Lekoelea: Pirates Have Enough Players

Former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Steve Lekoelea, believes that the Buccaneers have signed enough players this season and that he would like to see some second choice defenders get some time on the pitch.

Transfer Watch: This Week’s Transfers

Pirates brought in a number of players over the course of the transfer window, including Riyaad Norodien, Thabiso Kutumela and several others. However, the club has come under criticism for making less reinforcements in defence. The 37-year-old has now said that he believes that the team has done enough in the off-season to constitute a full squad.

“Pirates have enough players at the moment,” he told Soccer Laduma. “I think they have enough players at the back.”

In his discussion of Pirates’ defensive line, Lekoelea added that he would like to see squad players, Patrick Phungwayo and Rooi Mahamutsa, see more game time.

“There are some players that have been on the bench that deserve to play as well,” he continued. “So, (Patrick) Phungwayo and (Rooi) Mahamutsa must play at the back, because they’re good players.”
