Pirates To Be Boosted By Return Of Star?
After winning their first game of the season, Orlando Pirates may benefit from the return of one of the club's stars for their upcoming match.
Coach Jose Riviero and the team were missing Vincent Pule who has been one of the club's key players in recent seasons, as the Buccaneers defeated Swallows FC 1-0 in their season opener in Orlando over the weekend.
Pule who was injured for the majority of the previous season made a comeback toward the end of the year by playing as a substitute in the CAF Confederation Cup game against Al Ahli Tripoli and it was anticipated that he would be available to play at the beginning of the current season.
However The 30-year-old was noticeably absent from the matchday squad against Swallows after last week's reports of his hijacking. The winger reportedly suffered trauma after being kidnapped on July 31 while driving in Johannesburg.
The Bafana Bafana player, though, appears to have recovered from the incident and is excited to make his long-awaited comeback to the DStv Premiership when the Bucs play Stellenbosch FC in a midweek match.
Before suffering a long-term injury in the first half of the previous season Pule made six league appearances.
The decision to include the former Bidvest Wits player on the traveling team will ultimately be made by Riviero.
