It appears that Sibusiso Vilakazi's search for a new club will not be a long one.
The 33-year-old former Bafana Bafana striker scored a stunning acrobatic goal in a training match with Sekhukhune United. The video was shared on Twitter by the team's coach Brandon Truter, with the clubless Vilakazi probably on trial.
Truter added that were Babina Noko to sign him, it would only be during the off-season, though pre-contracts are allowed during the closed transfer window. Vilakazi recently departed from TS Galaxy under a cloud, with rumours that he had fallen out with coach Sead Ramovic.
