Benedict ‘Tso’ Vilakazi has singled out one of Orlando Pirates’ newest recruit as the man to watch during the 2019/20 season.
Speaking to the Siya crew, the former Buccaneers said Fortune Makaringe has caught his eye as a potential success story following his move from Maritzburg United.
“For me Makaringe is a fantastic player and he is going to add an exciting element to the way Pirates play. I think he will come in and add value, because for me Pirates haven’t had this type of player for some time,” Vilakazi said.
Although he did not pick any one player from the reigning Absa Premiership champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, he suggested they would again be the team to beat.
“Sundowns still have the core of the team and they obviously didn’t do much in the transfer window and that means they are happy with what they have at the moment. If you look at the average age as well, maybe they can go on for a few more seasons with the same team. They will still be tough to beat,” Vilakazi explained.
