An earlier plan for Pirates, as confirmed by the club last month, had been that Marcelo would be on his way to Chippa along with Gladwin Shitolo, Phetso Maphanga and Diamond Thopola, following an agreement between the two clubs.

However, Marcelo refused to be part of a deal to join Chippa. The player has taken to social media to bid farewell to the Soweto giants.

“Thanks for everything Buccaneers family. It was a pleasure to participate in this journey with this wonderful club. Thanks for the unconditional support and for the affection. My debut as a professional and my first goal as a professional are special moments that I will take,” said the 21-year-old on his official Twitter account.

Marcelo had been with Pirates since last year, having been signed from Brazilian club Nova Iguaçu Football Club, following Bucs’ 2018 Project X trip to Brazil.
