New Baroka signing set for debut


Newly signed Baroka signing Leonardo Afonso is expected to make his debut against Chippa United on Sunday afternoon.

The 23-year-old former Mamelodi Sundowns development player was unveiled by the Limpopo side this week after signing a two-year deal with an option to renew.

Speaking to FARPost ahead of the encounter, Afonso says he is looking forward to a special moment in his career.

“It’s a big moment for me I won’t lie,” says Afonso.

“It will be something special for me because it will be my first appearance in the PSL. I believe in my capabilities and I am looking forward to it.

“I have been out from the game for a few months so I need to improve on my fitness, my coach has been pushing me at training so I just need to push myself on the fitness part,” he added.

The match starts at 15:30 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
