MADUBANYA FACES UN­CLEAR FU­TURE AT BAROKA?

Soccer Laduma - - Siyag Bhoza -

Ex­pe­ri­enced mid­fielder Let­ladi Madubanya is fac­ing an un­clear fu­ture with Baroka FC, ac­cord­ing to sources close to the Lim­popo-based out­fit.

Baroka made his­tory on the week­end by reach­ing their first-ever fi­nal in the PSL, af­ter they beat Bid­vest Wits 1-0 in their Telkom Knock­out semi-fi­nal match at Pe­ter Mok­aba Sta­dium on Sun­day.

While Madubanya did come on as sub­sti­tute late in the match, it was his first ap­pear­ance in Wed­son Nyirenda’s team af­ter a long ab­sence. The cen­tral mid­fielder was a no­table ab­sen­tee from Baroka’s line-ups when they de­feated Golden Ar­rows in the round of 16, as well as against Mamelodi Sun­downs in the quar­ter­fi­nals.

Prior to com­ing on against Wits, Madubanya had last played for Baroka in their Absa Premier­ship match against Or­lando Pi­rates in Sep­tem­ber. Hav­ing ini­tially cap­tained the side and play­ing reg­u­larly, the 34-year-old has been lim­ited to watch­ing from the bench or ex­cluded from match day squads al­to­gether in re­cent matches.

An in­di­ca­tion from sources close to Bak­gaga is that the player could be af­fected by the squad changes ex­pected to take place at the end of the sea­son. Madubanya has been with Baroka since March of 2017, and prior to his ar­rival at Bak­gaga, the ex­pe­ri­enced player had turned out for the likes of Plat­inum Stars, Bloem­fontein Celtic, Su­perS­port United, Bid­vest Wits and AmaZulu.
