Chabangu Given Leave At Chippa

Lerato Chabangu could be set for a move away from Chippa United at the end of the season. The midfielder, who has been a notable absentee from Dan Malesela’s match day squads for Chippa, has not been training with the team in recent times.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns player last turned out for the Port Elizabeth outfit during their 3-2 loss against Baroka FC in the last 32 stage of the Nedbank Cup in March.

Having made only four starts for the Chilli Boys in their impressive Absa Premiership campaign for the 2015/16 season, the 30-year-old has been completely out of the picture at the club, with his last league appearance and inclusion to the 18-man match day squad being against Mpumalanga Black Aces in January - when he came on as a second half substitute for Buyani Sali at Mbombela Stadium.

“Look, the situation with Chabangu is that he is still on the club’s books, but I don’t think he is in the plans going forward. I don’t think he has a future with the club. He is no longer training with the team. He is still around here in Port Elizabeth but he is not training with the team. I hear that he has been told to stop training with the team. The club’s office will know better than I do,” a source told the Siya crew.

Contacted for comment, Chippa’s CEO Peter Koutroulis told the Siya crew that the dreadlocked player has been given a leave by the club.

“Lerato is not with the club because he had personal issues. He asked the club to give him leave to sort out those issues. We have given him leave because, you know, we are human beings, do you understand? If people have problems we need to support them. So, yes, Lerato needed to go home to sort out personal issues,” said Koutroulis.
