Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns
midfielder George Lebese has revealed his struggle to find a new club
Lebese is currently a free agent and training on his own
after being released by Sundowns at the start of the season.
The 30-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan
at SuperSport United.
Lebese admits it has been more difficult to find a club
after leaving Sundowns than he had anticipated.
"No one calls, and what I've heard, I think people have
this illusion that I'm asking for big money... I don't know about that,"
said Lebese in an interview on Marawa TV.
"And really, since being free, from my side I thought
it was going to be not as hard as it is right now to find myself on the field
"Because now I'm sitting at home and I'm training and
I'm hoping and I'm hoping, but nothing's coming and I'm like 'okay, how bad
this could be'."
And Lebese's hopes of joining SuperSport permanently have
been dashed for the time being with Matsatsantsa mentor Kaitano Tembo having
deemed the player surplus to requirements.
"Well, I think for now we are focusing on the players
we have, I think we've got enough numbers in that position," Tembo told
"We've got (Aubrey) Modiba, (Kudakwashe) Mahachi, (Thabo) Qalinge and (Evans) Rusike so we are a bit loaded in that department,
for now, so we will only focus on what we have at the moment."
