Bucs Hint At Adding More Players

Orlando Pirates set to bolster team with reinforcements for CAF aspirations

By Mkhize - Apr 23, 2018 05:56 PM

Orlando Pirates have hinted at adding more players to their roster should they successfully qualify for next year’s CAF Champions League.

The Soweto giants look set to qualify for continental football as they are currently in second place behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns with three games remaining in the league. 

“The technical team is currently assessing the situation and what I can say is that should the team confirm their place in Champions League, more players will be added to the team,” said the source.

“One of the areas that team is looking at (is) in the striking department. Continental football is very demanding and the team want to do well in both their league and CAF aspirations,” added the source.

It is understood that the club could look at roping in as many as two more strikers to be part of the team.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers will look at attaining maximum points when they meet Bidvest Wits in a midweek league clash to be played behind closed doors, following a ruling made by the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee against Pirates for fan violence in the fixture against Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Stadium on February 11, 2017.

With players they have now they can win games not trophies.They need to add players because there is no left back no right back add central defence and one good striker especially in the air.

Do we really need a striker? Are we short of goals? Are we playing bad football? Do we have a conceding problem? (yes we have) So which players must we sign? When are we going to have a good central defender and a good no4? Our goal keeping department is solid yes Im satisfied but our backline is too silky

They should start by trying to bring Jali back on board citing we need quality players in order to be competitive,Tyson must also be considered to the very roster,hopeful we'll b able to recruit a quality centre forward even though i'll still value Prince Nxumalo to be on the roster as proven goalscorer i believe he wont disapoint under de guidance of prof Micho...goalkeeping department maybe Reyard could be a right choice considering his height he'll be a handful when comes to airial balls situations
