Orlando Pirates appointed a new club captain

Orlando Pirates chose a new captain to lead the team.


After longtime defender Happy Jele's unexpected departure, Orlando Pirates have named a new captain. It has been officially announced that Innocent Maela will lead the Buccaneers as their captain beginning with the 2022–2023 season, which kicks off next week. 


The Bafana Bafana defender's selection and the vice-captaincy of goalie Richard Ofori were announced on the club's official website. 


Before the 2022–23 season begins, "Orlando Pirates Football Club can confirm the selection of a new captain and vice captain. 


Since Paseka Mako are Left Backs, their position will be negatively impacted because the coach will be required to always open the game with the captain at the helm. As captain of the Orlando Pirates, Maela has Ofori as his second in command. 

Many have put up their hands to be included, but the team has ignored them. Jele's interest in playing hasn't waned. Sundowns' success can be attributed to the widespread presence of their alums across the roster. 


Scientist Irvin Khoza If Khoza really cares about maintaining cohesion in the squad, he should fire Screamer and Floyd and put the ghost legends in charge of the technical staff.
