Orlando Pirates is one of the best teams in South African football, and here we look at the most valuable players.
It's clear that the Buccaneers have an incredible amount of talent, and take a look at the five most expensive players in their squad as calculated by Transfermarkt.
5. SIPHESIHLE NDLOVU, MIDFIELDER: R13 MILLION
Siphesihle Ndlovu joined Orlando Pirates from Maritzburg United for R13.5 million at the start of the season.
He is not fully at the club yet, but remains one of the five most expensive players in the latest estimates. The diminutive player from Pietermaritzburg has only played eight PSL games this season, but has played 82 minutes against the Panthers and could be in Zimbabwe's plans before half time.
4. FORTUNE MAKARINGE, MIDFIELDER: R13.7 MILLION
The attacking midfielder joined Pirates as the Pirates doubled their selection in the off-season. Gangsters spent over Sh25 million to bring Fortune Makaringe and Ndlovo to Soweto.
But Makaringe has been more successful than Ndlovo, making 18 league appearances and finding himself a regular under Mokwina and Zimbwere.
According to Independent Speculations, his value has been declining since joining the Buccaneers, and his career seems to be on the rise.
3. VINCENT PULE, WINGER - R14.5 MILLION
Winger Vincent Pule remains one of the highest-rated players on the books of the Orlando Pirates.
He has only played twice for Bafana Bafana but he is a creative force at Pirates, and he needs a fat man to jump at the Orlando Stadium.
2. INNOCENT MAELA, FULLBACK R16 MILLION
Perhaps the most valuable defender in South African football, his stock has soared since joining the club in 2017 and making his mark on the NFD. Maela is expected to be a key part of Bafana coach Molefi Nseki's dream of winning major tournaments in the coming years.
