Manqele future uncertain after setback


KickOff can confirm that a former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns goal poacher is without a club yet again after parting ways with his GladAfrica Championship employers.

This website has been told that Edward Manqele has reached an agreement to go separate ways with Pretoria Callies just five months after joining the club.

Manqele has battled with injuries through his stay with Callies featuring in only four matches.

According to information reaching this website, the writing was already on the wall that Manqele will not be staying as both club and player were not happy.

The 34-year-old has now reached an amicable agreement with the club to cut ties.

Callies – who are struggling near the drop zone – have decided to cut ties with several players.

Manqele was a hit when he broke through into the PSL with Free State Stars a decade ago leading to a move to Sundowns.

With the Brazilians, he battled and then spent time at Moroka Swallows and Chippa United before finding his way to Chiefs.

His career has been rolling in the abyss in recent times finding little joy at Royal Eagles, Real Kings and TTM down in the first division.

Callies started out the season with several players who have worn the Chiefs jersey before amongst them Manqele, Collins Mbesuma, Philani Cele, Sizwe Twala, Itumeleng Shopane, Mpho Sitayitayi, Edmore Chirambadare along with Keletso Sifama and Thabo Mokoena who are on loan from AmaKhosi.
