Thuso Phala’s performances for Bafana Bafana against Norway and Algeria have not only alerted some local clubs; it has led to interest from overseas.
The Platinum Stars winger is part of Gordon Igesund’s Africa Cup of Nations squad, and he produced a Man of the Match display in a warm-up match against the Norwegians in Cape Town on January 8.
Some media reports suggest that Phala could be heading back to Kaizer Chiefs, but his agent, Tim Sukazi, tells KickOff.com they have not had any contact with Amakhosi.
“There has been no contact over Phala. If there is any we will have a look of course, but as it stands he is 100 per cent focused on the Nations Cup.
“After the tournament we will see where we stand, but already there has been interest from overseas. A club in Israel has contacted us, while this morning I received a call from someone in Portugal.”
