Chipezeze : The writing was already on the wall


Zimbabwe international Elvis Chipezeze has revealed how his future with Baroka FC was going to pan out if the club was not relegated.

The goalkeeper has been released from his contract as the club is understandably trying to cut costs while preparing for life in the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

"We had a meeting with the chairman and we came to an agreement that the time was right for me to move on, it's part of the game," He tells

"I have served them well there and had a very good relationship with everyone.

"I knew this day was going to come when I will have to say my goodbyes to the club.

"It's not that I didn't want to play in the NFD, I just thought the time was up for me you know.

"Even if we survived relegation I would have left anyway, we discussed this thing a long time ago with the chairman.

"So I was leaving anyway, my future at Baroka was decided a long time ago.

"The writing was on the wall already for me.

"But I enjoyed every minute and every second I spent at Baroka I must say...

"I think it was high time I looked for a new challenge, I had a good relationship with the chairman and we discussed this thing at length,

"And we agreed it was time, whether we stayed in the Premiership or not, it had nothing to do with anything.

"I had already discussed my departure with him, he already knew, So it was going to happen anyway.

"I'm going to discuss with my representative and see what is on the table.

"But one thing is for sure, I'm looking to stay in South Africa."
