Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic confirmed that striker Gabadinho Mhango has signed a pre-contract with Bidvest Wits.

According to the club’s official website, Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala has expressed his dismay at the news.

“We are stunned by Mhango’s pre-contract signing with Wits after having numerous discussions with him and his agent for more than a year.

“Even this past Friday, whilst preparing for the Kaizer Chiefs game, he adamantly denied rumours about his departure and made a commitment that he will extend his contract with us sign. I deem his conduct to be unprofessional”.

“Remember, he has just recovered from injury and both parties agreed to allow him to fully recover then restart negotiations and that is exactly what we have done.

“I was incredibly shocked hearing via the media and later receiving the letter from Wits confirming the signing” Tshabalala continued.

The chairman assured the supporters the team will do the best to retain the players when he added: “We have done everything in our power to keep Mhango but we are left with no option to let him go with immediate effect because he will no longer be 100% committed to the team.

“Our supporters must know we are vigorously searching for another prolific striker that will add value to the team.

“Yes we still have depth but will continue beefing up the squad to the best of our ability”.
