Baroka star sad to leave


Baroka have decided against giving a 2-month contracts extension to midfielder Collins Makgaka and striker Prince Nxumalo after their contracts came to an end.

The pair officially parted ways with Bakgaga on Tuesday, 30 June and will now not be able to register with any club until the current season concludes.

Makgaga who began his professional career at the Limpopo side has expressed his disappointment on not being able to agree on at least a short tem deal until the end of the season.

“Yes I would have loved to stay at the club (until the end of season) but since things went the other way it is still okay,” he said.

“It is so sad to leave the team that made me who I am because this is a team that took me from the amateur level to where I am so today I am this player because of them. I would like to thank the Chairman Mr. (Khurishi) Mphahlele for giving me an opportunity to play in the professional level because it is not anyone who can give you that chance so I really appreciate that and grateful for that opportunity.”

“We spoke (with Khurishi Mphahlele) and I think we didn’t have an agreement so that’s when we decided not to extend but we spoke about my contract coming to an end and I think I was not in the plans for them to play me for the remaining matches,” added the 24-year-old.

The fan favorite says nothing concrete has come on the table for him as yet.

Since joining the club while they were campaigning in the GladAfrica Championship in 2015, Makgaga has played 70 matches netting 5 goals.
