Tshegofatso Mabasa is set stay at Orlando Pirates longer than expected

At Orlando Pirates they have been looking for a top class striker for about a while now but then again they also have four top class strikers that they can count on already despite being in desparate need to so

The Searobbers are fortunate enough to have the likes of Tshegofatso Mabasa, Zakhele Lepasa, Gabadinho Mhango, Kwame Peprah which totals up to about four strikers in total which would be a blessing for any club

Although unfortunately enough not all of those strikers have been either injured or at the same time firing blanks and have not been in good form at all which is why the Bucs have been struggling this season

And it is rather a very strange situation that a club that has four strikers is not even able to at least get two of them in consistent form as the Bucs are a team that should be challenging for trophies and need all of their top strikers in good form to do so

But this season Orlando Pirates have had to find other sources of goals from the wingers, midfielders, and defenders who have all chipped in with a goal then and there for the Bucs as they comfortably sit second in the DSTV Premiership

Although that kind of position is not so safe considering that Kaizer Chiefs have three games in hand over Orlando Pirates and if they win all three of them they will be way ahead of the Bucs which is a situation they probably do not want

And in terms of the Bucs struggling with strikers one of them in the form for Tshegofatso Mabasa who on his day can really make a difference but is rather inconsistent for a player of his quality as he has been selected for the national team on numerous occasions

And as a result of his impressive performances for Orlando Pirates then and there Tshegofatso Mabasa has earned himself a new contract which has been extended by two years considering he was initially signed for three years if sources close to the situation are true and accurate

"Orlando Pirates have exercised their option on the contract of striker Tshegofatso Mabasa keeping the burly marksman at the club beyond the current season,"

"Tshegofatso Mabasa is going nowhere as Pirates have taken their option on his contract,"
