Confirmed: Pirates Technical Team Member Announces Exit

Another member of the Orlando Pirates technical team has confirmed his exit from the club.

Following the exits of coach Fadlu Davids and performance analyst Darian Wilken, yet another staff member has waved his goodbyes to the Buccaneers.

Unceremoniously, goalkeeper coach Sjoerd Woudenberg on Thursday took to Twitter to quietly announce his departure from Pirates, with no official announcement from the club.

"Unfortunately my journey with Orlando Pirates FC has come to an end. I want to thank everyone at the club and I wish the club all the best for the future," he tweeted.

Woudenberg was roped in at Pirates under then coach Josef Zinnbauer in July last year after parting ways with Cape Town City and was tasked with overseeing the club's goalkeeping department which consists of Siyabonga Mpontshane, Richard Ofori, Kopano Thuntsane.

Wayne Sandilands and Elson Sithole have been released by the club, but the latter is currently in discussions with Pirates over a possible role at the club.

Earlier this week, Pirates announced the departure of six first team players, as well as the acquisition of four more players ahead of the 2022/23 DStv Premiership season.
