Third club lucky for ex-Pirates star?


Former Orlando Pirates centre-back Tshepo Gumede has arrived at Black Leopards to begin another assessment.

The 29-year-old is a free agent after parting ways with AmaZulu in 2019 and has already tried his luck at Swallows FC and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila this off-season.

Gumede has now resurfaced at Leopards in the hope of securing a contract with the Venda-based club.

It has since emerged that Lidoda Duvha are preparing to add him to their 2020/21 DStv Premiership squad as a source at Leopards confirms the player's presence at the club.

"We played a friendly against a local team and Gumede started, he arrived on Friday. It was his first day with the team," an insider tells

"He hasn't signed yet. He is still being assessed. The club is expecting another two players to join him. They are actually looking for a centre-back."
