Gumede: Why I Joined Pirates

New Orlando Pirates defender, Tshepo Gumede, has attributed his recent three-and-half year deal with the Buccaneers as purely being a football decision.

Tshepo Gumede Knows who he will sign for 

The crew previously reported that the former Platinum Stars man had made up his decision on which club to join, following weeks of speculation on which club he would join after the crew had revealed that he was on the wanted lists of both Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.

Speaking to the crew, the 23-year-old centre back declared that a football decision is what motivated him to sign for Pirates.

“Choosing to sign for Pirates was a footballing decision,” said Gumede.

“I signed with the club because of the way they play and their philosophy. I wanted to sign for a club where I could fit in with my style of play. Also what attracted me to Pirates was their ambition and this is something I want to contribute towards,” added the defender.

Gumede is seen as the young blood defender roped in to freshen up Bucs' aging defence and be the eventual replacement for the injury stricken Pirates skipper, Lucky Lekgwathi.
