Benson Mhlongo to leave Platinum Stars

Platinum Stars have decided against renewing veteran defender Benson Mhlongo’s contract.
The former Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates player has played a key role in Dikwena’s success over the last two seasons, winning both the Telkom Knockout and the MTN8.
However, it seems the two parties have failed to agree on terms for a new deal, leaving the 33-year-old free to join another club when his contract expires next month.
“Mhlongo met with club management last week but couldn’t agree on the contract,” a KickOff.com source says. “He is now moving on with his life.”
Meanwhile, veteran Namibian striker Henrico Botes will also leave the club when his contract expires in June.
