Bucs Star To Inherit Number 10 Jersey?

At Orlando Pirates, the number 10 jersey carries meaning and bares many connotations with regards to former players who have worn the iconic jersey for the Sea Robbers over the years.

Yes, legends like Jomo Sono and Steve Lekoelea both owned it while playing for the club, but with the number being retired quite some time ago, could the rise in stature of Thabo Rakhale force the club to hand him that very sacred jersey?

Fair enough, a few tricks here and there along with the odd impact substitute appearance may not be enough to earn himself that revered number but potentially, Rakhale could grow into that role of being the club's future talisman.

It could also boost his confidence in that respect, knowing that the club would show complete faith in him becoming the next big thing for Pirates.

There is just something about Rakhale which distinguishes himself from the rest of the players at the club. It’s as if he plays with an aura around him and this was the case with the players who wore the number 10 Pirates jersey, they were just that different.

Both Sono and Lekoelea know what it means to be the main man at Pirates and have come in full support of Rakhale, as they acknowledge his enigmatic style of play.

Having said that, do you think Rakhale has what it takes to wear the most respected jersey at the cub?
