Former Baroka FC player Tshepo 'Skhwama' Matete says he was shocked by the Township Rollers' decision to terminate his contract.

Rollers terminated the skillful player’s contract after playing for one season in the Botswana’s top-flight league.

Matete joined the Botswana outfit after his contract with Baroka FC was terminated.

“Everything was good that side. I was enjoying my football again but then [my] contract [went] boom. The passing of my father in December took a toll on my performance too.”

“I haven’t completed any of my professional contracts. With Baroka it was terminated, and the same thing is happening again. But then maybe it is God’s timing, I cannot question it.

“Everything happens through God’s grace in football, not because I’m a bad player or I don’t behave, but because he decides,” he stated.

“My journey has been tough, but I will continue working hard.

“At the moment there are some negotiations with a club from outside the country. But if a local club comes up with an offer I will consider it.”
