Agent talks Makgaka's Pirates future


The agent of out-of-favour Orlando Pirates attacking midfielder Collins Makgaka has commented on his client's lack of game time this season.

The Marble Hall-born star arrived at Pirates from Baroka FC in September last year, but up to date has only managed five appearances across all competitions.

While the 24-year-old can play in more than one position, he has not managed to impress German mentor Jozef Zinnbauer enough to give him a permanent role in his team.

Makgaka's agent Kieran Brown says his client is not worried about his situation at the Soweto giants as he understands he will need to fight for his place in the team.

"Collins is one hundred percent committed to the club and will continue to fight for his place in the squad at Orlando Pirates," Brown tells

"It's been a tough season for him, he is a fighter and we are very positive about the future."

Makgaka has to compete with the likes of Siphesihle Ndlovu, Fortune Makaringe, Nkanyiso Zungu and Linda Mntambo for a starting berth in Zinnbauer's starting line-up.
