Bucs Keeper To Extend Stay

Orlando Pirates’ third choice goalkeeper, Brighton Mhlongo, is confident of extending his stay at the club beyond the expiry of his current contract which ends next month.
 
Speaking to the Siya crew, Mhlongo, a product of the Orlando Pirates youth development programme, declared that he wants remain with the Buccaneers and will not seek a loan move to acquire more game-time, but will instead remain to compete with Ghanaian keeper, Abdul Dauda.
 
“My place is here at Pirates, fighting for the number one jersey. Senzo also had to wait for his opportunity for a long time before claiming the number one jersey. I’m also fighting hard and waiting patiently for my time.I have out-grown the stage of going to smaller clubs on loan. In 2010 I went on loan to FC AK for a season and rejoined Pirates in 2011 just after they had won their first treble. That says a lot because, despite the success they had achieved, they wanted me to come back and be part of the team. I was also part the team that went all the way to the finals of the CAF Champions League, so for me leaving Pirates would be a step back,” explained Mhlongo.
 
The 23-year-old went on to explain that his representatives are in advanced negotiations, and that he expects to be with the club next season. “My management is currently taking care of the contract talks,” added Mhlongo.
