Khosi Nation Discusses Ovono The Buccaneer

Orlando Pirates have had an emotional pre-season with many points of concern. However, one bright moment has come in the form of their pre-season Maize Cup victory over Platinum Stars, and an unlikely hero saved them.

Felipe Ovono was the hero of the evening with two penalty saves. This is made more interesting by the fact that he was, very recently, placed on the transfer list at Orlando Pirates. They have since backtracked on their decision, and it has been a welcomed move.

Many people saw it as nothing short of pure madness when Pirates considered releasing the goalkeeper from Equatorial Guinea. In fact, it was such an unexpected move that it even got the Khosi Nation talking about Buccaneer matters.

“I’m a Khosi fan but I believe this guy deserves another chance am not sure pirates number 1 is as good as this guy am not yet convinced” – Sneezy B

“I’m a Khosifan but I was soo heartbroken to see the Buccaneer listing Ovono on the transfer list. He is far better than most keepers we have in the country. Like Mpontshane and Mhlongo, Khuzwayo and the Ronwen Williams. And at bucs, He is the best keeper they have. He is better than the 3 keepers in Bucs. He should be preferred better than all of them.” – Julius_Mosehla

 “I am a Khosination ...but I couldn't understand OPFC decision to sell OVONO when they place him on the transfer list, He s a great goalie and marvelous to watch, He's an international goal minder, remember...am glad Bucs reversed their poor poor decision.” - navegate

Do you think Ovono is the best keeper at Pirates?
