The new Bucs keeper who has added competition to the goalkeeping department at the Parktown-based club expressed his excitement at the prospect of facing the Buccaneers’ fiercest rivals, Kaizer Chiefs.

“I am delighted to have finally signed for Pirates,” said the 28-year-old on the club’s official website.

“In the past there was talk that I could be joining them so now that it has happened I can say it’s a dream come true.

“Every player growing up in South Africa has the ambition to play for either Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs and I am no different.”

“The Soweto Derby is one match we all dream of playing in and now that I have joined Pirates, that dream will become a reality,” added the Shot stopper.

"I am looking forward to the new challenge and I hope that all goes to plan because this move as I said before is a dream come true,” he concluded.

Mpontshane will add some much-needed depth as Pirates prepare for the hectic schedule ahead, including their participation in the CAF Confederation Cup.
