Orlando Pirates have groomed many young stars in the past, but there hasn't been a lot of academy products breaking into the first team and remaining in the team.
Richardo Lourenco was the captain of the reserve side , he played in the Multi diski challenge and was eventually promoted to the Bucs first team. But he never really got his opportunity in the first team set up, he ended up in Botswana playing for Jwaneng Galaxy.
Lourenco has been forced to return to Mzansi due to the league in Bostwana being shut for up to 6 months, he is expected to join Chippa United. The player has a lot of experience having spent time in Europe and is a Bidvest wits academy graduate.
Many Bucs were upset when this young talent was let go by Orlando Pirates, as he was one of the most outstanding performers in the reserve side at the time. The player has always been associated with great things and is believed to be the next Bafana Bafana star.
