Pirates Set For New Technical Team Addition

Orlando Pirates are set to conclude a deal for TS Galaxy analyst Ncwadi Saki ahead of the new season.

Pirates have been active to improve their squad and technical team in recent weeks with the club already announcing the arrival of Angola star Gilberto from Petro de Luanda.

Kermit Erasmus, Thabang Monare, Fortune Makaringe, Richard Ofori, Souaibou Marou, and Siyanbonga Mpontshane have all been released, while Thalante Mbatha, Selaelo Rasebotja are among the deals also concluded after returning for pre-season.

When the squad returned to Rand Stadium this week, new analyst Devon O’Brien was spotted among the squad, as reported by this website he would join the Buccaneers.

It’s been confirmed to iDiski Times that Ncwadi Saki is the next to bolster their backroom staff as video analyst, as he’s said to have agreed terms for a move away from the Rockets.

Saki has been one of the rising stars and unsung heroes in Sead Ramovic’s technical team that has made major strides over the past two seasons.

He looks set to join Rayaan Jacobs, Taariq Yaghya and O’Brien in an impressive analysis team built for head coach Jose Riveiro next season.
