Changes are happening by the day at Orlando Pirates. It all started with the acquisition of a new coach; from there it has progressed to a massive amount of players being bought and a few being released, sold, or loaned out. Among the biggest changes is the sale of Menzi Masuku to Chippa United.
Many supporters have expressed concern at the release of Masuku. He was a young, exciting player many believe a future Orlando Pirates squad could have been built around.
"Pirates will regret letting Masuku go. They did the same with Twala, who is now at Chiefs. Masuku is a national team asset, but at Pirates he is deemed useless. Tinkler wasted this boy and I blame him for this. The whole thing is a joke. I wish Menzi good luck for his future endeavours." – Jamib
"As much as I like Menzi Masuku as a footballer, I would have loved to have seen him stay and fight for a starting position… But it's football, sometimes one has to make decisions that are good for your football career. I just hope he's going to get some much-needed game time where he is going." – Ltmashamba aka Big T
Will Pirates regret letting Masuku go? Are there other players who should have stayed?
