Bucs Expected To Conclude Another Signing

Orlando Pirates Linked With Another Chippa United Player

By Soccer Laduma - May 29, 2018 12:00 PM

Orlando Pirates are expected to conclude another signing, with the addition of a versatile player from Chippa United set to be finalised. 

With Bucs’ chairman Irvin Khoza having already confirmed in the media that Paseka Mako and Kudakwashe Mahachi have been signed by the Soweto giants, further reports in local media indicate that the Buccaneers could be set to conclude a deal with Abel Mabaso.

Just like Mako has been for Chippa this past season, Mabaso has been influential with his performances for the Eastern Cape outfit.

While both Pirates and Chippa have not yet officially confirmed the news of Mabaso’s signing, with the player’s camp also not forthcoming with any information regarding a potential move, an indication from sources in the know is that the 27-year-old is set to be announced as a new signing for Pirates. 

Mabaso is a former Mamelodi Sundowns player, who came through from the junior ranks at the Chloorkop club and worked his way up to the senior team.

The Durban-born player can play in defence as well as midfield.

Editor please stop using the Orlando Pirates brand to increase your sales by linking the team to any cow you want to advertise, please refrain from doing that.

I do not see him kicking a ball if he decides to join, competition is rough in the middle of the park at Pirates. If Pirates secures Jali's signature then that will be the end of his career

@mlungunomzulu I agree with you. As a Chiefs fan myself, i wouldn't mind him in my team. He is very good on and off the ball. He still have at least 5 good seasons to give to Pirates. People must not get carried away with Nyatama. As much as he is a great player, how many more seasons does his have in his legs since he is in the 30s? Micho and Rhulani know what they are doing.

People are short sighted here Pirates will be campaigning in CCL they need as many players as they can possible get so 60 players might not even be enough

Abel is quality but not the kind we need right now ,I doubt he will get a chance to even kick the ball so if I were him I would stay at chippa and enjoy more game time

As far as I know all those previous signings from Chippa were flops they didn't raise to the pressure of Orlando Pirates so I wonder why we keep on signing them or KHOZA is just fooling with the supporters with this useless signatures of average players why don't we bring big names like other teams.
