Players Muhsin May Keep At Bucs

A number of players' futures at Orlando Pirates have been cast in doubt, but with Muhsin Ertugral being appointed as the club's new coach, he could land up keeping some of those players. Let's take a look at who they are.

Thamsanqa Gabuza and Lehlohonolo Majoro are two players who remain unsure of where they will be playing next season, as their contracts with Pirates expire next week. However, there is a ray of hope.

Reports have suggested that Ertugral may be keen to keep Gabuza at the club, despite the striker having fallen out of form in the latter stages of the past campaign.

The Turkish tactician loves a player who works hard, and in Gabuza, he has that. Together, they could form a special bond, and Ertugral may very well be the right man to reignite the 28-year-old's form.

It wasn't too long ago when Majoro was considered as one of the best strikers in Mzansi, and while "Major" may have come under fire for his tweet last season, Ertugral is the kind of coach who could put his faith in the former Chiefs man.

Of course, a lot depends on the player and his willingness to stay at the club, but Ertugral definitely possesses the knowhow and trust to reignite the scoring touches of these two misfiring forwards.

Meanwhile, another player who could stay is Tshepo Gumede. The defender hasn't been given much game time since his arrival from Platinum Stars, but with the former Ajax Cape Town man known to put his trust in younger players, he could provide Gumede with more minutes.

Who do you think the Turkish mentor will hold on to?
