Chivaviro still can't believe Baroka released him

Former Baroka FC striker Ranga Chivaviro admits he is still in disbelief that he was released by the club this season.

The 27-year-old was sent out on loan to National First Division outfit TS Sporting at the start of the 2019/20 campaign, but seemed to get a second chance to impress Bakgakga when he was recalled in January.

However, it didn't quite work out the way Chivaviro would've liked as he was released shortly after the season went on hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I am shocked and hurt as I was not expecting this. I still cannot believe I am no longer a Baroka player," said Chivaviro to DailySun.

"When I was called to the office by the chairman, I was happy. I thought it was about something else.

"I did not expect to be told that my contract has been terminated with immediate effect. Now I have to pack my things and go try my luck somewhere else.

"It hurts as I was happy to be back at Baroka and playing in the top flight again. But that's life. I need to be strong and move on."

"I thought I was doing well and the coach Dylan Kerr was happy with my performances," Chivaviro added.

"Maybe I was wrong. I never had a chance to say goodbye to the guys. Now all I am looking forward to is to work hard at home and hopefully get a new club after the Covid-19 problem.

"I am still thankful to [chairman Khurishi] Mphahlele for giving me the opportunity to play in the PSL.

"I had a good time with the club and I wish them the best of luck. I learned a lot as a player while at Baroka."
