Bucs’ Interest In Defender On Hold

Pirates’ Interest In Defender Has Been Put On Hold

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 28, 2017 07:29 PM

Despite the interest from Orlando Pirates on Diamond Thopola from Chippa United, the player is likely to stay put with his current employers in Port Elizabeth.

Thopola emerged as one of the transfer targets for Bucs in this transfer window. However, an indication from sources close to the Chilli Boys is that the team’s coach Dan Malesela is not willing to lose the player at this stage.

Moreover, it seems as if Bucs and Chippa have finalised their business for the time being, after the Soweto giants signed Thamsanqa Sangweni from the Eastern Cape club, while the likes of Brighton Mhlongo, James Okwuosa and Mahlatse Makudubela have moved the opposite direction from Pirates.

“It’s true that the player’s name has been discussed about a potential move to Pirates, however, it is unlikely to happen during this transfer window. Maybe it can happen in the future.

“What is also true is that the player’s contract with Chippa will come to an end at the end of next season. Chippa is keen to extend the player’s contract. The club wants to add another year on his contract, but there has been no guarantee as yet on whether the player will extend his contract with the club or not.

“What is certain is that he will be a free agent if things remain the same at the end of the upcoming season. He can then join Pirates or any other interested club on a free,” said the source.

The main problem with these lineups is that the fans who voted are black label drinkers. Izibotho the majority of them. They know very little about diski. They spend most of their time in sheebens and tarvens sipping on their black beer.

CONTRARY to popular belief, former Bafana Bafana captain Mbulelo “OJ” Mabizela has not retired from the beautiful game. Mabizela has given iDunusa reason to cheer with his impressive displays in central defence for KZN Legends. Now aged 36, Mabizela believes he still has a lot to offer local football if given a chance. “I have not called it quits yet. I am still going strong. It’s just that people tend to focus on my reputation and history and think I’m finished. “Any team interested in my services, I’m available. One day I will have a chance to tell my side of the story and put to rest these bad boy stories once and for all,” Mabizela said.

Pirates should just go all out in search of a quality centre back to partner Chabalala, Mobara must then keep that right back position. Sangweni is there to play the holding role.
