Baroka CEO Morgan Mammila says the club is done signing players in the transfer market, unless someone “special like Lionel Messi” comes along.
He said this after confirming the signing of former Maritzburg United goalkeeper Virgil Vries, who will compete for the number one jersey with Oscarine Masuluke.
Vries has signed a one-year contract and has a one-year option. He brings valuable experience having played regularly for Maritzburg and also for his country Namibia. Vries recently played in the Cosafa Cup and will be ready to fight Masuluke for the number one spot.
Baroka conceded soft goals last season and he could be the man to help the team improve at the back.
“In the PSL we need competition. The competition of both goalkeepers will benefit the team and the players themselves. His experience will help us a lot because we want to do well this season,” Mammila tells KickOff.com.
Baroka have recently promised to make a shock signing in the transfer market, but Mammila says they are done. They don’t want to sign average players, unless they can find a special player.
“We have finished, but if Lionel Messi comes, we won’t say no. We will only sign special players. We won’t sign average players,” he says.
