Ndulula’s Israel Trip Falls Through

Orlando Pirates striker Bongani Ndulula will no longer be leaving for Israel, after failing to get permission to leave. The former South African Under-23 international was hoping to attend a trial with Bnei Sakhnin in the Israeli Premier League.

Ndulula has struggled for game time at Pirates this season, making only two substitute appearances in the team’s attempt to defend their league title.

 

A source close to the negotiations between the respective parties told the Siya crew that the former Bloemfontein Celtic player is set to continue fighting for his place in Roger de Sa’s team after failing to make the overseas trip.

 

“It’s unlikely to happen. Pirates didn’t give him permission. What date is it now? It’s almost the end of the month. They didn’t authorise it earlier and I don’t see how they would do it now,” said the source.

 

Ndulula, who had his name left out of the Pirates squad for the CAF Champions League, will hope to get a chance ahead of seasoned campaigners like Benni McCarthy and Collins Mbesuma in the starting eleven.

 

The player’s contract with the club expires in June. The 23-year-old is yet to hear if he will be retained on a new deal, or if he will be allowed to leave for another club at the end of the season.
