PSL clubs warned over Bafana star

Premiership

Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele has given the reason why Premier Soccer League clubs should not bother enquiring about one of his star players. 

Evidence Makgopa stole the lime light in Bafana's 3-2 international friendly win over the Uganda Cranes last week, bagging a brace after coming on from the bench at the start of the second-half.

In his 29 appearances for Bakgaga this season, the 21-year-old forward scored seven goals and provided three assists to also be crowned the DStv Premiership's Young Player of the Season.

However, after his national team performance week, Mphahlele has warned rival clubs to not even try and approach him for the young, rising star's services.

"I don't want those offers," Mphahlele tells KickOff.com. "That includes all the club's players. No one is for sale. We are not selling our boys, we are selling nothing. 

"Why must we sell? For money? No, we are not struggling financially. We are still right. Makgopa is not for sale. We still want to polish him to be a top, top striker."

The outspoken club boss further revealed how he landed Makgopa and insists he has already warded off interest from local rivals.

"I discovered him in the tournaments back at home [in Limpopo]. There's other clubs I've already told he is not for sale. It's not only Makgopa, also some of my boys," he adds.

"They also have MDC in their teams, they should also promote their own MDC players. My boys are from our MDC. You see there's a problem because they don't trust their own youth. 

"Me, I play these boys so they can improve. They are signing 30-year-olds, that's their problem. They don't have development strategies."
