Phala meeting with management

Transfer News

Phala wants to leave Matsatsantsa due to limited game-time, having fallen out of favour under coach Kaitano Tembo.

The 32-year-old, who is believed to be on the radar of Highlands Park, Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits, has only made 11 appearances in all competitions this season.

"It's a tricky situation as you know teams will say whatever to tarnish players' names, but at the end of the day the story lies with SuperSport United and Thuso," the source told

"They both need to sort out their mess. It happens when someone wants their clearance and people start to fight in the media. People who understand football clearly, they know that Kaitano has a problem with Thuso.

"Do you remember in the Pirates game he pulled him out within 25 minutes. That was a clear fight. But everything will be clearer either on Wednesday or Thursday after the hearing. Phala will appear in (sic) the club's disciplinary committee either today or tomorrow."
