Pirates Adding Experience On And Off The Field
Orlando Pirates Have Added Experience In Their Office
It seems like Orlando Pirates are not only adding experience on the field but off it as well, as the club begins its planning for the 2017/18 season.
The club’s first major signing during this window is the experienced Thamsanqa Sangweni from Chippa United and it is expected that the central midfielder will add the much-needed experience to the team.
The Soweto giants will also have the brains of Derek Blanckensee in their office to carry them through in their day to day operations.
The former PSL general manager joined the Buccaneers in an administrative role and it is understood he plans to assist the club in their turnaround plans for the 2017/18 season.
“He will be doing administration work. He is good in administration and with matters to do with paperwork and stuff,” said the source.
Having previously held a role of Chief Executive Officer at Bidvest Wits among some top football jobs he has had, Blanckensee is one of the experienced and respected administrators in Mzansi.
