Mphela not moving to Celtic

Mphela not moving to Celtic

Bad news for South African football is the announcement by Scottish giants Glasgow Celtic that they will not be signing talented Bafana Bafana striker Katlego Mphela, after the player spent 5-days on trial in Glasgow recently.

Only last Wednesday,Mphela was unfortunate not to score against Wolves in a friendly match in which he played for 45 minutes.

Apparently Neil Lennon has decided against signing the Mamelodi Sundowns striker, nicknamed "Killer" by his adoring fans in South Africa

"We can confirm that Celtic will not be signing Katlego Mphela," club spokesman Iain Jamieson announced on the club's website on Friday.

By hindsight, Celtic may realise that they were a bit disrespectful to Mphela and the other players who were on trial with the club last week by persisiting in their reported pursuit of Knowledge Musona, who was already on his way to Hoffenheim.

The collapse of the propsed move will be a blow to Mphela who has been dying to return to Europe after unsuccesful stay in France with Strasbourg.

Mphela even went into hiding, into self-imposed exile as he protested his club's apparent blocking of several potential moves to some European clubs. The jury is still out on whether Sundowns indeed blocked genuine potential moves for the vocal striker.
