- Mphahlele said even if he had an offer for Chawapiwa he would not sell the player because the club needed his talent
Baroka FC chairman Kurishi Mphahlele wants the PSL’s big teams to stop trying to sign Talent Chawapiwa and to stop their practice of poaching talented players from smaller teams. Mphahlele said he had not received an offer for his star player.
Mphahlele rubbished reports that he had received an offer from Kaizer Chiefs for Chawapiwa and said there had been no contact between Baroka and the PSL giants about a possible deal.
The Baroka boss admitted that he would not accept a deal for Chawapiwa because his talents and skills were needed at the club. Mphahlele wants the bigger teams in the league to start scouting players in the same way which small teams do instead of poaching talented stars from small clubs.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the Zimbabwean-born Chawapiwa has impressed onlookers in the PSL in recent matches and has firmly established his reputation as a rising star in the league.
Goal.com reported that Chawapiwa was particularly impressive in Baroka’s recent match against Kaizer Chiefs. His exploits helped Baroka hold the Glamour Boys to a 1-1 draw in their PSL encounter.
Mphahlele would not comment on statements made by Baroka CEO Morgan Mammila who said at the end of August the club would definitely allow Chawapiwa to leave at the end of the season.
Mammila confirmed that the club had decided to keep Chawapiwa for the remainder of the 2018/19 season but would accept offers at the end of the season.
