Pirates Players' Favourite Footballers

All aspiring footballers, as well as professional footballers, look at other players as role models, but which players do the stars of Orlando Pirates look up to?

Today, I look at which players the Buccaneers consider their favourite footballers. Some of the results are quite interesting… 

Ayanda Gcaba – Daine Klate & Cristiano Ronaldo

Lehlohonolo Majoro – Mario Balotelli

Lucky Lekgwathi – Tlou Segolela

Thabo Rakhale – Puleng Tlolane & Menzi Masuku

Thandani Ntshumayelo – Oupa Manyisa

Thabo Matlaba – Tsepo Masilela

Happy Jele – Lebohang Mokoena & Teko Modise

Oupa Manyisa – Mongezi Bobe & Roger Majafa 

It's great to still see so many local players making up the list!

Also, it comes as no surprise that Balotelli is Majoro’s role model, as he even has a clothing brand inspired by the Italian. 

Ghosts, who is your favourite player?
