Masalesa explains decision to join Stars

New Platinum Stars midfielder Lehlogonolo Masalesa has explained that he decided to join the club, after receiving a good offer and because of his Bafana Bafana aspirations.

After leaving Orlando Pirates to join Greek top-flight side Larissa, the player spent the last six months at the club and helped them avoid relegation.

However, he reportedly could not agree terms on a new deal and thus decided to return to South Africa to sign for Dinaledi. The 25-year-old penned a three-year deal with the Peter Butler-coached outfit.

Masalesa told the Sowetan, “I got a good offer from Stars that I couldn’t refuse and I think it’s a good move for me. I have been welcomed well by the club and they did their utmost to convince me to come here.

“So I’m here and I’m looking forward to the future. I know that they expect a lot from me as a club and my contract speaks for itself. I would really like to hit the ground running.”

“I will love to be a part of the Bafana team going forward, especially under a coach like Stuart. I’ve never doubted my ability and even when I went abroad, I didn’t struggle to make an impact within a short space of time.”
