Orlando Pirates move on from Mamelodi Sundowns star as they..

Pirates are in Spain for the second pre-season in a row, after enjoying a fruitful spell last time around.


With seven players having been released so far this window, this will be a different looking Pirates side. The first two to make way were Souiabou Marou as well as Fortune Makaringe. They were then followed by Siyabonga Mpontshane, Richard Ofori, Kermit Erasmus and Thabang Monare. The latest player leave, however, was fan favourite Vincent Pule.



In the list, two goalkeepers feature and naturally that means they will have to sign at least one goalkeeper. Last season, the hot topic was Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse. According to sources, that ship has now firmly sailed as Pirates look elsewhere.

There is no move to Orlando Pirates that is being considered for Mamelodi Sundowns keeper Reyaad Pieterse in this winter transfer window, Siya sources have indicated.” Wrote Soccer-Laduma.


The source then goes on to detail how Pirates have moved on from Pieterse.


“Despite the two guys (Mpontshane and Ofori) leaving, Pirates still have two good goalkeepers in the guys that have been playing, Sipho Chaine and (Melusi) Buthelezi. Also, there are good youngsters that have been coming through the ranks, including the new signings (Bayanda Thabethe and Ethan Visagie), and therefore there is no pressure about that department,” said the source.
