What Gumede Will Bring To Pirates

Orlando Pirates fans will no doubt be excited at the prospect of seeing their new signing, Tshepo Gumede, donning the black and white strip of the Buccaneers. Having said that, the Fan Park crew will take a look at how Gumede will positively affect the team.

Vigour In Defence

With current centre-backs Rooi Mahamutsa, Siyabonga Sangweni and Lucky Lekgwathi all being well over 30 years of age, the 23-year-old's zest will no doubt invigorate things at the back for Bucs. Also, should he not be a first team regular from the get-go, he would no doubt be a quality back-up player.

Big Match Temperament

Being a key figure for former club Platinum Stars in defence, the youngster managed to become an important member of a Dikwena outfit which became giant killers in cup tournaments in South Africa. Being a Bucs player requires big match temperament, and Gumede has no problem in that regard.

Quality In Depth

Along with Mahamutsa, Sangweni, Lekgwathi and Ayanda Gcaba, Gumede would no doubt be a great addition in defence and will add much needed depth and quality in defence.

With that said, will Gumede be the missing piece in Bucs' ageing defence?
