‘Pirates Should Break The Bank For Tyson’

Orlando Pirates have been advised to break the bank for Thulani ‘Tyson’ Hlatshwayo, who has been the club’s top transfer target for some time now. 

With the 2019/20 season expected to end soon after the enforced PSL break due to the Coronavirus, the Bidvest Wits and Bafana Bafana captain is again being strongly linked with a potential move to the Buccaneers just like it has been the case in recent seasons.

Former Pirates player Nkosinathi Mqobongo explains why he thinks Hlatshwayo would be a good buy for the Soweto giants. 

“Pirates do need a defender of his quality. I would advise that they do everything possible to get Tyson, especially also considering that (Happy) Jele is getting older now. If you look at it, Jele doesn’t have a permanent partner in Pirates defence. Sometimes he plays with (Ntsikelelo) Nyauza and at times when Nyauza isn’t there he has been playing with the boy from (Bloemfontein) Celtic – (Alfred) Ndengane,” Mqobongo told the Siya crew.

Hlatshwayo’s current contract with the Students is set to until at least June 2022, which means that Bucs would have pay a transfer fee for the experienced player’s services.

“Jele is over 32 now (Jele turned 33 in January) and that means he has to be managed properly and carefully. In that kind of situation you can’t expect a player to play each and every game. Pirates should break the bank for Tyson if that what it means to get him. You must remember that he too isn’t getting any younger as he is now also 30. So, if they (Pirates) are to sign him they should do is as soon as possible,” Mqobongo added.
