Orlando Pirates have parted ways with Njabulo Ntusi and Boubacar Talatou

Posted: 14 August 2012 Time: 16:23

Orlando Pirates have confirmed that they have parted ways with Njabulo Ntusi and Boubacar Talatou by mutual consent.

Both players joined Bucs ahead of the 2011/12 season, but after failing to make an impact they were both put on transfer last month along with Dikgang Mabalane, Lizo Mjempu, Njabulo Manqana and Chiukepo Msowoya.

Ntusi signed for Pirates from University of Pretoria, while Talatou, who is a Niger international, was signed from Gabonese side As Mangasport.

Both players never started an official match for Bucs.

@ KC is National Defence Force,

A wise Pirate said today "for one player to succede, the other must suffer"

I really don't understand what we need to do to educate the KC fans. No 1ns career has been destroyed, they have been paid the remainder / potions of their salary (as per mutual concent)since Pirate decided to opt out of the contract. The same was done by your team where the likes of Khune's son, that nautorious, nameless dancer & mant others were released. Was KC destroying their careers?

It must be forcefully encoded in the dense skulls of KC supporters that underperformance is not tolerated at Pirates. You either perform or jump. Players must understand that soccer is work & a career. If you don't treat is as a career, you run the risk of loosing work. People who have succeded in life invest time & effort in their chosen fields. The strive to be on top, the same can not be said of SAn players.

If you sign for Pirates, you must know that you must perform because the bench is so well endowned. If you are mediocre, you get released or booed from the stands. The only team that comes close to this mentallity except for their chocking condition & drunken tactics is Downs. The small clubs like KC worship mediocrity & think that a team must be run like an NGO or an NPO.

Tiyatolo had no chance. He was recommended by Krol. Krol was going to use him. The problem here is not the player but the playing system. Palacios uses two defensive midfielders, two wings, two strikers and no number 10. Talatou is a number 10. This is the same problem that affected Chansa under Palacious. Same problem that still affects Mayambela. That is why Pirates players look to be too far away from each other these days. The 2nd striker will always be substituted because he has to play striker and combine wings and defensive midfielders and main striker. Too much for one player. You can think that a good player must adjust, but at professional level only specialists survive, you hardly find players who can adjust and still be at the same level as their specialist position

Allowing someone to join the team of his choice after 1 season failing to crack it in a team that won 3 out of 4 available cups cannot be destroying his career. Mayambela has played more games at Pirates than sibeko did at chips in the last 4 yrs or so

just listen to all pirates Hypocrites.......how do you add value when you are even given that chance? This team is in shables, their Administrator akaa player coach Mrs Belly " Caleb Moeletsi aka Mawande's husband" McFatty is the one who selects and discards players.

Where do you expect a player to perform and prove himself? at training?...a player need to be given a chance to proof himself ....please top writing baseless articles..you are wasting far too much space on this site with those long senseless essays..

@ The Phefeni Boy,

Every thing starts at training. If you do not take your job seriously at training, why should you be given a chance to prove yourself in the 1st team?

We also have a reserve league which players must take seriously. For example, Makhanya once performed well in the reserves to the extent that we noticed that. We called for his inclusion into the 1st team which Krol hated. As a stop-gap solution, Khoza released him to Swai before it could get worse. The likes of Mayambela have used the same hence they now & again get a chance to play.

Why sign them if you are not gona need them. Doesn't make economic sense. You have an employee on your payroll who doesn't do anything.

Khosiologyst, The Phefeni Boy: guys we know u are dull but now u have elevated to a higher level of dullness.

There are games played mid week before Psl games plus a training session, players have a chance to prove their worth and convince a coach.

If u have played soccer, u would then be in a position to know that at training, its all about competitiveness and fighting for your place

If you sign for Pirates, you must know that you must perform because the bench is so well endowned. Look at a player like Myeni, he is always on the urge because Sox is sniffing. Look at Daine Klate, always consistent. Andile Jali knows that if Okonko can get a chance, kuzofiwa.

At Chiefs players are guaranteed game time weather on or off form, they go to long injuries and come back to walk straight into the starting 11, thats a sign for lack of quality.

Oh what a sad case for Njabulo Manqana because of Sheet Street F.C aka Gorillas F.C Dr. Spepepe's deals.

Tkzen: we sign them when they are at their peak of form only to realize that the standards and competition are to high at Pirates.

Please expand on the usage of lack of economic sense - i just get annoyed when terms are not applied comprehensively.

waiting for Economic sense elaboration

You are disappointing....you mean to tell me that you buy players like Boubacar Talatou and Njabulo Manqana and only play them if they perform well at training?......A real game and a practice game are not the same.....What about fielding and unfit players like The Fat Man who gets tired within the first 20min into the game..and still does not get substituted...Do you think Benny has to prove himself at training before he is selected?.....you have to be out of your mind to say yes to that....

The Phefeni Boy ...A real game and a practice game are not the same..

what is the difference except formality ..................waiting for the answer.
