Goalkeeper Search To Lead Chippa To Pirates?

Chippa United could look to go to Orlando Pirates in their search of a goalkeeper to add to their squad for the 2018/19 season.

With Jackson Mabokgwane struggling for game time at Pirates this season, and with the good working relationship between the Soweto giants and the Port Elizabeth outfit in recent years, some indications have been that a switch to the Eastern Cape could be one of the options for the former Mpumalanga Black Aces net-minder, as reported in edition 1090 of Soccer Laduma.

It is believed that the Chilli Boys would be keen on a goalkeeper of Mabokgwane’s experience and calibre, should he be available for a move in January, or if he is still struggling for regular game time in Milutin Sredojevic’s team.

Mabokgwane, 30, is yet to play in any of the official matches for Bucs this season. He last played an official match for Bucs in February during a 4-2 win against Chippa.
