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.

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.
