Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele reveals they have not signed Thabo Nthethe yet


Mphahlele says the former Bloemfontein Celtic and Mamelodi Sundowns man, who was released by Chippa United earlier this month, went for a medical today and he’ll get the report on Tuesday, before making a decision to bring the player on board.

Bakgaga confirmed Nthethe’s signing on social media on Friday, saying: “Baroka Football Club have completed the signing of experienced defender Thabo Nthethe (34) on a six-month deal with a one-year option.”

Baroka are looking to bolster their defence in the second half of the season as the battle to stay in the Absa Premiership intensifies. Nthethe brings a lot of experience, but questions over his pace have sometimes been raised.

“He went for a medical today and I will get his report tomorrow,” Mphahlele tells “I can confirm with you tomorrow. Don’t listen to anyone else, listen to me. I will confirm tomorrow.”
