PSL : Orlando Pirates remove players from CBL Squad
Orlando Pirates trim down their CBL squad.
The Carling Black Label is a season pre-season tournament that is played between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chief.
Supporters get a chance to choose their starting line up and one lucky supporter is giving an opportunity to be coach of the day
The pre-season tournament runs at the time that the transfer window is open and players from both teams come and go
Orlando Pirates have been the busiest team in the transfer window and have so far brought four personnel from the former PSL Free State Stars.
In a surprise move, Orlando Pirates have removed some key players from their CBL squad, namely : Felipe Ovono, Siyabonga Mpontshane, Rooi Mahamutsa, Sfiso Myeni, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Thandani “Bibo” Ntshumayelo and Lehlohonolo ” Viera” Masalesa
Some of the above players were not included in the squad that headed to the preseason camp.
Siyabonga Mpontshane was reported that he could be heading to Highlands Park but he was not part of the twelve players unveiled.
Sfiso Myeni could be heading to Moroka Swallows
Ajax Cape Town and Cape Town City are also interested in acquiring Myeni and Masalesa
While Bidvest Wits are chasing Thandani “Bibo” Ntshumayelo
Could the trimming down be an indication that the players will be released by the Mighty Bucs?
