Semenya lands new deal in Limpopo


Polokwane City have brought in ex-player Thabiso Semenya to assist the club for the remainder of the season.

The 37-year-old defender trained with the Limpopo side for about two weeks and has been signed to bring stability to the club's leaking backline.

It will not be the first time Semenya plays for Rise and Shine. In 2016 he joined from Platinum Stars before he was released in 2018 and ended up at neighbours Baroka.

Although he played a key role in Bakgaga winning the Telkom Knockout that year, his stay there didn't last long as he found himself clubless at the end of the 2018/19 season, and had been ever since.

"Ja, it's true. It happened yesterday. It's for the remainder of the season. My job is to help where help is required," Semenya tells

Semenya says seeing his former team struggling the way they are did made him unhappy.

"Obviously it didn't sit well with me, that's why I decided to go and train with them. When you are a senior it is something you need to do to guide the others, and show them how it's done because most of them are injured," he adds.

"The only difference between the Polokwane I played for and this one is the change of coaches, in terms of style of play and things like that."

So is this the former Carara Kicks, Platinum Stars, Baroka and Rise and Shine player's last contract as a professional player?

"I will see how these six months go," he replies.
