Red-hot Orlando Pirates star wanted in Europe, again.


Orlando Pirates star Patrick Maswanganyi is a hot commodity.


According to Soccer-Laduma, a top-flight Belgian club is keen on signing in-form Maswanganyi. The 25-year-old was recently included in Bafana’s squad for friendlies against Andorra and Algeria.

“I think it’s not the first time they have shown interest. They have been following his (Maswanganyi) progress since last season when he was at SuperSport United, but they were not sure because he had just come back from Europe as well. But since he joined Pirates, this club in Belgium had been talking to his representatives who sent him to Portugal before and now it’s looking promising. “I know there are other teams in other countries looking at him, and the Belgium team representative was (present) at the FNB Stadium during the Soweto Derby and they are happy with what they saw.” Said the source.

“I think the team in Belgium that is interested in him have also looked at his experience in Europe and looking at his age. He is only 25 years old and spent two to three years in Portugal. They feel that will help him settle well if he moves to Belgium. I can’t say the club in Belgium at the moment because it would jeopardize everything and that wouldn’t be good,” concluded the source.


24-year-old Sekhukhune United winger Elias Mokwana has shone this season with four goals and three assists in 15 league appearances. He’s in the latest Bafana squad for friendlies against Algeria and Andorra. Mokwana arrived at Babina Noko from Motsepe Foundation Championship side Platinum City Rovers in 2022. He was also on the Afcon standby list. According to The Citizen, Mokwana has always admired Chiefs. However, he has admitted to having a soft spot for Pirates as well.

According to the source, the wide attacker has always been an admirer of Chiefs, though he has a soft spot for Pirates. Right now, Chiefs are favourites if the Glamour Boys table a satisfactory offer to the player, whose desire is to be a regular starter for his country.
