Pretoria Callies, who play in the GladAfrica Championship, appear to be serious about being promoted to the top division, having previously signed two former Kaizer Chiefs players on a free transfer.
Itumeleng Shopane and Sizwe Thwala, both strikers, were recently dismissed by the Chiefs after realizing that new head coach Stuart Baxter had no plans for them.
The two players spent last season on loan with the Kansas City Chiefs, where they hoped to improve and earn a starting spot. However, their loan assignments did not proceed as planned, and they were let go from their contracts.
Callies' public relations officer, Doctor Maphalle, confirmed that the players had joined the team, which is playing in its first season in South Africa's second division.
"They've both recently joined our team and are now considered members. I'm not sure how long their contracts will last, but one thing is certain: they'll be Callies players for the foreseeable future."
Interestingly, these aren't the only former Kaizer Chiefs players to join the club; Edward Manqele and Collins Mbesuma, both of whom formerly played for the club, have also joined.
