Orlando Pirates, Free State Stars and Mamelodi Sundowns are preparing to battle for the signature of 20-year-old Polokwane City midfielder Mothusi Gopane.
Gopane put is a superb performance at the Philly's Games tournament held in Tembisa recently.
The midfielder, who operates on both the left and right flanks, turned out for Tembisa Zone 14 – along with Mthokozisi Yende – and was named Player of the Tournament.
His solid showing was enough to impress Ea Lla Koto coach Steve Komphela, who was among the keen spectators at Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa yesterday.
Speaking in an interview with KickOff.com, Gopane confirms that he has been approached by the three teams.
“It was a great honour to be named the Player of the Tournament, and it was the first time I won such a trophy in my soccer career,” the North West-born midfielder tells KickOff.com.
“I have been approached by Free State Stars, Pirates and Sundowns. I still have to chill out and make the right decision because I want to go to a team where I am going to play rather than sit on the bench.”
