Lekgwathi Back In Pirates Squad

News reaching the Siya crew is that veteran defender and captain, Lucky Lekgwathi, has been included in the Orlando Pirates squad for the CAF Champions League Final first leg against Al Ahly on Saturday.

The Pirates captain missed the last couple of games since his outburst after he was dropped for the MTN8 Final loss to Platinum Stars.

Word has it that Bucs' coach, Roger de Sa, has been impressed with the partnership of Rooi Mahamutsa and Ayanda Gcaba at the back, and has told Lekgwathi to fight for his place in the team.

A source within the Pirates camp has confirmed to the Siya crew that the Pirates captain has been named in Bucs' squad for the final.

According to the source, Lekgwathi will take Joseph Molangoane’s place in the team, who has since been dropped for this crucial encounter against the African giants.

It is not clear at this stage if Lekgwathi will start the game against Al Ahly or take up a position on the bench.

Pirates will take on Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League Final first leg at Orlando Stadium on Saturday night at 20h30.
