Nigerian Goalkeeper Still At Bucs
Orlando Pirates Still Have Nigerian Goalkeeper At The Club
The Nigerian goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel has resurfaced at Orlando Pirates.
Following his arrival at the club, Bucs’ head coach Milutin Sredojevic confirmed in August that Daniel would not be with them in the first team. The Buccaneers have filled their goalkeeping department this season with Wayne Sandilands, Jackson Mabokgwane and Siyabonga Mpontshane.
Sandilands has emerged as the team’s number one goalkeeper for the current campaign and the former Mamelodi Sundowns shot-stopper has played in all the team’s games thus far this season.
Mabokgwane has been deputising for him, while Mpontshane has been recovering from injury.
While it was thought that Daniel would be on his way out of Pirates, the 23-year-old made a surprise return to the club in their MultiChoice Diski Challenge team.
The former Enugu Rangers shot-stopper was in goals for Bucs in their MDC game against Bloemfontein Celtic on the weekend. Daniel replaced Tsebo Tsotetsi who was in goals for Bucs in their opening game of this season’s MDC.
