Veteran midfielder Lebohang 'Cheeseboy' Mokoena has been left baffled by not being given an explanation by Swallows FC for not renewing his contract.

The one-time captain of the side led the side to promotion to the DStv Premiership in the 2019/2020 season and has revealed that he was not even spoken to regarding the decision not to extend his contract.

The 36-year-old is not hanging up his boots just yet, however, and is still pondering the next move in his career.

"I'm not with Swallows anymore based on what I was told by the club which was that I shouldn't report for training anymore," Mokoena tells KickOff.

"I wasn't given any further explanations, so I don't know why.

"On the other end, I also don't know yet what will happen with me going forward because I'm still digesting this matter which caught me a bit offside.

"However, this is football so I will just have to find a way to juggle all of this if it came unexpectedly.

"I'm just giving myself time to give it all a proper thought.

"I don't know what is going to happen going forward because I don't have answers for all of that yet.

"For now, I'm at home because I don't have a team."
