TBT: Blaise Lelo Mbele, Pirates’ DRC Magician

Every once in a while, there is a gifted player who graces Mzansi shores with his talent and prowess. One such player was former Orlando Pirates star Blaise Lelo Mbele, whose gifted feet, lit up the PSL.

After leaving Pirates in 2007, Mbele has turned out for an incredible 15 teams across the African continent as well as a few clubs in the east.

Still only 32, Mbele these days plies his trade in the Bahrain second division with Al Ahli Manama Sitra Club.

Bucs fans will have fond memories of the DRC star who fizzed past defenders with his dazzling step overs. He also scored some important goals for the men in black and white.
