Bucs to part ways with fringe players

Orlando Pirates are set to let go of some of their players ahead of the 2019/20 PSL campaign.

The Buccaneers finished second in the Absa Premiership behind Mamelodi Sundowns and did not get their hands on any of the knockout competitions, so they will be looking to bolster their side and also let go of players who are not in the technical team’s plans going forward.

KickOff.com understands that players such as Linda Mntambo, Diamond Thopola, Justice Chabalala, Abel Mabaso, Thabo Matlaba, Ntsikelelo Nyauza, Mpho Makola and Meshack Maphangule look set to be on their way out of the club in search of regular game time. Gladwin Shitolo is set to return from a loan spell from Chippa United, but it’s unclear if he is the plans of the technical team.

Mntambo, Mabaso and Maphangule, who were all signed before the start of the past season, will be making their way to Chippa.

Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic, meanwhile, hinted that they will be in the market for new players. Fortune Makaringe and Tebogo Tlolane are deals that are already set to have been completed and they will be registered with the club when the transfer window opens in July.
