Bucs Striker Staying On For Now

Orlando Pirates Keeping Striker In The Squad

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 20, 2017 05:15 PM

Orlando Pirates striker, Thabiso Kutumela, is staying on with the team for now as the club has not officially communicated anything about him leaving.

As reported in the latest Soccer Laduma that came out on Wednesday, issue number 1032, Bucs are keeping the former NFD top goalscorer in their setup for now, despite him having struggled for game time at the club. 

Kutumela has struggled for game time at Bucs since his arrival at the club from Baroka FC prior to the start of the 2016/17 season. The 24-year-old made only three starts for Bucs in their disappointing Absa Premiership campaign of last season.

While Pirates have recently strengthened the team’s striking department with the signing of Nigerian striker Christian Obiozor, and still having the likes of Tendai Ndoro and Thamsanqa Gabuza within the squad, the indication is that there is no intention of loaning Kutumela as yet, as the squad for the 2017/18 season is being finalised.   

“Thabiso Kutumela is staying with Pirates,” said a source within Bucs’ setup.

Kutumela was delayed by a knee injury he picked up towards the end of last season on his progress at Bucs.

Orlando Pirates is run by stupids like the ANC is run by Zuma an idiot. They are keeping old useless players like Gabuza instead of a youngster like Kutumela. The problem with OP is that it buys promising young stars and instead of off loading the old crocks they keep them and a new coach gets some pressure from within the club to play them. People like Palacios are involved because the new coach played the same loosing scheme Palacios was using till the end of the season ,guess what the team was out of the top 8 for the first time.What puzzles me is that the same back line which leaked 16 goals in three matches is still there.Am I lying when I say Pirates is led by idiots?

I'm a khosi fan but I'm pleading with pirates to give my boy a fair chance. It hurts so much to see him always on the bench knowing that he's a good player, a pure talent. He's a good player, I know him from the young age, he's good.

I don't understand why players will stay with clubs that does not give them playtime. My thinking is if you can't make first 11 then you don't fit in with the team' style of play.
