- Former Orlando Pirates star Sifiso Myeni has been released by GladAfrica Championship side TS Sporting
- The club has now released eight players in total
- Sporting is aiming to trim the squad for the remainder of the season, as only seven matches need to be played
The coronavirus pandemic and lockdowns have changed the landscape of the working and sporting worlds.
The normal club season generally ends in May in most parts of the world, so by now, many players would already be enjoying their holiday.
The other factor is that many players have contracts which expire by June 30. So clubs would typically be able to dedicate this time to relinquish and acquire players.
Although the season is set to resume imminently, GladAfrica Championship side TS Sporting has opted to let eight players go.
Former Orlando Pirates star Sifiso Myeni is one of the eight players who have been released, as Sporting look to trim the fat before the end of the season.
KickOFF.com reported that the club sees no need to retain a bulky squad with only seven matches remaining.
Sporting general manager Vusi Ntimane said, "Myeni's contact was coming to an end 30 June. We just didn't offer him a new contract."
Ntimane added, "The technical team saw no need to have many players to finish the last seven games so we decided to release those they won't be using."
The other seven players who were relieved of their duties are Cebo Masena, Nyiko Sibanda, Sheldon van Wyk, Frank Motebejane, Madoda Motha, Emmanuel Shoyisa, and Phoka Mofokeng.
In other transfer news, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe lavished praise on his technical team for the work put in to acquiring players.
Motsepe also confirmed that the club is targeting two foreign signings.
