No Sarr In Bucs' Pre-Season Trip To Zambia?

Orlando Pirates are currently in Zambia for their pre-season camp and as previously reported by Soccer Laduma, the Soweto giants are playing a series of friendlies against African clubs. 

Last week Thursday, the Buccaneers took on Congolese giants, TP Mazembe and since then the South Africans have played Power Dynamos and Ndola Select. However, a notable absentee at the games has been the veteran midfielder, Issa Sarr.

In their first friendly against Mazembe Pirates fielded three different sides and the 31-year-old, who has been heavily linked with an exit from the club since January,  failed to feature in the game.

Siya sources had indicated that the midfielder was set to reunite with his former side, Platinum Stars, but after Dikwena’s relegation to the National First Division, the player's future remains uncertain.  

The likes of Xola Mlambo, Asavela Mbekile and new boy, Abel Mabaso have been given runs in Bucs' central midfield, further pushing the Senegalese midfielder down the pecking order. 

The 2017/18 season was Sarr’s worst season for the Soweto giants, as he struggled to break into double figures for appearances since joining Pirates four seasons ago. Sarr only managed six league appearances, with only two starts versus the 20 league starts in the season before.  

Meanwhile, the club has since unveiled its new kit for the upcoming 2018/19 season and are expected back in the country this week to continue their pre-season training before the league officially starts in August.
