Who Should Partner Gcaba In Defence?

One of Muhsin Ertugral's first decisions as Orlando Pirates coach will be to figure who the right partner to line-up alongside Ayanda Gcaba in the heart of defence is. Who is your favourite to do so? 

Last season, the Bucs backline was hit with a number of injuries, and it also saw Siyabonga Sangweni forced into an early retirement.

Rooi Mahamutsa has been a stalwart for Pirates over the years, but his injuries last season limited him to just 13 appearances, allowing Edwin Gyimah to slot in at the back.

Meanwhile, Tshepo Gumede's future at the club is increasingly growing uncertain, especially as there are rumours the club may use him to bring Jackson Mabokgwane to the club.

In addition, Abbubaker Mobara's arrival at the club has put a spanner in the works, as his original position is the centre back role; however, he can also play in midfield.

Ertugral has a number of options available to him. Take a look through the gallery to see who he has available to partner Gcaba at the back.

What is your ideal centre-back pairing for Pirates?
