Jele's 14 Years Of Loyal Service At Pirates Commemorated!

While the wait is on for Happy ‘Magents’ Jele regarding his future at Orlando Pirates, the club has paid tribute to the veteran defender for the years of loyal service in the team.

Jele, 33, has been with the Buccaneers for almost 14 years now, having joined the club in 2006 as a little known youngster coming from Middelburg.

“I remember Happy Jele arriving at Pirates as I was leaving the club. He has worked very hard at Pirates and achieved a lot. He has won trophies and leading with example as the captain of the club. He has achieved a lot for a player of his age. He is doing well. He is good to be around in the team to give advice to the younger players and new players as a senior player,” former Pirates midfielder Hleza Mofedi told the Siya crew.

As reported by the Siya crew, the future of the Pirates captain had been yet to be decided after he entered into the final six months of his contract at the Soweto giants.

Jele's current deal will expire at the end of next month, though the Buccaneers have an option to keep him at the club up to at least the end of the 2020/21 season if it is exercised.

In commemorating Jele's loyal service to the club through their media department, Bucs have shared a video of the skipper lining up with the different squads of players he has played with over the years.
