Freese tips Maarman for Pirates success


Coach Allan Freese believes that midfielder Ronaldo Maarman has the attributes to succeed at Orlando Pirates if given a chance next season.

Maarman spent the past season on loan to Cape Town All Stars where he also helped them qualify for the PSL promotion play-offs.

The 22-year-old midfielder is now set to re-join Pirates for their pre-season training before the end of this month as he looked forward to playing in PSL next season.

Bucs are also set to welcome midfielder, Monnapule Saleng for pre-season training after spending one season on loan to Swallows FC.

Freese says Maarman is now ready for the big stage in his soccer career but depending on how he applies himself in the PSL.

"He is a good boy with good behaviour both on and off the field. He did well for us," Freese tells KickOff.

"He is a hard-working player. I hope he will do well. I think it will all depend on how he applies himself, but I believe he will do well at Pirates," he added.

Meanwhile, Orlando Pirates are set to part ways with Zambian midfielder, Austin Muwowo after spending last season on loan with Swallows FC where he struggled with game time.
