Squad Decision Imminent, Star Midfielder To Lead Bucs Exodus?

Orlando Pirates To Make Final Decision On Squad For The New Season

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 20, 2018 11:00 AM

With Orlando Pirates back in South Africa after completing their week-long camp in Zambia, and with the club having hosted their end of the season awards, the technical team is nearing making a decision on the final squad for the 2018/19 season.

With over 45 players in Bucs’ current squad, head coach Milutin Sredojevic, assistant Rhulan Mokwena and the rest of the technical team are expected to make a decision on the final squad for the season, with some of the players set to be loaned out and others released if they are no longer in the plans.

As reported in the latest Soccer Laduma, edition 1082, Thamsanqa Sangweni is one of the players strongly linked with an exit from Pirates.

The midfielder has seemingly not been in Bucs’ technical team’s plans. The 29-year-old has not actively been involved in the friendly matches played by the team, so far, during their pre-season training and, according to sources, Bucs are accepting offers for the central midfielder. Sangweni contributed with only three appearances to Bucs’ 2017/18 season, with sources now indicating that the Dondotha-born player has moved further down the pecking order, since the arrival of the new signings at the Soweto giants.

“Sangweni could be one of the players to be released from Pirates. He is out of favour. The thing with him is not about what he can or cannot do on the field. He is talented. The problem is with the misunderstanding that seems to exist between him and the technical team,” said the source.

A three-year contract for the player had been confirmed when he joined the club last year, meaning that he has two more years left to run on his deal with the Buccaneers.

With Bucs having added to their squad the likes of Asavela Mbekile, Meshack Maphangule and Abel Mabaso - who can play in central midfield - competition for places in the team’s starting line-up could prove to be even tougher for Sangweni in the new season.

The central midfielder has been linked to both AmaZulu and Bidvest Wits.

Hehehe now Pirates is winning everything even before the season starts. remember this is the team which is suppose to be the best in the league. In fact they are like an old bakkie which will promise to start but never really take off. Their fluke wins over Chiefs and Sunflops has given them false hope and that is going to be their down fall this season.Anyway I think they are going to be called Zambia Pirates in future because almost their entire squad will be Zambians.Poor Bafana bafana will be be weakened further with the inclusion of Zambia Pirates also recruiting fa lot of Zambians like Chiefs and Sunflops.

This boy's agent is just misleading the boy, and his career is skating on thin ice like that. He needs to also behave like a professional angahambe edubula emoyeni enxanxatheleni yezitolo eGoli

Pirates have special classes on how to use a gun. I would urge Khoza to keep this boy, he is a danger to our community

Release him, Sangweni before he think about to pull the tricker on our chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza.

@Maloh11 Pirates must keep its dirty linen. We do not wield illegal guns at Chiefs. The Sangweni surname is related to Pirates
