Orlando Pirates midfielder Mlungisi ‘Professor’ Gumbi has changed his surname to Mdluli.
This was revealed in the list of Pirates players registered with PSL this season. Another player who changed his surname in the past is former Bucs goalkeeper Thabang Stemmer who was previously known as Thabang Radebe. Orlando Pirates communication manager Mickey Modisane tells KickOff.com that despite ‘Professor’s’ change of surname, his jersey number 6 will remain with the surname Gumbi this season. “He will remain with the surname Gumbi on his Pirates jersey because the surname was changed after the registration was done. He will probably have his new surname on his shirt next season.” Meanwhile striker Irvin Mhlambi’s future with Pirates remains uncertain after the club failed to register him. According to the list of players that have been registered by their respective club that was sent to KickOff.com by the PSL, both Mhlambi and Kelebogile Mabe are not on the Bucs list of registered players.
