Mpontshane Name On Bucs Transfer List?

Siyabonga Mpontshane To Make Bucs Exit In January?

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 13, 2017 10:14 AM

The Siya Crew has been reliably informed that Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Siyabonga Mpontshane could be among the players set to exit the club in January.

The 31-year-old former Platinum Stars shot-stopper has struggled to make a tallying contribution since joining the Buccaneers in the 2014/15 season. Since his arrival at the Parktown-based club, Mpontshane has not made it double figures in terms of league appearances with the most league starts amounting to six in the 2015/16 season.

Mpontshane’s lack of game-time for the Soweto Giants has also seen him lose his place in the Bafana Bafana squad where he is now seen as the third choice keeper behind Wayne Sandilands and Jackson Mabokgwane.

Though the KwaZulu Natal-born player was heavily linked with an exit from the club only a season after signing from them following the arrival of Equatorial Guinea goalkeeper Felipe Ovono, Mpontshane opted to remain with the club and continue fighting for his position in the Bucs goalkeeping department.

However, sources close to the player have indicated his move to get more game-time elsewhere.

“Siya has given it his all at Pirates and has used every opportunity to play. Pirates is a big team and if you are the third choice keeper it’s unlikely you will play often especially if the goalkeepers ahead of you are both Bafana keepers,” said the source.

Mpontshane is yet to feature in a league encounter for the Buccaneers in this current campaign.

@nazzi the second I Might Be Clueless Like You Say But Can You Tell Me How Many Man Of The Match Perfomances Did Mhlongo Produce For Bucs And For Someone Who Knows Football Like You Its Shocking To Judge A Goalkeeper Due To One Bad Game As If Cassillas Never Cost Spain World Cup???

@nazzi the second It's not about others being clueless when coming to football, but how one sees and evaluate players. Mpontshane might be good in your eyes, but not to others. Just like me, I see Patrick Tinyemb as the best goalkeeper in PSL, but since he plays for a less watched and small team, the majority will say Khune and Onyango. My point is that, we as football supporters, we use different equations/criteria to rate players/goalkeepers.

IT'S OBVIOUS WHY WE FAILING AS A NATION EVEN MOST OF OUR FANS ARE CLUELESS ABOUT FOOTBALL, HOW CAN ANYONE SAY MHLONGO WAS A GOOD KEEPER? HOW DO YOU LET MPONTSHANE GO AHEAD OF MABOGWANE, IT'S OBVIOUS THAT MOST OF YOU ONLY WATCH HIGHLIGHTS AND CHECK THE SCORES ONLY, JUST COZ WE CONCEDED LESS DOESNT MAKE MABOGWANE A GOOD KEEPER, VERY CLUMSY KEEPER SAME LEVEL AS MHLONGO, SANDILANDS AND MPOTSHANE ARE ALSO NOT THE BEST BUT THEY ARE BETTER THAN THOSE CLUMSY TWO

@BucsEternally Why is he not number one at a small team like Chippa if he is so good? He made huge mistakes and was only good during penalty kicks. The 6-0 drubbing by SSU was his fault and the less we talk about the Mabogwane and Mpontshane the better. All goalkeepers that came after Senzo are just useless. Chippa United have a great goalkeeper in that Nigerian guy. He is good on crosses and not easily intimidated.
