How Much Pirates Spent On Sangweni

It's official, Orlando Pirates have made their first signing of the season, and he comes in the shape of Thamsanqa Sangweni. But how much did they spend on him?

The Buccaneers announced the arrival of the midfielder on Monday afternoon, seeing him become the second Sangweni brother to play for the club.

Siyabonga Sangweni retired from playing a little over a year ago, and "Thami" will be hoping that he can live up to the legacy his older sibling left behind.

What makes this transfer particularly special is how Pirates managed to snatch the 28-year-old away from Bidvest Wits, despite the player having spent the week training with the PSL champions.

Limited details about Sangweni's transfer have been released, but what remains unknown is how much Dr Irvin Khoza forked out to secure his signature from Chippa United.

According to Transfermarkt, Sangweni's value is said to be about R5.2 million, and he could very well have cost the Soweto giants that impressive sum of money given how in demand he was.

Do you think Pirates paid less or more than R5.2 million for his services?
