MBABANE – MTN Premier League side Denver Sundowns might lose three of their stars to South Africa’s GladAfrica Championship sides in the new season.

The Manzini-based outfit owned by Premier League of Eswatini (PLE) Chairman Mark Carmichael, who finished on position 11 in the past season,  have offers from South Africa’s second-tier league teams for three of their stars in goalkeeper Lwethu Simelane, midfielder Siphamandla Maseko and Sierra Leone-born import Mohamed Kabia. The three GladAfrica National First Division sides that are after the services of the trio are Black Leopard, Cape Town Spurs and newly-promoted side Magesi. Elvis Dube, who is Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of  Basop Kappa Kappa’,  as the Manzini-based side are fondly known, confirmed that the players were supposed to leave the country this past Sunday for assessment in South Africa (SA).


"The players are supposed to be in Polokwane as we speak, but we are working on certain logistics as the club needs to foot travelling expenses to the neighbouring country,” Dube said. He also revealed that the players were identified by scouts, who came in the country and wanted video clips for them to show the South African teams. “The most wanted player is Siphamandla as he is wanted by the three clubs, especially Black Leopard whose coach has likened him to Mamelodi Sundowns’ Themba Zwane,” he said. He further disclosed that he was speaking with Kabia’s agent yesterday morning asking him about when the player would leave for SA. He then said once all the logistics were done the players would leave for the assessment in South Africa starting with the Limpopo-based sides.
