According to iDiski Times, Mohafe said Appollis, who made the recent Bafana squad littered with Stellenbosch FC players, is determined to earn a dream move overseas.

Mohafe said:

"The motivation that he wants to go elsewhere is the driving force for him – not going elsewhere around the country but going abroad, that is what's driving him."

Fans say Appollis must be patient

Local football fans took to social media, calling for Appollis to stay in Mzansi to develop his game while some feel Polokwane will be tempted by PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

Joshua Cbia Shabangu says a local move is more likely:

"It's Sundowns, mark my words."

Tom Zimvo says Appollis has experience:

"He once played against the current EPL champions."

Thabo Caterpillar's Galeka says Polokwane has other concerns:

"Phuthi must focus on his coaching job and let the management do their work."
