Stars release Mtsweni, Okumu and Sekotlong

Free State Stars have confirmed the official departures of three first-team players ahead of the new Absa Premiership season.

Ea Lla Koto is in the process of building a new squad under head coach Sammy Troughton with the target of achieving a memorable campaign without the fear of relegation.

And now General Manager Rantsi Mokoena has confirmed the rumours circulating in the media over the past week.

Three players have moved on and are no longer part of the long-term plans at the Bethlehem-based outfit.

“I can confirm that we have released another three players namely defenders Simphiwe Mtsweni, Kenyan Joseph Okomu and utility forward Thokozane Sekotlong.

“The club wish the players the very best of luck in their future endeavours.”
