Bapela’s presence at Limpopo side explained


Football legend Alex Bapela has surfaced at Limpopo ABC Motsepe League side Ditlou FC.

Bapela recently parted ways with DStv Premiership club Sekhukhune United where he was the football director. The 51-year-old was not part of the list of the club’s technical team members released a few weeks ago.

FARPost spotted the former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder conducting the training session of the Limpopo club at Groblersdal on Tuesday.

“We have Barnes Bapela here to help prepare the team for next season,” club Chairman Mash Maila told FARPost.

“He is here to help us to assemble the team but we will see what happens before the season start and take it from there.”

Bapela was Sekhukhune’s director of football since their days in the Gauteng ABC Motsepe League and during their stay in the GladAfrica Championship.

But this publication has been reliably informed that a fall out with the club’s hierarchy led to his departure.
