Chiukepo Msowoya’s South Africa-based scout, Martin Sekati, Sunday insisted that the Nyasa Big Bullets striker has a chance of signing for Bloemfontein Celtic, despite that the South Africa Absa Premier Soccer League side has recruited two strikers.
“I can only comment more after Wednesday. I have even told Chiukepo to stay away from the media. I am here looking for a job for him; not for a short-term, but long-term. I have taken all communication lines from him so that the guy can concentrate on his training at Celtic,” Sekati said in an interview from Johannesburg.
Celtic announced on Friday that Burundian, Fiston Abdoul and South African, Julius Likontsane were the club’s new employees to replace Malawian Frank ‘Gabadinho’ Mhango, who was fired recently after signing a pre-contract with Bidvest Wits.
The new recruits seemed to dash the hopes of 2015 TNM Super League Player-of-the Season, Msowoya, but Sekati insisted otherwise.
“It is true that Celtic have signed two strikers, but they are on loan for just two months as the players are still contracted to Mamelodi Sundowns. These guys have work permits. Celtic are busy looking for a permanent striker they can keep for three years,” Sekati noted.
However, SuperSport website reported that Abdul joins Celtic on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns, while Linkontsane, who is an Under-23 international, signed permanently on a three-year deal
