Banyana duo set for China?

Posted: 7 February 2019 Time: 06:00

Banyana Banyana players Thembi Kgatlana and Linda Motlhalo are close to finding new clubs abroad after parting ways with Houston Dash.

Both players could make moves to China, according to reports coming out of the US.

“We cannot say much at the moment but we are very close to confirming new clubs as negotiations are at a very advanced stage and we could sign very soon,” Kgatlana told the Safa website.

“It is true though that we have left Houston Dash, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the club for everything they have done for us. They gave a great chance to grow our careers and we will never forget that. They opened their doors for us and made us feel comfortable. We were home away from home. But above all, they took a chance with us and allowed us to showcase the South African talent in this highly-competitive league –  we are forever indebted to them. And gratitude also goes to former coach of Houston Dash Vera Pauw, who initiated our move.”

Kgatlana and Motlhalo are part of the Banyana squad that will be competing at the Cyprus Cup later this month. Banyana open their campaign with a Group B fixture against Finland on February 27.
