Former Orlando Pirates Defender Attracts Interest

Following his exit from Orlando Pirates, Patrick Phungwayo could soon get a new club as there is a team already showing interest in his services.

As reported on the Soccer Laduma website, Pirates confirmed parting ways with the defender and that the contract of the 29-year-old player has been terminated.

The Siya crew has been informed that Free State Stars are interested in Phungwayo. Stars are currently in search for a left back, following the departure of Simphiwe Mtsweni from Bethlehem.

As reported by the Siya crew, Ea Lla Koto are currently assessing the former Bloemfontein Celtic left back, Cheslyn Jampies and according to sources close to Stars, the club would be keen to strengthen their defence with Phungwayo.  

Word reaching the Siya crew is that that the Bethlehem-based side is aiming to conclude a deal for Phungwayo before the transfer window closes on August 31.

Pirates have had a fairly good start to their 2017/18 Absa Premiership campaign, having secured one win and one draw in their first two league outings.

Before parting ways with Phungwayo, Pirates had five left backs at their disposal. Milutin Sredojevic and Rhulani Mokwena had Phungwayo, Mark van Heerden, Nkosinathi Mthiyane, Thabo Matlaba and Innocent Maela to choose from.

It seems as Maela is at the top of the pecking order at left back, while Matlaba has been played at right back. As a result, Phungwayo has been allowed to move on, after he found himself further down the pecking order.

Ea Lla Koto recently confirmed the appointment of Luc Eymael at the helm of the team, following Sammy Troughton’s exit and indications are that the Belgian coach has set his sights on strengthening the team’s defensive department, with Phungwayo’s name thrown in the mix as a possible addition.

It's not good to say this and that player must go (meaning to lose job). These players are fathers, they have families.This coming December their children need clothes and money for school fees.please! let us feel sorry for them.

that's right decision for me, the fans don't coment because they give us a chance on black label but we can't get a win with our selected players we must leave the coach alone and look at the result

I don't know the reason why we had so many left backs. Reshuffling still needed here.
