Makgaka awaits Baroka fate

Collins Makgaka says he will wait to see if Baroka take up the option of extending his stay with the Premier Soccer League club.

The 23-year-old is currently the club's longest serving player, having signed for Baroka in 2015.

Makgaka's current deal expires at the end of the suspended 2019/20 PSL season.

He is yet to hold talks over a new deal, and with league action still very much at a standstill, Makgaka's future is currently in limbo.

He told the Sowetan: "I don't know what will happen because lately I have not been playing. I don't know what the club will decide. If this is my time to leave I will leave, if I have to stay I will be happy as well, so only time will tell because my contract is expiring at the end of this month [June] and the club has been silent.

"Maybe the club want to see what happens with the Covid-19 situation. I will accept any decision they take. At the end of the day it's my agency [Spring MG] that will see what's good for me."

Makgaka, who has seen his game-time limited this season as the club changed coaches, added: "It's not the arrival of coach (Dylan) Kerr [that makes him struggle to play regularly]. Even before coach (Wedson) Nyirenda left I was starting to miss a lot of games.

"Nobody is telling me why I am not playing. But I have heard rumours that I am lazy, I cannot say where I got that from."
