Beranger signs for Pirates broke the news on July 11 when we spotted him playing in a friendly against University of Pretoria, and Bucs coach Roger de Sa confirmed to us last night at Orlando Stadium that the 20-year-old centre-back has put pen to paper.

“He signed for us,” De Sa confirms. “He’s done the job, but he battles with the language obviously. I must say I had doubts at first, but he’s got better and better every day.”
