Three Appearances All Season For Sangweni, Legend Wants Him To Stay

Orlando Pirates Legend Wants Thamsanqa Sangweni To Stay

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 02, 2018 01:03 PM

Thamsanqa Sangweni should be kept in Orlando Pirates’ squad for next season, despite his lack of game-time at the club, according to one of the club’s legends.

Three appearances throughout the 2017/18 season was all that the midfielder contributed to Bucs’ much improved campaign under coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.

As a result of his lack of enough game-time, the central midfielder has been linked with an exit from the Soweto giants. A move back to KwaZulu-Natal for either AmaZulu or Golden Arrows has been predicted for the Empangeni-born player.    

However, the player’s future will depend on the decision from his current employers at the Buccaneers, as he is still contract to the club for a further two years.

In joining Pirates in July last year, following a move from Chippa United where he impressed with his fine performances, Sangweni was signed on a three-year deal which is set to run until 2020.

Former Pirates striker Andries Sebola would like to see the 29-year-old kept in Bucs’ squad for the new season.

“Thamsanqa Sangweni should stay. He doesn’t have to leave, especially as there will be a lot of travelling, with the team also set to play in Africa, they will need to have cover. Maybe next season is going to be his season. He has learnt that Pirates is not a small team, like the teams he has been at before, at Pirates it is never going to be easy for some of the players. But for him, he’s got the potential to do well at the club,” said Sebola.

I love iNsimbencane and his style of player. He impressed at Sundowns but was still sent to the stands. He impressed with us but was still benched. I think he must go where his talent will be appreciated more.

@Mochini ,,, He must just go back to Chippa or Amazulu where the target is gaining a top 8 position, no pressure :))

@TBS Well, I was just about to say I remember him playing for Sundowns. Now, for Sebola to say he is a small team player would mean he regards Downs as a small team. Surprisingly, his Pirates team used to be taken to school several times by Downs, with several lashes from the likes of Mambush and Joel Fire.

Premier Soccer League (PSL) giants Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly preparing a bid for Black Leopards’ versatile attacker Joseph Mhlongo. The well-traveled forward was one of Lidoda Duvha’s key players during the recent 2017/18 National First Division (NFD) campaign and PSL promotion/relegation playoffs.

He must just pull up his socks qha, he is good but too lazy just like Masalesa. Bucs have always been a hard running team so he doesn't fill the bill
