Maraisane Confirms He Is A Buccaneer, But…

Former South African Under-20 star midfielder, Pule Maraisane, has confirmed that he has signed a contract with Orlando Pirates.

It was revealed by the Siya crew in June that Maraisane has been expected to join the Buccaneers for the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season.

However, the Soweto giants have since officially confirmed nine new signings for the upcoming season, with Maraisane’s name not appearing in any of the announcements by the club.

In an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, edition 1131, Maraisane confirmed that he has signed a deal with the Soweto giants.

“Don’t get me wrong, I am very excited that I will be donning the Black and White of Bucs and at the possibility of playing in the Soweto Derby, but I was not expecting to be called by Pirates when they did. Dr. Irvin Khoza (Pirates chairman) called me and that was the shocking part because he is a big person in South African football, the chairman of the PSL. To be honest, I didn’t think that he even knew me until he called me. It is not every day that you get recognition from someone like him,” said Maraisane, in his interview with Soccer Laduma.

Regarding not being announced by the club as their new player, the 24-year-old midfielder said, “No there are things that I am still sorting out with the team. I will be announced soon,” adding that he is not at liberty to talk about the ‘things’ he is talking about.

The player confirmed that he has been training with the team on their return for pre-season, although he was left out of the travelling squad to camp which recently concluded in Rustenburg in the North West.
