Dr Irvin Khoza Clears the Air Concern The Ongoing Orlando Pirates Star Rumours?

According to the source, the ongoing rumours linking to the young star's retirement due to injury are false.

The write continued and said Dr Irvin Khoza said: “All the rumors starting Zakhele Lepasa wants to retire are false. Zakes is recovering well and he is now doing specific works in the gym and could return to full training around November/December. He has full of our confidence, and we are also in talks with his agents to renew his contract until 2024.”

With the very important clash against Sundowns this coming weekend, Orlando Pirates are surely getting it all ready to go against the defending champions. Well four games in the league without a defeat was a solid and good record, unfortunately ur undefeated streak in the league perishes on Saturday. 

The Tyson Jele combo will battle with the pace of Sundowns attackers. I would bring in a speedy center back to pair with Jele and avoid overlapping runs by my full backs.

Sundowns will punish you braz if u gonna play "open play" just go there with reinforce defense hope for a draw.

They won't beat us this time.their friend Jooste is on the more free way.they only best us bcoz we were playing Jooste.

Perfect to test those players n see if they are ready for the marathon even the tactical ability of the coaches 

Its gonna be a tough one to watch. But all the best lets hope chiefs supporters wont be on our necks after the match as we do to them when they have lost.

I feel the team spirit and oneness is returning to the team after Lorch exposed divisions.

We need to build from this and be United, infact be a team that we are supposed to be.

Also support those who are currently undergoing challenges, the likes of Ben and Gabadinho. Please don't sit back and defend, that'll cost us the game. Just throw everything you got at them, I'd rather we loose trying unlike loose a game whilst sitting back.

Guys you know ncikazi gave sundowns a hard time when he was still at arrows, the boys just need to listen to his instructions and play as a team..Peprah and mabasa need to start the game I'm sure rhulani won't analyze or anticipate that we have good wingers and two strong target men upfront.

This time around it'll be different the Plumber has left what I know with Coach Mindlos is he likes a very solid backfour which is very important when playing against Bafana ba style the team has improved and the confidence is there Sundowns won't win this time around. 

For this one i hope and pray that Ndah plays alongside Jele and Tyson with Mako and Shandu being more of wingers to strengthen the attack.

The stricking force should engage that new signing being Mabasa's playmaker,then Hotto,Pule and Mosele on our midfield control.

Having watched the last Pirates game against Chippa our midfield is no match for the Sundowns midfield that beat Galaxy. 

Please gents, do whatever it takes to win this game. Sundowns been chowing us for quite some time, and it's about time we turn the tables upside down. Go and make us proud
