Dikwena lands Lehlogonolo Masalesa's signature

Platinum Stars FC can confirm the acquisition of South African international Lehlogonolo “Vieira” Masalesa, who put pen to paper on Tuesday afternoon.
Miedfield enforcer Masalesa, who recently captained Bafana Bafana at the Cosafa Cup, signed a three year contract with Dikwena. Dikwena general manager Senzo Mazingiza tells Platinumstars.com that Masalesa, who is a former Dikwena player, will bring the much needed balance and experience in the team.
“We are very excited as a club to have landed his signature. It’s a big signing for us. We needed to replace that situation in the midfield so we think that Vieira with his experience will be able to just pluck into that position. It was not an easy signing to do. It took a lot of convincing and lobbying. I am glad he is coming back home. Vieira was part of our team before going to Orlando Pirates. He comes back with a lot of experience. I am sure he will do well for us,” said Mazingiza.
“Vieira is very young. One of the things we needed to look at is to refresh the team so that the players we have can take us further and that they still have legs to run and be able to carry the team. As young as he is, he has got lots of experience, played overseas and played for Pirates one of the biggest teams in Africa. He was part of the squad that played until the finals of CAF Champions League in Cairo.”
Mazingiza revealed that the club will still be active in the market to bolster the squad.
“We are left with three players to sign. We are very close to finalizing with Ennocent Mkhabela. We are hopeful that we will add a goalkeeper and a striker. We would be very competitive. You look at the caliber of our squad and the quality of players that we have signed. We are going to be competitive not only when we play games but in training as well. Our coach Peter Butler will have a big squad to work with. Big in terms of experience but less numbers to work him,” said Mazingiza.
