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.
