Baroka FC winger Talent Chawapiwa says he nearly joined Kaizer Chiefs in the pre-season, but the deal fell through on the 11th hour for unknown reasons.
The 26-year-old winger was heavily linked with a move to the Soweto Giants following impressive performances in his debut season at the Limpopo side.
“It was true because my agent spoke to the Chiefs guys, but I don’t know what happened in the end. [The deal] was almost closed,” Chawapiwa confirmed in an interview with Kick.com.
“[But] it’s all about remaining disciplined as a person, because if you allow that to get into your head then your performance will go down. It’s about staying calm and hoping for the best in the future.”
Chawapiwa is in the second year of his three-year contract with Baroka FC.
