Sebola Discusses Pirates’ New Signings

Orlando Pirates Legend Talks About Signings

By Kyle Smith - Jul 23, 2017 06:31 PM @KyleLaduma

Former Orlando Pirates striker Andries Sebola has discussed the Buccaneers’ latest acquisitions and revealed his thoughts on the latest transfers.

Official: Orlando Pirates Launch 2017/18 Home Jersey

Pirates have secured the signatures of Thamsanqa Sangweni, Wayne Sandilands and Christian Obiozor so far in the 2017 July/August transfer window, but it is the return of their centre back, Justice Chabalala, who was on loan at Chippa United, that excited the former AmaZulu frontman.

“They’ve made some very good signings and I’m happy for Justice Chabalala to come back from Chippa,” he said. “That was a big mistake that they made last season when they loaned that boy to Chippa. So, for him to come back, is a bonus for Pirates. That was the weakness for Pirates, to have that link in the defence.”

Sebola went on to discuss the three new arrivals, saying how each would benefit the team in their respective departments.

“(Wayne) Sandilands is also a good signing. A goalkeeper of his age has a lot to offer, experience wise and also with playing in Africa and locally. It will help Pirates at the back. My concern, though, is that they are signing more players, but not taking any players out. Players like Ayanda Gcaba and (Patrick) Phungwayo need to make space for the players who’ve just come in, especially if you consider that Marc van Heerden didn’t get much chance to play,” he continued.

“I’m happy with the strikers because we need another foreigner to be a striker and they it was only the late Dennis Lota who has made such a big difference for Pirates. For now, we just need to hope that this Nigerian striker (Christian Obiozor) can deliver for Pirates.

Transfer Shopping List: Nine Players Linked To Pirates

“With (Thamsanqa) Sangweni, it is a good acquisition and the boy has made his long overdue move to Pirates after his brother (Siyabonga) left due to injury. He will be a good signing for Pirates in the middle of the park where Pirates were conceding goals from and which affected the defenders.”
