Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo has suggested that
forward Fagrie Lakay moved to Wits in the January transfer window due
Reports emerged last month that Lakay would sign a
pre-contract with the Clever Boys and then make a move to the Gavin
Hunt-coached outfit at the end of 2018/19.
However, both sides decided to make a move happen in January
as Mxolisi Macuphu went the other way on a loan deal.
21-year-old Lakay is regarded as one of South African
football's brightest prospects and has been tipped for a stellar career with
Bafana Bafana as well.
The player had played seven times for United prior to his
switch to Wits but is yet to make his debut for his new team.
Tembo told reporters: "With Fagrie it had to do with
contractual challenges. I think he decided to move because probably he was
offered more, you know how it is.
"His contract was coming to an end and we could not do
anything to stop him. It was his decision and we have got to move on from
United are set to face Orlando Pirates on Wednesday night at
Kick-off is at 19:30.
