Reader's Voice: 'I Thought I Was The Only One Who Thought Tlolane Should Join Pirates'



Chippa United left-back Tebogo Tlolane has been heavily linked with a move to Orlando Pirates. The two clubs have enjoyed a positive business relationship over the years, and the Buccaneers are said to be impressed with Tlolane's work rate and are eager to sign him. However, not all fans share Pirates' eagerness and excitement around the player and the potential move.

Pirates have signed numerous players from the Chilli Boys over the years, including the likes of Paseka Mako, Abel Mabaso and Thamsanqa Sangweni. Bucs forward Thembinkosi Lorch was also on loan at the club.

Osnathi seems to have a negative perception of the relationship the two clubs share. The Soccer Laduma reader says that players signed from Chippa fail to make a positive impact at Pirates, and that it's time the club spends more money on players:

"This thing of Pirates and Chippa is good and bad at the same time. It's annoying because most players coming from Chippa are ineffective. They're not helping Pirates, no bigger impact. Pirates should stop getting average players for cheap. It's time for Pirates to spend big money on good, high-quality players to help the club win trophies."

Shakespear 10 also agrees with Osnathi, and added that:

"Osnathi, I agree with you, my brother. These Chippa United players don't live up to expectations."

Not all fans are unhappy about the player being linked with Pirates, though. Soccer Laduma reader Amanjinji showed interest in the player joining the club:

"Welcome home, boy. Up the Bucs!"

Likewise, Minenklerh Mbatha seems excited about the potential signing:

"This is a good player. I need him. Bengithi ngimbona ngedwa ukuthi uyadlala lomfana akeze kubhakaniya [I thought I was the only one who thought he should join the Buccaneers]. I love him!"
