Jele played alongside Ayanda Gcaba in central defence for Muhsin Ertugral’s side during the team’s 3-1 win over Golden Arrows in the opening game of the season.

Jele’s absence in the line-up came as a blow in the MTN8 as Bucs lost 2-1 to the Students on Saturday evening. Pirates confirmed on the club’s official website that Jele is expected to return to training by the end of the week.
