Its “Khumbul’ ekhaya” for former Orlando Pirates player after European club threw him over the bridge

Former Orlando Pirates youth player Yanga Baliso is looking to make a return home after parting ways with AC Oulu in Finland.

The 26-year-old midfielder has been in Finland since leaving Bucs in 2019 and has played for both Pargas IF and IFK Mariehamn before joining Oulu in January last year.

Baliso’s time in Finland has come to an end as his contract with Oulu has expired.

He has returned to Cape Town and is now considering his options for a possible return to the South African Premier Soccer League (PSL).

Sources have confirmed that Baliso has been training with his former club Cape Town Spurs as he looks to secure his next deal.

Speaking about his desire to return home, Baliso said, “I have enjoyed my time in Finland, but I feel like it’s time to come back home and play in the PSL. I have learned a lot during my time abroad, and I believe I can bring that experience to a South African club. I am excited about the possibility of playing in front of South African fans again.”

Baliso’s former coach at Orlando Pirates, who is now coaching in the PSL, praised the midfielder’s skill and work ethic.

“Yanga was always a talented player with a great attitude. I have no doubt that he can make a significant impact in the PSL if given the opportunity. He has matured both on and off the field during his time in Europe, and I believe he is ready to excel in South African football.”

As Baliso continues to weigh his options, fans are eagerly awaiting his return to the PSL and are hopeful that he will secure a deal with a top club in the league.
