Lidoda Duvha general manager Chief Thidiela has now confirmed that ‘Dax’ will be part of the squad that will go into the Gauteng bio-bubble this weekend, ahead of the PSL resumption next week.

“Ja, we are taking everyone. We even have ten players that were promoted from MDC, and we are also taking them with us,” Thidiela told KickOff.com.

“There is a [letter from FIFA], they sent it to the PSL and SAFA, and we have a copy. As our player, we need to go and support him throughout.

“We are just preparing, we are still pushing. I think we will be in Gauteng five days before the bubble. There’s a mini-bubble before you go to the bubble,” he adds.

Leopards are currently anchoring the PSL base with 20 points from 24 matches, and have a tough assignment against Maritzburg United on Thursday, August 16.
