Thobejane turned down Baroka

Former Baroka FC head coach Kgoloko Thobejane says he turned down the chance to return to the Premier Soccer League strugglers last year.

Thobejane was fired from Baroka in 2018 and returned to club management in February 2020 with Mpumalanga ABC Motsepe League side Passion FC.

The experienced coach revealed he was called by Bakgaga chairman Khurishi Mphahlele in November but rejected the offer from the club.

Thobejane told FARPost: "It took two years for him (Khurishi Mphahlele) to call me (since my departure), do you know why? He asked me do you want the job? He was asking me, the same job.

"So, I told him I don’t need a job because I felt that the approach was wrong.

"Maybe if the request was that we should meet first and talk, it would have shown me that this man ona le Ubuntu (he cares)."

Thobejane added: "You know in my life as Kgoloko Thobejane I am not one person who thinks I will rely on one person to live my life. For me to live as a person it’s up to me, I don't owe any person and no one owes me in life, even he (Mphahlele) doesn't owe me."
