The Future of the Orlando Pirates’ Defender Remains Uncertain.
According to the source, ‘his contract will not be renewed.’
Thulani “Tyson” Hlatshwayo’s future with the Orlando Pirates is questionable, according to NMMABUNDA. The central defender joined the Buccaneers from Bidvest Wits, who were disbanding at the time.
He was considered as a solution to the Pirates’ defensive difficulties and was given the captaincy in his first match for the team. His performances, on the other hand, never lived up to the hype, and he quickly became a fan favorite.
He made costly mistakes from which he never seemed to recover, and he has since been banished to the stands. According to one insider, he is on his way out.
“His contract will not be renewed. The club had the option to extend for another year but they have not done so as yet. He has gone down the pecking order and is unlikely to get a chance anytime soon,” said the source.
Pirates signed Olisa Ndah at the start of the current campaign and the Nigerian has formed a good partnership with Happy Jele at the back. If Jele, who is injury prone, is unavailable, Ntsikelelo Nyauza takes his place with Innocent Maela as another option in the centre of defence before Hlatshwayo.
Another source said Hlatshwayo may be sent out to Golden Arrows in a swap deal for Nkosinathi Sibisi.
