Liphoko Trains In Greece

Orlando Pirates’ talented young midfielder, Tshepo Liphoko, is on his way back from a short training spell with Greek side, Atromitos FC.

The 18-year-old spent the latter part of this season on loan with PSL side, Golden Arrows, going on to impress during his time there, and the Siya crew recently revealed that he was awaiting a work permit to travel to Europe.

Now it has been revealed by his representative, Mike Makaab, that Liphoko is on his way home from Greece at present after spending a short time with Atromitos.

Makaab said, “Tshepo has been spending time with Greek side, Atromitos, who have one of our other youngsters, Arago Jamal, who is signed to them. He was just there as part of his development programme and is due back in South Africa this week.”

The player’s representative went on to thank Orlando Pirates’ chairman, Irvin Khoza, for his continued support in helping promote young talent.

He went on, “I want to thank Pirates’ chairman, Irvin Khoza, who has been pivotal in helping develop these young players, he did it for with Nanana Ntuli and now he’s doing with same with Tshepo.”

While it is believed that Liphoko impressed during his time in Greece, Makaab insisted that his spell there was only for development purposes and not as part of a trial.
