Now, in this article we will take a look at the Orlando Pirates players who disappeared or failed to pick themselves up after leaving the Sea robbers.

Over the past years, Orlando Pirates Football Club have not been winning any trophy, apart from the MTN8 Cup which they won last season. Not winning a trophy as a big club simply means there is something wrong and needs to be fixed sooner than later.
