Baroka FC captain Mduduzi Mdantsane responds to reports linking him to Kaizer Chiefs


Baroka FC midfielder Mduduzi Mdansane has not ruled out the possibility of making a return to Kaizer Chiefs.

Mdansane inspired Bakgaga to their first major title in top flight football last season, as they beat Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout final. Mdantsane was one of the Telkom Knockout Player of the Tournament nominees, an award which was given to his teammate Elvis Chipezeze.

Recently Mdantsane, who has played for Amakhosi’s during the development phase of his career, was linked with a move to Amakhosi

Speaking to media on Wednesday, the midfielder made it clear that he doesn't have any power in terms of moving back to Naturena. Only Baroka FC would decide if they want to let him go, should an offer be made.

"[Laughs] I'm hearing talks about Chiefs, I don't know if it's true or not, I’m waiting for my agent to confirm, because no one has spoken to me personally. So I don't know, my focus is to play football. If that's true then Baroka will be the one deciding because I'm still contracted with them and we all have to respect that,” he said.

"Yeah I grew up at Naturena, but sometimes you have to face challenges until you reach your dream. If it's meant to be I will return, but as I said it’s up to the club I represent now and we have to respect that.” 

The captain says he was not disappointed to miss out on the Telkom Knockout Player of the Tournament award.

"For me to be nominated meant I was good enough, that's a huge achievement. I believe our goalkeeper Chipezeze really deserved the award. He saved the club and for me the team comes first before anything."
