Bucs scupper Ndulula's Israel dream

Bongani Ndulula's dream of playing in Europe has been shattered by Orlando Pirates

Posted: 7 January 2013 Time: 1:24 pm

Bongani Ndulula's dream of playing in Europe has been shattered after Orlando Pirates failed to give him permission to attend trials at Bnei Sakhnin.

The former Under-23 international was tipped to head to Israel this week, but according to his agent, Tim Sukazi of Quality Talent Sports, this is for the second time in the space of 12 months that Ndulula had had an opportunity in Europe denied.

In January last year Westerlo wanted him on loan with an option to buy, but Pirates did not give him permission to go to Belgium.

"We haven't received permission from Pirates to let ‘Drogba' go to Israel," Sukazi tells KickOff.com. "Unfortunately we were given a time limit at which we had to obtain permission from Pirates and we haven't succeeded.

"The Israeli club has its own program and had scheduled time this week to have a look at the boy. To this end, they postponed his flight ticket on two occasions to allow us more time to obtain authorisation from Pirates."

When pressed for reasons for Pirates' failure to give permission, Sukazi says: "From our side, we've done everything under all given circumstances to get the boy to Europe, but seemingly it was not meant to be."

He adds: "Drogba is contracted to Pirates until June 2013. If anything has to happen on his future prior to the expiry of his contract, Pirates has to authorise that move, failing which he will remain their player up to the end of his contract.

"From our side, we would like to see him getting game-time elsewhere because it is not in his best interests to watch football from the stands as is currently happening."

In response, Bucs spokesperson Mickey Modisane says his club's offices in Johannesburg will only re-open tomorrow.

"I don't know who they might have spoken to, but our offices only re-open tomorrow. That's the best time to discuss the issue of players in the team."

This Sukazi guy is mad... with who and how did he discuss this at Pirates? You should have spoken to the Israeli club and told them Pirates only opens today, thats the only time you can finalize everything.

We're Champions, we don't allow our players to go for trials in some mediocre country and we're doing what's in the best interest for Ndulula. He's gonna come back like Fanteni if he goes there

You speaking like an unemployed person that has never been employed in his life, or usebenzela amakula.... What would you do if some of your clients was to call you on your Christmas break to discuss business? You would obviously tell them you on leave and will be back on whatever date... Read the above very carefully and don't show as your side of stupidity!!!!

Awoh! Shame I feel for him wherever he is. But he refused to go to Broken Arrows so I think he is doomed because his deal would have been done in 1.5minutes action bed.

It is very bad to wait for other teams that we dont support to do this and we start attacking them.Let us not do that maybe the relevant team(pirates)have prepared something up for this young guy we do'nt know.Let's behave like south african unless there are naturalised south african amongst us who does'nt want to go back to their respective countries living on crime in Mzansi.Viva unity viva. Viva Mzansi viva.Viva Mandela Viva.People are laughing at us.It becomes a shame.
