Decision Made On 2 Pirates Stars

A decision has been made on the two Orlando Pirates stars who are spending the season on loan elsewhere for the 2019/20 season.

Pirates, who sent both Diamond Thopola and Meshack Maphangule to Chippa United on loan in an original agreement that was set to run until May, have decided not take the players back until at least the end of the season in September.

Although the two players will be returning to Orlando where the Chilli Boys will be playing their remaining home matches of the campaign and sharing the venue with Absa Premiership log leaders Kaizer Chiefs, the duo will be waiting to hear from the Buccaneers about their future beyond this season.

Maphangule has been the most successful of the two players in getting game-time at the Eastern Cape outfit as he has already made 19 league starts, while Thopola has started in only two matches.   

New Chippa coach, Lehlohonolo Seema, will hope that the experience of the two players will help the team to safety in the remaining matches of the season.
