Seema rejoined Chippa United with four games to go before the end of the season but he’s now unemployed as Mpengesi has other plans.

The former Orlando Pirates and Lesotho skipper said he had discussions with Mpengesi but nothing came out of them as he was told he will no longer be needed.

“Hopefully the next team can provide an opportunity for a whole season and I can push myself again, but definitely not continuing with Chippa, spoke to the Chairman and he indicated he won’t be continuing with me for next season.”
