Vasco da Gama show four more the door

Posted: 13 August 2010 Time: 15:31

Premiership rookies Vasco da Gama are continuing to clean up their squad ahead of their debut season in top flight by releasing former youth international Ashley Opperman. 

Also shown the door is Marvin Bean, Marlon Pitts and Congolese defender Michelin Kanika Matondo, while Miguel do Espirito Santo's is a 'pending' due to his long term knee injury.   Matondo has already attracted interest from Hanover Park and Thanda Royal while Pitts, Opperman and Bean are also expected to stay put with Cape Town based First Division teams.   Opperman has previously played in the PSL at Ajax Cape Town and Moroka Swallows, while Bean had a stint with Santos.   Standing on the edge of the fence is the duo of Anthony Moniz and Keenan Grever who are yet to get a convincing word from the club as to whether about they will be kept.   Vasco have already released Christian Moudouthe-Bille, Ntsikelelo Stephen Phama and Hartman Toromba from the squad that they had last season in the First Division.   In line with making space for the new players that they have signed, Vasco have been left with no option but to release those that they deem excess baggage ahead of their PSL campaign.   Vasco have already signed Sibusiso Zuma, Martin Carelse, Rudi Isaacs, Francois Adams, Direng Moloi while they have Excellent Walaza, Josephy Kamwendo and Lebohang Mothibantwa on loan from Orlando Pirates.     Vasco open up their season in a fortnight against Pirates at Cape Town.

I have been watching Vasco da Gama since the days of F.C. Fortune. They have an astute coach in Carlos das Neves, BUT, I believe that they are making a VERY BIG MISTAKE to release so many of the players that WON THEM PROMOTION IN THE FIRST PLACE...SO MANY PROMOTED TEAMS FALL INTO THIS TRAP...THE RELEASED PLAYERS WOULD WANT TO PROVE TO EVERYBODY THAT THEY CAN PLAY IN THE P.S.L.

who is Direng Moloi ?
i dnt know why u claim to not know Diramg Moloi of all players who have signed..why do i get a feeling tht u know where ths player comes from but if its true u dnt know him....dont worry my man its just a matter aof time before u know him, a lot of people will luv him whilst some will eaqually hate him.....but thats a good question though, it has happened manier times in Football whereby people says who's that guy..and then the player introduces himself awesomely.

Vasco is about to introduce one of the best Midfielders Africa has ever had...Our own Patrick Viera if u like..Dirang Malan Moloi
