Baroka’s bid to bring in the Zambian duo of Justin Shonga and Brian Mwila has failed with the latter now having signed for Platinum Stars.
Baroka had been keen on the duo who they had also offered contracts yet the club failed in their attempts to lure the two to Limpopo.
“Brian was our main target, with Justin someone we wanted so that they settle in well,” says club CEO Morgan Mammila.
“We couldn’t take Justin without Brian. It now seems Brian has chosen to go elsewhere which is still okay with us because we will work with what we have in the team.”
Both Shonga and Mwila excelled at the COSAFA Castle Cup played in the North West province recently.
KickOff.com has established that Mwila was offered a better deal at Dikwena which motivated his decision to choose the North West province instead of Limpopo.
Baroka already have five foreigners on their books in Lewis Macha (Zambia), Abdi Banda (Tanzania), Talent Chawapiwa (Zimbabwe), Mpho Kgaswane (Botswana) and Robin Ngalande (Malawi).
