Pirates’ Reported Interest In Star Duo Refuted!

Orlando Pirates’ reported interest in AmaZulu star duo has been refuted by the KwaZulu-Natal club.  

In recent weeks, a potential switch to Gauteng has been bandied about for AmaZulu goalkeeper Siyabonga Mbatha, with indications that Pirates have shown an interest in his services.

Furthermore, it has been confirmed by sources close to the Durban-based club for some time now that in-form striker Bonginkosi Ntuli’s name has also been on the wish list of the Buccaneers.

However, speaking to the Siya crew, AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela denied reports linking Mbatha and Ntuli with a move to Pirates.

“There is nothing that we are discussing for Ntuli and Mbatha, and now the stories are just being created because there’s a vacuum and there’s no stories in the market,” Sokhela told the Siya crew.

“There’s no club that has approached us (and) we have not even shown any interest (in selling). Our only focus is on coming back, playing and ensuring that we secure our status and finish in the best possible position. We are not even thinking of releasing any players (and) we are not engaging anybody when it comes to the release of any players,” he said.

“These players are still contracted, they are still committed to the club and we are committed to them. That’s the end of the story and all these things are just being caused to destabilise us and we’d appreciate if the media could stop this because this is quite malicious,” the club official concluded.
