Orlando Pirates’ recent signing, Lindokuhle “Ma 11” Mtshali, is heading back to his KwaZulu-Natal club, Real Kings, on loan for the rest of the season.
The NFD outfit has also grabbed the signature of another young Buccaneer in Ntsako “Never Die” Makhubela.
Kings’ coach Simo Dladla, who confirmed the news to Soccer Laduma, realised after his opening draw with Eagles that he needed a player of Mtshali’s quality.
“I could see that we didn’t have options,” he said. “At one stage I wanted to seal the game but couldn’t as we didn’t have someone like Mtshali who’s capable of holding the ball and attacking.
“I’m yet to see Makhubela but am told he’s also a good attacking midfielder and am excited because he never dies.”
A year ago, Makhubela was amongst a group of five players promoted to Pirates’ first team squad.
