Thandani Ntshumayelo could make Baroka FC debut against Kaizer Chiefs


The 29-year-old former Orlando Pirates star will be making his return to the field for the first time since he successfully appealed a four-year ban for the use of cocaine.

"We are still assessing the team and Thandani is one of the options for this game," Nyirenda tells

The Zambian coach says the reason he decided to sign the midfielder is because he believes he deserves a second chance.

"I gave the young man the second chance of life. Every person deserves a second chance. We all make mistakes. Some things we find ourselves in are not even our fault.

"I have also seen great talent in him. He is also very disciplined and respectful, hardworking. With time he will surprise the world with his comeback."

The Absa Premiership clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Baroka at FNB Stadium on Saturday will kick off at 18h00.
