Platinum Stars have had no offers for Lindokuhle Mbatha

Posted: 17 January 2014 Time: 11:03

Platinum Stars are playing down reports linking Lindokuhle Mbatha and Tintswalo Tshabalala with moves to the big three clubs. 

Orlando Pirates, who recently added Helder Pelembe, Lwazi Skosana and Ntsikelelo Nyauza to their ranks, are believed to be eyeing Tshabalala and Mbatha, who have both played a key role in Stars’ success story this season.

Mbatha, whose contract with Dikwena runs out at the end of June, is also on the radar of Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs.

The 28-year-old is part of the Bafana Bafana side competing in the African Nations Championships (CHAN), and the two clubs are expected to intensify their bid to rope him in soon after the tournament.  

Stars football manager Senzo Mazingiza says while the Rustenburg-based side is aware of the interest for their players, they will only start weighing their options once they have been formally approached.

“There are no offers yet for Mbatha and Tshabalala so we cannot really say much in this regard,” Mazingiza tells “The two are still our players. They have been part of the team that has been training with the coaches.

“Until we are approached by other clubs for their services, we will continue to regard the speculation as rumours. This stance will only change if and when we are approached by the clubs.”

Tshabalala if he goes to Pirates he will see himself been given a Ticket Next Season to gn to Golden Arrows. Mbatha want to wear a CCL Medal and he is Welcome in Naturena. Love & Peace.

Mbatha is 28 and he has just earned himself a first call up for the national team ??? Pele won his first world cup when he was only 17 ? and we call ourselves a footballing nation yet we are not bold enough to invest in our youth nc nc nc!

Malabulabuand who is to blame boss? if a player is a late bloomer, like mbatha himself, and the likes of majoro, manqele, nomandela etc, how would they receive national call-ups? maybe if you ellaborate further you may be understood.

Didn't this guy grew up eKasi? .... I mean this is one of the few guys who are using their real age?....why did he not cheat like everyone else is doing...if he can say he's 22 you wouldn't disagree...

Anyway uk'bhayiza kwakhe aside, he is really talented...he would be an asset at KC , the last time we had a functional right winger was during the days of Arthur 10111 Zwane....Nale was promising but VV destroyed him...Masango....the least said , the better....

Before the window started we said we will sign 3 or 4 players, Chiefs have confirmed that its gonna be 4. So 2 down, 2 to go.
