Orlando Pirates have confirmed the signing of Chippa United duo, Diamond Thopola and Phetso Maphanga, as part of a swap deal.
 
 
They said in a statement on their website today, "Orlando Pirates Football Club is pleased to announce the signings of defenders Diamond Thopola and Phetso Maphanga from Chippa United.
 
"Both players join the club with immediate effect and will be introduced to the coaching staff when training resumes on December 27.
 
"Maphanga is a defender who is in the mould of team captain Thabo Matlaba while Thopola, who was captain of the Chilly Boys is known for his no-nonsense style of play."
 
Thabo Rakhale has gone the other way as part of the deal.

Our defence was not bad as we didn't concede more goal, they managed to absorb the pressure even when forwards were not scoring, I'm not sure which Pirates was watched by whoever is responsible for recruiting players at Pirates. The reason why we're struggling is we don't have an adequate goalkeeper and a prolific striker who we can rely in term of goals and this is one of our problems since early last season. But our management are still chasing defenders including Hlatshwayo

Who bought the players? the coach or management, you guys will go nowhere if you still believe in dictating the coach decisions.

Dr Khoza is so so clever! He's strengthening defence to make sure they don't concede in the remaining 15 games which is guaranteed 15 more points. Add these to the 20 they have, surely 35 points is safe from relegation thanks sir .

Iam glad i stopped going to watch pirates games at stadium since 2015,i must say i have saved alot,imagine going to watch a big team like Bucs with average players leading the attack like Memela and Gabuza its eye sawing,Gabuza is paid to miss goals at bucs and Memela is paid to dribble himself and give opponent's position.
