Some are out of favour, others will shortly see their contracts expire, while some may be looking for a new challenge, so there could be numerous Orlando Pirates exits this year.

The Buccaneers, as things stand, are currently riding high in the Absa Premiership as they continue to mount a title challenge, with Milutin Sredojevic’s side second on the log and still in with a good chance of lifting the title.

Currently, the club has over 16 first team players who have played in the league this season but made less than 10 appearances as ‘Micho’ looks to rotate a number of them, and with some contracts expiring at the end of the campaign, it is likely that some of this seasons Buccaneers will not be donning the black jersey in 2019/20.

So who could be on their way out?

Out Of Favour…

The likes of Abel Mabaso, Meshack Maphangule and Mthokozisi Dube have all seen very limited game-time so far this season – playing less than five league games so far – while there are others such as Justice Chabalala who haven’t featured at all after falling out of favour under the current technical team.

There are also players such as Diamond Thopola and Thabo Matlaba who don’t seem to have an immediate future with the club, though it remains to be seen whether exits – either permanent or on loan – could materialise in the next transfer window.

Out Of Contract…

It is known that Pirates do have a handful of players that will currently be out of contract, come the end of the current campaign, though Pirates are likely to only lose them if they are players that they don’t want as a part of their plans going forward.

Club captain, Happy Jele, is one player who is yet to sign a new deal, however, he is expected to finalise a new contract at some point due to his status as a legend in Parktown. With Jackson Mabokgwane and Abbubaker Mobara though, there is a chance that they may be donning new colours next season.

The Others…

Marshall Munetsi may have been persuaded to stay recently, but potential suitors may come calling again at the end of the season after he seemingly attracted interest from outside the country, while younger players such as Augustine Mahlonoko may be sent out on loan in search of more experience playing senior football before returning to try and break into Pirates’ starting XI.

The same sort of move could also be on the cards for young Caio Marcelo, who may need more time to acclimatise to South African football, having come over from Brazil last year.

Dr Khoza must first sort out his clueless tecnical team before considering players. Happy Jele should stay and retire at Pirates. He had served the team more than a decade now though he cost us many games at centre back.
