Pirates Sign Nine Players
Orlando Pirates have signalled their intent for the 2018-2019 season by signing a total of nine players.
The Soweto confirmed all their nine signings on the club’s official website, including Vincent Pule, who reportedly signed a pre-contract with Kaizer Chiefs a few months ago.
“Orlando Pirates Football Club is delighted to announce the signings of Brilliant Khuzwayo, Vincent Pule, Ben Motshwari, Meshack Maphangule, Asavela Mbekile, Linda Mntambo, Abel Mabaso, Paseka Mako and Kudakwashe Mahachi.
“More details on the signings will be made available closer to the start of pre-season. The nine players will join the rest of the squad when the team returns for pre-season training on June 18.
“Strengthening of the squad has been the number one priority for the administrative office in anticipation of a gruelling season which will see the Club competing in five competitions, including the CAF Champions League, which starts in November.
“The Absa Premiership is expected to start on the weekend of the 3-5th August 2018,” Pirates confirmed on the club’s official website.
