Ntuli Leaves Pirates This Month

Orlando Pirates midfielder, Nhlakanipho Ntuli, looks set to leave the club for FC Twente without making a single first team appearance.

The highly-rated 17-year-old has had an agreement in place for over a year now stating that he will join the Dutch outfit’s first team when he turns 18, although he rejoined the Buccaneers this season as he hoped to earn himself a bit of game time in the PSL.

However, with ‘Nanana’ celebrating his 18th birthday next week, on February 10, he has already been handed a return date by the Eredivisie side, and is set to jet out of Mzansi on February 21.

Under Roger de Sa, Ntuli was kept in the stands training with the first team, but not making the match day squad. Now with Eric Tinkler taking over following De Sa’s resignation, there are just five games left between now and Ntuli’s departure date.

Speaking to the Siya crew, Ntuli said, “I am who I am today because of Orlando Pirates. They’ve been good to me for eight years and I’ll always be grateful for that. I wish them good luck for the rest of the season.”

The attacking midfielder, who has captained South Africa at youth levels, played a prominent role in Amajita’s recent COSAFA U20 win in Lesotho and is tipped to have a bright future ahead of him.
