Baroka FC say only R15 million will tempt them to sell Tshepo Matete

Baroka FC CEO Morgan Mamilla admits that it would be almost impossible to pry Tshepo 'Skhwama' Matete away from the club, but any offer above R15 million may pique their interest.
"Whoever wants Skhwama must prepare R15 million in cash, no lay-byes, no swap deals, only cash. But only three teams can afford him in South Africa and that's Kaizer Chiefs, Sundowns and Pirates,' Mamilla tells KickOff.com.
The Baroka official claims that coach Kgoloko Thobejane is the one encouraging Matete to perform his magic on the field and is very impressed with the player.
Matete appeared for Baroka this past weekend in the F.A.M.E Charity Cup in Polokwane and turned on the style for supporters at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
He made a substitute appearance against Black Leopards in the semi-final and was given a start against Kaizer Chiefs, producing plenty of magic to frustrate the Glamour Boys.
"Every time we play against those three teams (Chiefs, Pirates or Sundowns) 'Skhwama' will start. Our coach (Kgoloko Thobejane) likes him so much," says Mamilla.
"He is the one who told us on Saturday that the boy will start in the final. He is the only player that attracts 5000 supporters (by himself) for a soccer match. No other player has ever done that in this country except Doctor Khumalo."
