Orlando Pirates confirmed a number of moves on Monday evening, revealing six players who will depart the club while also announcing the arrival of Bafana Bafana striker Evidence Makgopa alongside three others.
The Sea Robbers may have made it to the Caf Confederation Cup final last season, but their failure to challenge Mamelodi Sundowns, who won a second domestic treble in three seasons, became the main takeaway as it was clear the Buccaneers needed changes.
The club have been quick to make those changes, announcing the departures of co-coach Fadlu Davids and former Bafana Bafana skipper Thulani Hlatshwayo last week.
The changes didn’t stop there as the club looked to yet again refresh in the transfer market.
In a statement released on Monday night, the Soweto giants ended speculation by announcing the arrival of Makgopa, who they have been linked to for some time, alongside Bienvenu Eva Nga, Miguel Timm and Azola Matrose.
