Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila head coach Dylan Kerr has confirmed that midfielder George Lebese is no longer part of the club.
Lebese had joined the Limpopo side in April this year, after terminating his contract at American club Switchbacks.
This was due to the fact that the former Kaizer Chiefs player could not rejoin his teammates in the USA because of COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Speaking ahead of their Nedbank Cup final clash against Chippa United on Saturday, TTM coach Dylan Kerr told reporters why Lebese’s stay at the club was short-lived.
“As far as I know George (Lebese) is no longer with us due to his work visa,” said Kerr.
“We can’t get clearance for him. So I think George agreed… I don t know because I have not seen him. I think George has gone home. I don’t know if he is still part of TTM but I can understand his frustrations. When he came he was way off his best, he was risking serious injuries if we had played him in a competitive match.
“Because he had not been training, he had not been playing since November so it was a long way start from the rest of the squad. We tried very hard to get his work visa but unfortunately the legality of it… In America he was already contracted to that club, he wasn’t really a free agent so we couldn’t really sign him. The last time I spoke to him was last week Friday and he hinted to me that he was going home,” explained Kerr.
