Lekgwathi: Khoza Will Decide My Future

Orlando Pirates captain, Lucky Lekgwathi, says he is waiting on club Chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza, to decide his future with the Buccaneers.

The 37-year-old defender will see his contract with Pirates expire at the end of June. There has been talks that it would not be renewed, but Lekgwathi insists that he is not worried about his future at Pirates.

“I feel good and I can still play. I have achieved a lot with this club, and I will be here to serve in any capacity the Chairman asks me to serve,” Lekgwathi told the official Pirates website.

“I am happy with how things went for us throughout the past season. We failed to win the League, but we salvaged our season by winning the Nedbank Cup; that is a great achievement taking into consideration the amount of matches we played and the competitions we were in,” added Lekgwathi.

“My biggest wish is to now win an African competition. We will go back into the continent to fight in the Confederation Cup, and this remains my biggest wish. I am a member of the team, so let us see what happens when we return for pre-season,” concluded Lekgwathi.

Lekgwathi joined Pirates from the now defunct Ria Stars back in 2002. He led the Buccaneers to two trebles in the 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons.

It remains to be seen if Pirates will offer Lekgwathi another contract, or if he will be re-deployed to another position within the club.
