Questions are being asked in Port Elizabeth as who was responsible for letting Zambian international Given Singuluma slip through the net.
The former Bay United striker has gone on to help his new side, TP Mazembe in the DR Congo, to the lift African Champions League title and yesterday, the CAF Super Cup.
A goal by Zambian compatriot Stopira Sunzu in the first half, and then a second by Singuluma in the second half saw TP down Stade Malien of Mali 2-0 at the Kenya Stadium yesterday.
Singuluma left Umlilo after they were relegated from the PSL.
He claimed at the time that he had seen little game time under Vladismar Heric and then Khabo Zondo during his one season stay there.
Bay management offered him a new deal, but he rejected it saying he wanted action, not money.
He had an offer from Finland, but opted instead to join the DR Congo giants where he has gone from strength to strength playing against the best in Africa.
