Promotion Looms For Bucs Youngster

Orlando Pirates could give Tshepo Liphoko a break by promoting him to the first team in the near future. Liphoko, who will be turning 18 in February, has done well in the junior ranks both at club and international level.

The 17-year-old has already attracted interest from overseas, with Dutch giants FC Twente having made enquiries into the player.  The youngster is currently training with the senior team and is likely to be offered a deal with the PSL side, should he impress coach Roger de Sa and his technical team.

 

“There is a boy training with Pirates. He plays on the right and is a good player. I watched him play recently. He was introduced in the second-half of the game and did very well. The boy is brilliant,” said a source.

 

Former Pirates coach Julio Leal followed the player’s progress closely during his time with the defending league champions. The former Under-17 captain will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Mbongeni Gumede and Ntando Nkala, following the duo’s promotion at the beginning of the season.

 

De Sa is a known fan of young talent, and it will come at no surprise to see Liphoko signed for the first team.
