Baroka complete Afonso signing


Baroka FC have confirmed the signing of former Mamelodi Sundowns winger Leonardo Afonso on a two-season deal with an option of a third.

Afonso left Sundowns in 2018 and joined Polokwane City in order to keep fit after struggling with a host of injury issues that stunted his development at Chloorkop.

However, Baroka have now placed their faith in the technically gifted winger, who can also feature in the No.10 role, with a long-term deal.

"New alert singing for Baroka FC, Leonardo Afonso from Polokwane Academy on a one-year and seven months contract and optional one-year," the short statement said about the 23-year-old.

Fifth-placed Bakgaga face off against Chippa United on Sunday in their next DStv Premiership encounter and will be hoping to maintain their early-season form.
