Former Winger Nears Achievement With Bucs
Legend Closes In On Orlando Pirates Achievement
Former Bucs winger, Philani Kubheka, is close to achieving success with the Soweto giants.
Kubheka is one of the junior coaches at Pirates and during his time as a professional footballer, Kubheka made a name for himself as a winger for Bucs, before spending over a decade playing for clubs in Asia, particularly in Vietnam and Malaysia.
On his return to Mzansi, after retiring from playing professional football, Kubheka was appointed as a youth coach for Pirates, under the mentorship of Augusto Palacios.
Kubheka is currently in charge of Bucs’ SAB League team and with the guidance of the Bergville-born mentor, Pirates are closing in on the SAB League’s promotional play-offs.
With three games left in the current league campaign, the club needs to win all three games in order to ensure league honours, while also booking a spot in the play-offs, for a chance to campaign in the ABC Motsepe League.
