Vieira Eyes Next Move After Bafana Disappointment

What's Happening With Lehlogonolo Masalesa After Bafana Withdrawl?

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 14, 2017 10:21 AM
Lehlogonolo Masalesa will not be playing in this weekend’s Chan qualifier against Botswana, but he is now looking towards the next chapter in his career.
 
 
Masalesa was due to captain Stuart Baxter’s side for the two games against the Zebras as South Africa look to take a step close to the Chan finals, however he was deemed ineligible due to the fact that he’s not registered to a South African club.
 
‘Vieira’ recently left Greek side, AE Larissa, in Greece after a successful spell there - since January - and it was originally thought that, as a free agent, he could play in the Chan games. Baxter has since explained that he had to be withdrawn, replacing him with Mamelodi Sundowns’ Sibusiso Khumalo.
 
The Siya crew spoke to Siyavuma Sports Group’s Keegan Wasserfall, who said that they’re currently weighing up the player’s options, stating the importance of deciding what is best for the 25-year-old's next move.
 
Wasserfall said, “It’s very unfortunate that Lehlogonolo couldn’t play in the competition. He went to Greece on a short-term deal in January and played most of the games, doing very well. He decided not to stay on in Greece, and we’re currently assessing options for him going forward.
 
“There is interest internationally and big interest locally from a number of clubs. Vieira’s focus in his next move is that it has to be right from a playing and financial point of view. It’s also a possible World Cup year for South Africa, and he has big ambitions to be part of the full Bafana squad. So we all feel that the choice of where he goes next is very important with one eye on the national team.” 
 
Masalesa helped Larissa avoid relegation from the Greek top-flight during his time there, playing a major role as they beat the drop.
