Mathe: Pirates Should Re-Sign Mobara

With Orlando Pirates believed to be showing an interest in Cape Town City’s Abbubaker Mobara, former Bucs midfielder Solomon Mathe says the versatile player could make it at the Soweto giants if he was to return for a second spell. 

As reported in edition 1202 of Soccer Laduma, Pirates are believed to be interested in their former player, in what comes as a big surprise to the local football fraternity.

According to Siya sources, Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer has identified the utility player as a transfer target, following his impressive performances for the Mother City outfit. 

It is believed that the German coach rates the 26-year-old highly and believes that he would add value to his star-studded squad, despite a relatively unsuccessful spell with the Buccaneers before returning to the Cape.

“All I can say is that if it’s the coach himself who wants him then he should go. I think Pirates should re-sign the boy if the current coach likes him and sees a role for him in the team. We don’t know what happened in the past, maybe he was signed by the management. Maybe it was the management who liked him the last time he was there and now that the coach wants him it’s a good thing because it means that he will be in his plans if he joins the club,” said Mathe, speaking to the Siya crew.

“The boy’s confidence is high again now as he is playing regularly and doing well for Cape Town City. Mobara is a quality player and is one of my favourite players in the PSL. I have always liked him from his days at Ajax Cape Town, the boy is just quality,” Mathe added.

Mobara was at Bucs between 2016 and 2019 and had been signed under Muhsin Ertugral when he joined the club in 2016.
