Orlando Pirates may regret loaning out Radiopane

Surprising things keep on happening in the South African football as unexpected transfers and loan deals continue to be the order of the day just as we've seen at Orlando Pirates when thru loaned out one of their promising young strikrrs, Boitumelo Radiopane. The 19 year old striker was first promoted at the beginning of last season to the first team, but he was not given enough opportunities to showcase himself as he was only given 4 appearances at the DStv Premiership.

When opportunities faded for the 19 year old at the first team he was then deployed to the MDC team (development side) whereby he became the best player and was also crowned as the MDC top goalscorer. After his performances at the MDC team, many belived that perhaps the clubs technical team was going to promote him to the first team, but instead of doing so they decided to loan him to a National First Division (NFD) team Cape Town Spurs.

Could this be a wise decision made by the buccaneers? A former player Andries Sebola believes that Orlando Pirates may regret loaning out Boitumelo Radiopane, especially considering the fact that they also loaned out one of their best attcakers in Tshegofatso Mabasa to Sekhukhune United, they are now left with the injury prone Zakhele Lepasa, who has been in am out of emergency rooms for the past two seasons or so.

Sebola is confused about what might have conviced the club management to loan out the youngster, the former player insist that Radiopane is thr type of a player that they should keep and use for themselves and not for other teams. Andries Sebola is also concerned about the Ghanaian striker Kwame Peprah whether he has what it takes to help Orlando Pirates on their attacking front.
