Loan Watch, Bucs Young Star’s Decision Imminent…

An Orlando Pirates youngster, who has been making progress with his impressive performances while on loan this season, is set to return to the club.

In helping him to gain more experience for a chance to play for the first team again, Pirates loaned Yusuf Maart for the 2018/19 season.

The 23-year-old midfielder has been impressive with his performances for Cape Umoya United, much to the delight of the Buccaneers, according to sources.

Maart’s contribution to the NFD team’s progress has seen them reach the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup.

It was under Swedish coach, Kjell Jonevret, that Maart was promoted to Bucs’ first team as a 21-year-old in 2017.

The Swedish mentor went on to give the youngster his official debut for Bucs during that year’s Nedbank Cup match against EC Bees from the ABC Motsepe League. 

Jonevret said at the time about his decision, telling Pirates’ official website, “Yusuf worked hard at training and was one of the guys I saw directly that he wants to go forward. He is positive in his approach and he is a hard worker. So, yes, it was absolutely worth it to give him a chance. We gave him five to ten minutes but hopefully, that will encourage him to work even harder. I think he has a bright future ahead of him.”

Pirates’ technical team will be expected to make a decision on Maart’s future in due course, as they will soon be finalising the squad for next season.
