Four Times Pirates Have Bettered Chiefs In This Transfer Window

Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs are rivals even when it comes to the transfer window, and the former definitely seems to have done better than Bobby Motaung and company this transfer window. Do you know why? Let's take a look.

Beat Them To Chabalala
On Wednesday evening, it was announced that Dr Irvin Khoza had officially beaten Chiefs to the services of Free State Stars' Justice Chabalala. The Soweto giants went head to head for the defender's signature, and Pirates to come out on top in this Soweto Derby. 

Pounced On Free State Stars' Sale
The sale of Free State Stars to Moroka Swallows has left many players' futures in a state of uncertainty, and Bucs' management jumped in and took advantage of the occasion by snapping up Chabalala, Sello Japhta and Ayanda Nkosi in one night. Given Steve Komphela's ties with Ea Lla Koto, Amakhosi fans were expecting to land some of their star players, but lost out instead.

Pirates Have Better Negotiation Skills
This is an extension of the abovementioned points. Dr Khoza's team has pulled all the right strings when it comes to negotiations with players, while Bobby Motaung is yet to add another player to the club's roster since Amakhosi's unveiling of eight new arrivals. Chiefs are yet to land one of their reported upcoming targets.

Bucs Have Actually Managed To Get Rid Of Their Players
Back in June, Chiefs announced that they had transfer-listed a bunch of players, including the likes of Siphelele Mthembu and Siyanda Xulu, but they are yet to part ways with them. Meanwhile, Pirates have managed to loan and sell the players they have deemed surplus to requirements for this season. It seems the Sea Robbers' team is taking better shape than Chiefs' right now.

Where else do you think Pirates have bettered their arch-rivals?
