Orlando Pirates Football Club's highest-paid players include those who may surprise you based on the team's recent results.
There's no denying that Kaizer Chiefs Football Club is the highest-paying club in South Africa. According to The South African, the club presently pays Keagan Dolly R1.4 million a month. Meanwhile, Samir Nurkovic, a Serbian striker, earns R1 million per year, while Khama Billiat makes R833,333 each month.
Yet the Orlando Pirates appear to be following suit, handing out substantial sums to its players on a monthly basis.
The club's star players are Tyson Hlatshwayo, Deon Hotto, and Richard Ofori. However, the real question is: who is the highest-paid player in the game right now? Stay with us, and you'll see what I mean.
1. Dean Hotto
As of right now, he's the highest-paid player in the team, earning almost $1 million annually. He is paid $500,000 a month. R500,000 is a significant sum of money, but following his stellar performance at Bidvest, it was well worth it.
2. Thulani Hlatshwayo
Tyson has established himself as a top center-back in the English Premier League in recent years. Currently, the 30-year-old is making R300,000 per month as a professional soccer player at the club.
3. Richard Ofori
As well as Deon Hotto and Tyson Hlatshwayo, who are currently ranked 1st and 2nd, the 27-year-old South African goalkeeper joined the team in the year 2020. He's thought to be making R300,000 a month also.
4. Happy Jele
The club just extended the deal of the veteran defender. At the club, he earns R200,000 a month.
5. Fortune Makaringe
Having played for both Maritzburg United and The Team Of Choice, the former Maritzburg United midfielder has proven to be a fantastic talent. His salary at the club is estimated at R185,000 per month.
And rest of players earn less than Makaringe, the likes of Pule and Lorch.
