Cape Town - Black Leopards team manager Mlungisi 'Professor' Ngubane says he is surprised that Tefu Mashamaite left the club as they were considering offering him a deal.

Mashamaite was recently on trial with Lidoda Duvha and he seems to have impressed during his short time with the side.

The former Kaizer Chiefs played in the ABC Motsepe League last season for Baberwa but appears determined to earn himself another Absa Premiership contract.

Nonetheless, he lasted just two days with Leopards before making the switch to go on trial with Chippa United.

Ngubane told KickOff: "Mashamaite has decided to leave. I don't know if he was going elsewhere, but he is not with us now.

"Ja, he trained one week. When we started to have interest in him and then he disappeared, he never said anything. I spoke to him and his manager as well and he also said he never told him he was going. Ja so there's nothing we can do there."
