Baroka reveal signings already made

Premiership

Baroka are not waiting for the outcome of the current PSL campaign and have already made signings for next season.

With the league on a forced break most local teams have shut down all operations, including contract negotiations, while they wait to see if and when the season can be completed.

But Bakgaga, who were starting to enjoy their football before lockdown as they reached the Nedbank Cup semi-finals, have planned ahead no matter what decision is taken by the authorities on what happens next.

"I'm not worried about losing players because those who will leave, their contracts end in June, and we've already made arrangements about the new season," chairman Khurishi Mphahlele tells KickOff.com.

"It's not a good time for me to tell you about those new arrangements, but I can only tell you that we've made some signings for next season."

Mphahlele expresses his desire to see the conclusion of the current season but only if it is safe to do so.

"If, and that's a big if, the League decides to end the season we must be reasonable and support whatever decision is taken," he says.

"It's affecting us because we are not playing, and if the environment allows we would like to go back on the pitch and compete.

"But people must understand it's not about one team, it's about all the teams."
