Sangweni tight-lipped amid Pirates talk


Sangweni was one of the Chilli Boys’ best performers last season as they finished in the top eight for the first time in the club’s history.

While there has been rumours that he is not happy at Chippa United - which forced him to miss the club’s last League against Kaizer Chiefs - Sangweni, who is younger brother of recently-retired Bucs defender Siyabonga, says he is not aware that he has been linked to the Soweto giants.

“I don’t know anything,” Sangweni tells

“I’m serious, I don’t know anything, and I can’t say anything either … I have no comment. As I’m speaking to you I’m at home and I don’t know anything.

“But having said that, the interest excites me … that means the work I do on field is there for everybody to see.”

Sangweni adds that he’s not sure though if he will be a Chippa United player next season, before clarifying his early return home. 

"Everything is fine in Port Elizabeth, but I can’t lie - I can’t promise that I will be there next season,” he said. “That is why I’m maintaining I don’t know what will happen. All I know is that I’m part of Chippa United as I speak, and I don’t know anything as of now.

“Also, the reason why I returned home early was because there was something urgent that needed me at home. But everything is okay now.”
