The Next Bucs Star To Move Abroad?

In recent years, Orlando Pirates were fortunate enough to send some of the brightest South African talents abroad.

The Fan Park Crew now looks at few current players that could have the potential to play abroad.

Thabo Qalinge

Qalinge was a wanted man in South African football circles before joining Pirates from Mpumalanga Black Aces at the start of the season. His pace, trickery and innovation stand out, and overseas-based suitors may want to monitor this young talented winger.

Thabo Matlaba

Matlaba is known to be one of the best left-backs in South Africa as his attacking abilities are second to none. What may get the attention of scouts is Matlaba’s stamina and passing range, something required of a top-class full-back.

Oupa Manyisa

Ace has long been a standout midfielder in the South Africa and his continental style of playing the game is something that may have caught the attention of scouts. Like Matlaba, Manyisa will have no problem with regards to work rate. However, Manyisa’s ability to dictate the game is his best attribute.

Menzi Masuku

Masuku gets a mention in this regard as he has been one of Pirates' top performers in the MultiChoice Diski challenge this year. After receiving a call up to the first team, Masuku’s progress will be something to keep an eye on.

Who else do you think can make the cut abroad?
