Orlando Pirates administrative manager Floyd Mbele is unaware of media reports stating that Lyle Foster underwent trials at AS Monaco.

On Thursday, reports coming of South Africa stated that the Bucs striker went for a two-week assessment at the French Ligue 1 giants.

However, Bucs club official Mbele insisted that he was not aware of the news when speaking to Goal South Africa.

“I don’t know what you are talking about. Honestly, I’m not aware that he went to Monaco for an assessment,” Mbele told Goal.

“It’s the first time I’m hearing this. I’m not aware of any assessment the player went through abroad.”

Foster, who is a South African Under-20 international, was promoted to the Bucs first team this season.

He has since made four appearances in the Absa Premiership for the Buccaneers.

Ugandan duo in Mohammed Shaban and Rashid Toha have reportedly left their country to attend trials at SuperSport United in South Africa.

The Onduparaka Football Club players jetted out of the country on Sunday morning for trials with the South African Premier Soccer League side.

Reports in Uganda reveal that the move follows the successful acquisition of their visas and will train under the watchful eye of coach Eric Tinkler.

“Yes. They have left for South Africa. We pray for the very best during their stay in the country,” Onduparaka CEO, Anthony Afeti said to Kawowo Sports.

TOGO AND BENIN PLAY TO STALEMATE

They were invited by SuperSport United for a two week trial stint with fully paid for accommodation and air tickets.

It is also reported that SuperSport’s head of operations, Dominic Busschau has signed the letter of invitation for the two youngsters.

Should the two players excel and be recruited, they will follow in the foot marks of Uganda Cranes centre forward Brian Umony.

Umony featured for the Tshwane giants between 2009 and 2010 after a successful season with Kampala Capital City Authority.
