Orlando Pirates

Another Pirates Exit Looming

Following confirmation that three players would be heading out on loan at Orlando Pirates last week, the Siya crew has been informed there could be yet another exit.

Indications are that Mthokozisi Dube, the right back who spent the previous season at Golden Arrows, is expected to return to the KwaZulu-Natal outfit and this time it is believed the deal might very well be permanent.

The Buccaneers announced on Friday that Austin Muwowo and Monnapule Saleng would be joining Swallows, while Justice Chabalala is headed to Chippa United.

Pirates promoted Dube to the first team in 2007, but the player has had several loan spells over the years – the most notable ones being to Bloemfontein Celtic and Arrows.

He was a regular at Arrows with 27 matches in all competitions under then coach Mandla Ncikazi, who has since made a shock move to Pirates as the club’s assistant to head mentor Josef Zinnbauer alongside Fadlu Davids.

Ncikazi was replaced by Lehlohonolo Seema at Arrows.

According to Siya sources, another contributing factor to Dube’s possible Pirates departure is the fact that the Buccaneers have signed Bandile Shandu, meaning he returns from his loan spell to find even more competition.

Kwanda Mngonyama, another new Pirates arrival, can also play right back as well as at centre-back, which would limit Dube’s game time.

The Siya crew has also been informed that Dube has one more year left on his contract, so it remains to be seen whether he leaves the Soweto giants permanently or on loan yet again.
