Hopeful Bibo back to training alone


Thandani Ntshumayelo is no longer training with SuperSport United to keep fit as he continues to hold out hope of making a return to football.

The former Orlando Pirates midfielder was told to stop training with the Tshwane giants last month and is still looking for a team to play for.

'Bibo' has been struggling to find a club since his four-year drug ban was lifted in 2018.

During his return he has trained with Absa Premiership sides like Bidvest Wits, Highlands Park and Baroka FC, where he signed a short-term contract earlier this year but was released at the end of the 2018/19 season.

"Ah those guys [SuperSport] didn't give me a job," Ntshumayelo tells KickOff.com.

"No I'm no longer training with them now, at the moment I'm training alone. They told me they have enough midfielders, they will see in January."

Matsatsantsa media officer Brian Moshoeshoe has explained that there was not much chance of Ntshumayelo earning a contract.

"He has left the team, that's correct. He was not on trial, basically he was injured. He was with us for our pre-season camp in Polokwane, it was just to get the lad fit. He played a couple of friendlies and we had a look at him," Moshoeshoe says.

"We were just giving him a chance to train with us, like at Bidvest Wits. So it wasn't maybe a trial, we just had a look at him."
