Masango's future still remains uncertain with Matsatsantsa's new coach yet to make a decision on whether or not he wants to keep him at the club

Mandla Masango’s loan deal with SuperSport United is set to expire at the end of the month with no clear indication of where the winger’s future lies.

Following a torrid time in Denmark, Masango made a welcome return to the PSL and reunited with his former coach Stuart Baxter in Tshwane.

However, despite the club previously admitting that they were keen to make the 27-year-old’s move permanent, there has been no progress made according to SuperSport chairman Khulu Sibiya.    

“Mandla Masango’s case is not resolved as yet,” Sibiya told The Star.

“He joined us in the middle of the season on a six-month loan deal and according to the contract, he’s still a Randers player. They are the ones who have the power on whether to sell him or not, not us. He has only a few days left with us until his future is decided,” he said. 

Sibiya has also explained that the decision whether or not to buy Masango will be up to the incoming coach Eric Tinkler.

“But then again, you have this issue of the new coach coming in. Baxter just left us for Bafana following our (4-1) victory over Orlando Pirates in Durban (this past weekend), and Tinkler is still yet to make changes in his squad,” Sibiya added.

"He still has to present to me his overall analysis of the squad and decide on which players he would like to keep, buy or release leading up to the new season,” Sibiya concluded.
