Monare reveals his Pirates offering


Orlando Pirates midfielder Thabang Monare has made his mission with the Buccaneers clear as he gives a sense of what he brings to the club.

Monare joined Pirates on a free transfer after being handed his clearance by Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, who purchased the status and assets of Bidvest Wits earlier this year.

The 31-year-old, who is valued at R13.3-million according to, is among eight new arrivals at Rand Stadium and joins several of his former Wits teammates.

Having made his debut in the team's 3-0 MTN8 semi-final first-leg rout of Kaizer Chiefs, he has opened up on what he offers the Soweto giants.

"I've never seen myself as the kind of person that can win individual accolades, I focus more on what the team can do," Monare told Pirates TV.

"Anything and everything happens to fall into place once you focus on the collective and the collective effort. Right now my ambition as an individual, I would say, is to put whatever I can into the team so that the team can get silverware."

Pirates have endured a six-season trophy drought since they last lifted the Nedbank Cup back in 2014, but have a golden opportunity to bring joy back to their supporters in the MTN8 final against Bloemfontein Celtic, which is scheduled for 12 December.
