'I'm coming back to win my Bucs place'


Gladwin Shitolo is in form and even earned a Bafana Bafana call-up but needs a chance to impress at Orlando Pirates, and he has vowed to do just that.

Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer has some tough decisions ahead of him as players who are currently out on loan have done well this season, the likes of Shitolo and Tebogo Tlolane.

Shitolo has been unlucky at Pirates and been sent on a few loan moves already, but promises to come back next season and show the new coach what he's worth.

The 30-year-old has been instrumental for Golden Arrows, even earning a national team call-up, and has expressed his desire to return to the Buccaneers to fight for his place next season.

"I'm definitely going to go back and fight for my place at Pirates, my brother. I'm looking forward to fighting for my position there," Shitolo tells KickOff.com.

Zinnbauer has not shown any interest in Pirates' players who are out on loan but Shitolo still hopes to return at his parent club and impress the German tactician.

"Even though there's a new coach in charge we will see because he has his own plans and players, so I'm going to go there as a player, play football and make sure I compete," he promises.

Shitolo did not want to talk about the possibility of staying at Arrows permanently.

"I wouldn't talk about staying at Golden Arrows permanently because I'm still contacted to Pirates," he concludes.
