When Richard Ofori made a move from Maritzburg United to Orlando Pirates last season, there was hope that he would be their number one goalkeeper. But his recent mistakes has proved otherwise and the club is contemplating to bring another goalkeeper on board. It is believed that the Buccaneers could re-visit their interest for a talented Premier Soccer League goalkeeper Sifiso Mlungwana.
According to Soccer Laduma sources, there is some concerns hovering over the Buccaneers goalkeeping department. The Buccaneers were heavily linked with the 24-year-old Mlungwana at the end of last season. However, after signing Mlungwana’s former teammate, Ntsako Makhubela, they had no joy in their attempts to lure him to the club.
Mlungwana was a key player for Golden Arrows last season. His wonderful performance was recognised at the national level, with Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos having included him in his provisional 34-man squad for the back-to-back 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia in October.
With Ofori currently struggling with injuries, the Buccaneers are believed to be concerned about their goalkeeping department and the indications are that they want to reinforce with another quality goalkeeper, either in January or at the end of the season.
