Why Pirates released Mabokgwane

Jackson Mabokgwane's business manager has revealed why the goalkeeper was released by Orlando Pirates.

The Buccaneers announced on Wednesday that they have parted ways with the former Bafana Bafana goalminder.

The 31-year-old arrived at Pirates from Mpumalanga Black Aces in 2016 on a three-year deal that expires at the end of this month.

He was one of the four goalkeepers at the club including the likes of Wayne Sandilands, Brilliant Khuzwayo and Siyabonga Mpontshane.

Mahlakgane also revealed that at the moment there is no concrete offer for his client.

"There's nothing yet but at the moment as you may be aware it's official that he has left Pirates," Jazzman Mahlakgane tells KickOff.com.

"I'm just on the talking terms with people. There's no straight-cut out in terms of a club but I'm talking to clubs. I can't mention them because it will jeopardise this boy's opportunity.

"What happened at Pirates is that his contract ended. So with his contract finished the team's explanation was that amongst the goalkeepers they have, he is the one whose contract has expired. So obviously then they opted not to renew. So we'll have to look for a new club."
