Lucky Lekgwathi is nearing his final few months as an Orlando Pirates player, but his time at Parktown certainly doesn’t seem over with reports suggesting he will remain at the club. What management role will suit him best?
The Siya Crew repeatedly announced news that Dr Irvin Khoza is expecting to keep Lucky on the books at the club, but in a more technical or managerial role.
Here are the options reportedly available for Lucky…
It has been suggested that when Lucky hangs up his boots, he will take on the role as a team manager of some sort. This will see him manage the happenings in and amongst the first team squad, and help organise the events for the players, as well as handle the admin.
This role could be right down Lucky’s ally, as this position would see him used to inspire the players and help convey his knowledge and experience of the game to the younger members of the squad.
Another option that could be available for Lekgwathi is one of a coaching role in the youth sector. The Pirates Academy is in desperate need of churning out more youth products and Lucky could help be the man to fine-tune the youngsters’ skills.
Ghosts, one way or another, Lucky has to stay at the club. Which role do you think will suit him best?
