The Numbers Game: Bucs Jersey Merry-Go-Round

Orlando Pirates have officially unveiled their players’ jersey numbers ahead of the 2019/20 season, with some of the club’s new stars swapping number’s with their famous counterparts.

With Pirates having brought in nine new signings for the upcoming season, the likes of Mpho Makola, Kudakwashe Mahachi, Thabo Matlaba, Thabo Qalinge and Jackson Mabokgwane all had to make way.

This naturally led to the new signings inheriting previously vacated jersey numbers. There has also been some internal jersey swapping amongst the players.

Here are some of the players who have inherited jersey numbers from former Buc’s stars.

Jersey number 5:

Previous owner: Makola
New Owner: Ntsikelele Nyauza

Jersey number 7:
