Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele says his club has got enough contracted players to finish the season.
There is currently a huge debate going on about how Absa Premiership and GladAfrica Championship clubs are going to come around the issue of players who will have their contracts expiring on June 30 if the 2019/2020 season happens to be not completed by then.
Mphahlele admits though that as clubs they are concerned about the situation. “Yes, we are worried, but we will have a meeting to discuss that,” he admitted.
“Yes, we do have players who have their contracts expiring. Ja it depends if they agree (to finish the season with Baroka), you know sometimes they’ve signed pre-contracts with other teams.
“So, it depends on the team, if the team needs them and then they agree, it will all be okay. But if the team needs them and they have signed a pre-contract with other teams then that’s the problem.”
Mphahlele says the plan is to use the other fringe players who will still be contracted to the club to finish the season.
“We’ve got enough staff, players who’ve got contracts coming out to an end it’s maybe four, five. We got about forty players; they will finish the league. So, you know we won’t be stranded, if that situation is not improving,” he concluded.
