Twala has 11 goals and 16 assists in 158 games for Pirates, Chippa United, Golden Arrows, Chiefs, Maritzburg United, Free State Stars, Erbil SC, and most recently Callies in all competitions according to FourFourTwo.
While Twala played for Pretoria Callies, he was hoping that the side could gain promotion to the DStv Premiership.
“I have a commitment overseas for next season. I have signed a pre-contract with a team overseas, I can’t tell you whether the team is in Europe or not, but overseas. I joined Callies because I couldn’t sit at home and do nothing," he told SowetanLIVE.
Twala was unable to settle in Iraq, appearing in only 10 games during his brief stay. The former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs forward has explained why he was unable to succeed in other countries. He said it was because the style of football is different overseas.
Nkosingiphile Ngcobo: Fans debate about his form this season
In other soccer news, Briefly News reported that Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Nkosingiphile Ngcobo featured a lot for the team last season but it appears as though he's fell down the pecking order under Stuart Baxter.
Ngcobo got the chance to start against TS Galaxy but made little impact as the match ended 0-0. Now, a fan took to social media to make a statement about the young midfielder and if he actually has what it takes to be a star in Kaizer Chiefs colours. They wrote:
"One day ya'll need to be honest about Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, he is definitely not the player you guys make him appear to be, definitely not, fight me."
