Pirates Consider Recalling On-Loan Defender?

Orlando Pirates are believed to be considering recalling an on-loan defender to strengthen the club's depleted squad, the Siya crew can reveal.

The Buccaneers have been hampered by injuries, with the latest being that of veteran defender and captain Happy Jele who has already also missed the clash against Kaizer Chiefs in the team’s last match before the FIFA international break.

According to Siya sources, Pirates are believed to be considering recalling Justice Chabalala from his loan spell with Sekhukhune United to provide cover as co-coaches Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids work on improving the team’s results and position on the log in the second half of the season.

Chabalala has not been a regular feature for Babina Noko under MacDonald Makhubedu and indications are that Bucs would like to have the 29-year-old centre-back back in the team.

“The situation at Pirates with injuries has made the club to think about recalling Justice Chabalala from his loan at Sekhukhune United. The club is worried that Happy Jele might be out for long and with Olisa Ndah having also given the club a scare with injury prior to the Soweto Derby, Justice Chabalala’s potential return has been discussed,” said the source.
