Orlando Pirates have announced their new signings for the 2018/19 season.  

As previously reported by the Siya crew, all nine players have been strongly linked with the Soweto giants, as the team is preparing for the new season under coach Milutin Sredojevic and his technical team.  

The Buccaneers confirmed all their nine signings on the club's official website.  

"Orlando Pirates Football Club is delighted to announce the signings of Brilliant Khuzwayo, Vincent Pule, Ben Motshwari, Meshack Maphangule, Asavela Mbekile, Linda Mntambo, Abel Mabaso, Paseka Mako and Kudakwashe Mahachi.

"More details on the signings will be made available closer to the start of pre-season. The nine players will join the rest of the squad when the team returns for pre-season training on June 18.

"Strengthening of the squad has been the number one priority for the administrative office in anticipation of a gruelling season which will see the Club competing in five competitions, including the CAF Champions League, which starts in November. 

"The Absa Premiership is expected to start on the weekend of the 3-5th August 2018," Pirates confirmed on the club's official website.

Good signings for always building for next season, but Khuzwayo is a doubt for me, there is no Chiefs player who switched to Pirates and perform well, I hope he does

It looks there is a lot of agents on soccerladuma who are trying to sgn players for Bobby Motaung. My take is let them sign its their right and their money while Motaung is chewing his fingers. After all it is his daddy money anyway but please guys worry about your teams and your new recruits because Bobby is waiting for freebies. Remember it's only Motsepe who doesn't worry about the pay bill while the rest need to balance the books for coming year. NB there is still the issue of Moses Mabhida stadium to pay off.hahahahahahah.

Bucs are preparing for the champions league, remember,there would be more games to play so we needed these quality to compete at every tournament without worrying about fatigue and injuries. We are thinking ahead unlike some team we all know

Truth be told Pirates did some pretty good business in the current transfer window. Especially given the fact that we landed so many quality players as free agents. I think we need to stop signing as we have enough depth in every position. I see people saying we need to sign defenders but truth be told we have more than enough. Justice Chabalala, Shitolo, Nyauza, Maela, Matlaba, Van Heerden, Skhakhane, Dube and Mobara are more than adequate in my view. we just need to loan out a few players; Nkosi, Maart, Mbulu and Foster. Release the following; Gabuza, Sangweni, Jele, Gcaba, Sarr and Rakhale

We welcome all the players to our lovely pirates. The advise I will give to the new players is that when you come to Pirates it does not mean you have made it. There is still big challenges to be conquered. Pirates is not a club but an institute. Therefore, you do not rest on your laurels. There is history to be made. And we want you to be part of that history. We are the history makers

I honestly don't see the logic of signing so many players.
