PSL : Khoza wants Mhlongo back at Pirates
Speculation is that Orlando Pirates Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza made a call to Chippa United to recall Brighton Mhlongo to Chippa United
Its understood that Khoza didn’t authorised the deal as he was out the country when it was made.
Its said the keeper will now remain with Pirates and the Chilli Boys may be offered either Jackson Mabokgwane or Siyabonga Mpontshane instead.
Its believed Irvin Khoza called Chippa United Manager and gave him a piece of his mind and expressed his unhappiness about the whole matter
Its said that Pirates Chairman Khoza is unhappy with how Chippa Chairman Siviwe Mpengesi handles affairs by running to the media announce deals when they have not been sealed
Mpengesi broke the news on the SABC radio station, Umhlobo Wenene on Sunday afternoon(18/07/2017) and it was immediately denied by the players agent.
Amazulu have asked Pirates about Mhlongo as well if he could be loaned to them or any of the other remaining keepers
Mhlongo agent Mike Makaab who early denied that the player has left Orlando Pirates to join Chippa United took to tweeter to clarify the matter
@MikeMakaab ” My last word on Brington Mhlongo – he’ll play for Chippa United this season. please guys, let this matter now rest. No more answers from me”
Its also understood that the goalie was in Camp in Durban with Chippa United yesterday.
It remains to be seen how this will impact and affect the Player himself and Chippa United
