Dikwena hunting players to bolster squad
Following the acquisition of striker Maboke Matlakala, Platinum Stars are still in the market looking to lure more talent.
Dikwena General Manager Senzo Mazingiza tells Platinumstars.com that the club is still in search of players to make the team strong ahead of the upcoming season. Malakala was signed from Baroka FC.
“We can confirm that Matlakala has signed with us and we are hopeful that he can add value. We have been eying the youngman. We have been looking for his signature. We had to speak to his club. We have agreed terms with them. He is now our player. Bongi Ntuli and Henrico Botes are no longer with us. So it’s key that we brought Matlakala to the club. Ntuli was on loan from Sundowns and talks of keeping him for long term did not materialize. We are moving ahead. We hope Matlakala will fill that gap,” said Mazingiza.
“Very soon the club will be making announcements. Most of the players are still contracted to their clubs. We will follow the rules and tread carefully. We are really hunting players that will assist in ensuring that we have got a balanced side going forward.”
Meanwhile Dikwena players – goalkeeper Stephen Hoffman and defender Sphiwe Mnguni have been called to Bafana Bafana squad for CHAN qualifier against Botswana at Francistown Stadium in Botswana this coming Saturday. Mazingiza says it bodes well for the players and the club for the duo to be on national duty.
“It’s good for the young ones to get an opportunity to play at that level. We are excited as a club. It can only mean our players have been put under a microscope. That means there’s something right that we are doing at the club. Having played in CAF and finishing in the group stages, these calls ups are good for the players. We are excited. We hope this can assist in bringing awareness to the brand of the club,” said Mazingiza.
