Pirates star close to return to action after a year out injured

If there is one thing that has been a problem at Orlando Pirates Football Club is injuries to attacking players, Thembinkosi Lorch, Tshegofatso Mabasa, Vincent Pule, and Zakhele Lepasa are currently out injured, leaving the club with less to no options when it comes to attacking options.

Among these four stars, the 24-year-old Lepasa is the one who has been out for the longest, he has been out injured for well over a year now after a horrific knee injury.

The former TS Galaxy Football Club star had a promising start to the 2020/2021 season before he got injured, and the club has struggled to find someone to fill his boots, as the likes of Thembinkosi Lorch, Deon Hotto, and Tshegofatso Mabasa were tried in that position and all failed.

It is reported and rumoured that Lepasa is close to returning to action, great news to Pirates fans who have had fears in the past of him being forced to retire.
