Orlando Pirates has underwent a major rebuilding phase since their last double treble exploits during the early 2010s. The Buccaneers have seen huge change from the players to the coaching staff over years all in search of the glory days. It seems like they have found their winning combination after German technician Josef Zinnbauer led the club to first trophy in 6 years by lifting the MTN 8 trophy in December 2020.

The Buccaneers will continue with their next challenge when they face off against a Glad Africa Championship side in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday afternoon. Uthongathi FC is currently 6th in the log and they have a memorable former Bucs man on their squad. Many will remember this star for his uncanny resemblence to the late Raggae star Bob Marley.

Affectionately known as the 'Guitar Man' Issa Sarr will make a return into the ground he once called home as a player for Uthongathi FC. The Nedbank Cup has become notorious for providing upsets over the years, however only time will tell if the 2nd tier outfit can pull it off against an inconsistent Orlando Pirates.

Issa Sarr was part of the Orlando Pirates squad that were lashed 6-0 and 6-1 by Mamelodi Sundowns and Supersport United respectively during a disastrous season in 2017. He was then released by Orlando Pirates in 2018 alongside a number of players like Mpho Makola, Oupa Manyisa, Ayanda Gcaba and more. He was then scooped up by Uthongathi in 2019 where he has been playing up until the present moment.

On paper Orlando Pirates should easily win this game, however football has proven time and time again to be unpredictable especially when it comes to the Nedbank Cup. One thing for sure is that Issa Sarr will definitely have a point to prove against his former side. Many will argue that he had some unfinished business at the Orlando Stadium.

The game will definitely be one to watch over the weekend as Orlando Pirates will look join the likes of Mamlambo Sundowns, Polokwane City Rovers, Maritzburg United and Pretoria Callies in the last 16. All eues will be on Josef Zinnbauer and his men after a disappointing last game against Golden Arrows, there maim thing on the players will be to redeem themselves and get back to winning ways.
