Orlando Pirates profile:

Name: Onyekachi Okonkwo     

D.O.B: 13/05/82 

Team: Orlando Pirates

CBL last Year: N/A   

2012/2013 PSL Stats: Played 11, Scored 0    

Orlando Pirates midfielder Onyekachi Okonkwo has started showing signs of regaining the form that made the fans like him during his previous spell with the club.

Okonkwo did a great job in central midfield during the team’s CAF Champions League campaign. His experience is vital to help the youngsters in Roger de Sa’s side.

Tico, as Okonkwo is known in football circles, will be looking forward to his first Carling Black Label Cup appearance this year. The Nigerian will be counting on the fans to vote for him for a chance to play in the derby before the start of the season.

Okonkwo will be happy to play and have a good game on July 27 for a chance to impress the technical team. The 31-year-old will want to make the team’s central midfield position his own in the new season. 

Should this player make the CBL2013 squad for Pirates?
