Pirates Offered a Goalkeeper?

-Pirates At Risk

All eyes were on Pirates towards the end of the season, as many people thought they will finally secure a goalkeeper given the difficulty of finding one in SA.

However, Sundowns stole the show by signing "Bafana" goalkeeper Ronwen Williams.

Pirates did not renew Wayne Sandiland's contract as their goalkeeper. They are now left with 3 goalkeepers namely Kopano Thuntsane, Siyabonga Mpontsane, and Richard Ofori. This is quite risky if you consider that Ofori had a long-term injury last season that kept him out for a long time. Mpontsane is very old.

-Pirates Offered Mabuza

Pirates have not added a goalkeeper for a while now. However, you can't fault them as experience ones, who play regularly are quite a few locally. However one could still fault them as they could look outside the country for goalkeepers

According to a source Allan Mabuza has been offered to the Soweto giant while Wayne Sandilands has taken a position in the club development structure. 

Pirates could be forced to assess Mabuza.

Mabuza has also been linked to Free state stars. However, according to reports, the club has been sold.

This could give the 25-year-old more time to try to impress the Pirates.

-Player's Representative Puts his Trust on Mabuza

Mabuza has made a name for himself during the FNB Varsity football while playing for the University of Johannesburg due to his great performance.

According to the player's representative, Mabuza is a great goalkeeper. He trusts him, He recons Pirates should take a look at him and decide whether he will fit within their Philosophy.

He recons they should at least allow him to train with the team. They won't regret it.

Pirates will lock horns with Swallows over the weekend. Ofori is likely to make the starting eleven.

It will be interesting to finally see the new Pirates coach tactics and how Ofori will be used during the game.
