Orlando Pirates recently announced the signing of Nigerian striker Christian Obiozor, but it has since been revealed that the player is expected to return to his club, Enyimba, as the deal is not finalised as yet. The player's transfer fee has not been agreed upon between the two sides, and Pirates fans might not get a chance to see the player don the famous black and white kit.
It is Thursday, and Supporters Club throws back. This coming weekend, the MTN8 will spring to action, so today we take you down the memory lane to the 2011 MTN 8 final between the two Soweto giants, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
One Kaizer Chiefs supporter has expressed his desire for his team to sign Siphelele Ntshangase. It appears he's not the only one who wants to see Ntshangase at Naturena, judging by the reactions of fellow supporters to his stance. Here's what he wrote:
On Saturday, Kaizer Chiefs will do battle against SuperSport United in the MTN8. Amakhosi have had a fairly good run during their pre-season games and will be looking to continue that form as they face off against Eric Tinkler, who is new in the Matsatsantsa set-up. However, United will have their guards up as the players will want to impress their new head coach.
Today marks exactly 14 years since the late Phuti Lesley "Slow Poison" Manyathela (4 September 1981 – 9 August 2003) passed away. The lanky Orlando Pirates striker was only 21 years old when he tragically lost his life in a car accident close to his hometown of Musina in the Limpopo province.
There's been a lot of hype around Oupa Manyisa's move from Orlando Pirates to Mamelodi Sundowns. Ace's move is the biggest of the current transfer window thus far. He penned a three-year deal with the African champions.
