Mahamutsa Boost For Pirates

News reaching the Siya crew is that Orlando Pirates defender, Rooi Mahamutsa, could play in Saturday’s Telkom Knockout Final clash against Platinum Stars.

According to sources, Mahamutsa was given the green light to start training by Pirates' doctors and has resumed training.

Mahamutsa’s return to training was confirmed by Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi during today’s open media day ahead of the Telkom Knockout Final.

"It's great that we have Rooi training again. He is a senior player and a great influence," Lekgwathi told the official Pirates twitter account.

Stars beat Pirates in the MTN8 Final a few months ago and Lekgwathi says the Buccaneers will do everything in their power not to let history repeat itself.

"We don't want history to repeat itself. We need to go out there and do the job in a venue that has been good to us," commented Lekgwathi.

"It says a lot about Platinum Stars for them to be the favourites for this final. We will need to be very careful.

"They have a good mix of youngsters & senior players, some of which were ours & they'll have a point to prove,” concluded the Pirates skipper.

Pirates will meet Stars in the Telkom Knockout Final at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday at 20h15.

The game will be televised live on SABC and SuperSport.
