Highlands Park and also had
lengthy trial at Bidvest Wits but no deal was offered to the player.
Now he is at the Limpopo-based outfit hoping to impress
coach Wedson Nyirenda and the Baroka chairman hopes it goes well.
Mphahlele told the KickOff website: "Yes, we are still
checking him man. He started Monday. I haven't received a report yet from the
"I'm still waiting for the report. We are hoping he
does well, and we sign him. We are hoping, it's up to him. If he signs it will
be for now, he is free."
Ntshumayelo started his career at Supersport United before
going on to become a star for Orlando Pirates.
