Orlando Pirates

The Bucs Star Turning Heads Out In Venda

He may not garner all the attention that some of his high-profile teammates do, but this Orlando Pirates star has been quietly gaining traction as he goes about his business in Venda.

It was in October 2020, when the Siya crew reported that Pirates have promoted five youngsters from the club's development ranks to the first team under then coach Josef Zinnbauer.

Amongst them was tricky midfielder Tshepo Mofokeng.

The 25-year-old spent the whole of last season on loan at Sekhukhune United who managed to gain promotion to the topflight, although he was among the players released by Babina Noko at the end of the campaign as his loan deal came to an end.

Now, with Mofokeng on another loan deal, this time at Venda Football Academy, Siya sources in the know have informed the crew that the skillful midfielder has managed to impress with his performances, with the Bucs technical team believed to be taking note of his performances.

“He has shown that he is a quality player who deserves to play in the PSL. He is one of the best players at Venda Football Academy this year and it is only a matter of time before other clubs come knocking, but Pirates have also been watching him closely,” the source informed the crew.

Mofokeng has made 13 appearances for the GladAfrica Championship rookies this season and has chipped in with a solitary goal.
