Baroka's Ghanaian trialist disappears


Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele has revealed that much-talked-about Ghanaian trialist has disappeared from the Bakgaga training grounds without a trace.

Ghanaian youngster Richmond Antwi arrived in South Africa on November 20 carrying a huge reputation of having helped his former club Al-Merrikh of Sudan clinch their domestic league title.

Mphahlele says due to some past experiences, the club could not just sign the 19-year-old without a convincing trial.

"Aah that guy from Ghana has left," Mphahlele tells

"They told me he's gone. We last saw him last week Thursday. Yesterday when they went to check him where we had put him he was nowhere to be found. He took all his bags and left."

Mphahlele says the club will not waste energy looking for the striker.

"We are not phoning them, he is looking for a team, we are not looking for a team. He is the one looking for a team. Now we can't go all out looking for him. Why should we look for him? Because he's the one looking for work.

"Us, we have players. And you know he thinks he can tell us that, 'I'm a top scorer, top scorer.' Then show us. We put him in, he doesn't score. We put you in again, you don't score. We put him in twice at training, no goal, no assist.

"How many players have come here and get signed without being assessed and we had to terminate their contracts immediately after that? How many? Now we are also afraid... we can't carry on doing the same mistake. We are learning."
