5 Of Pirates’ Biggest European Exports

After the Siya crew reported that Portuguese outfit SC Maritimo have tabled a lucrative offer for Orlando Pirates forward Justin Shonga, we take a look at five of Pirates’ biggest exports to Europe.

Following a stellar start to life at Pirates two seasons ago, the Zambian has fallen down the Soweto giants’ pecking order and does not appear to be in the plans of coach Josef Zinnbauer.

With indications that the player is ready for a fresh start elsewhere, it would be no surprise to see him jump ship at the end of the current season.

However, he will not be the first Bucs star to make the move to Europe.

Marshall Munetsi, who recently revealed that Pirates’ are a team that prepares players for European football made the move from Bucs to Stade Reims in July 2019, has gone on to assert himself in France.

After just one season with the French side, the Zimbabwean has earned a contract extension that will see his deal with the team end in June 2024 instead of the initial 2023 agreement.

Munetsi has featured prominently, since making his move almost a year ago and has featured 21 times in all competitions this season.
