The big news this week was the departure of Orlando Pirates midfielder, Andile Jali, for Belgian club, KV Oostende, although that wasn’t the only thing that happened.

While his agent, Mike Makaab, was quick to point out the main reason why Oostende was chosen:
@MikeMakaab: “It is important for a player's first move into Europe to be one that gives him a real chance to have game time, adjust to a new country, etc”
