The quartet will be part of the Pirates' pre-season preparations, which began last week. The club also recently confirmed the signing of another defender, 27-year-old Tapelo Xoki, who joins from AmaZulu. 


Pirates have also secured an agreement with Golden Arrows for the transfer of Nkosinathi Sibisi, and the club released a video to their fan base on Monday.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Pirates made a surprise appointment of José Riveiro as head coach on Saturday. Riveiro, a Spaniard, has signed a three-year contract with the Pirates. 


Riveiro said in a statement that he is thrilled to be joining the club and is looking forward to the challenges ahead. 

"First and foremost, I would like to greet all Orlando Pirates fans." I'm overjoyed to have joined the group. The Pirates project is exciting, and I'm looking forward to what comes next. It is an honor for me and my colleagues to be tasked with coaching such an institution and competing for the highest goals." 


The 46-year-old, a modern, progressive coach with a dynamic, attacking football mentality, will join the club for pre-season after all of his essential documents are processed.
