Motshwari made his appearance in front of the Buccaneers supporters at Orlando Stadium over the weekend following his move from Bidvest Wits at the end of last season.

The versatile player enjoyed the full 120 minutes of their MTN8 quarter-final against SuperSport United following their disappointing 4-3 defeat on penalties.

However, four years ago, the Students introduced Motshwari to the PSL at the age of 23, following his move from ABC Motsepe League outfit Trabzon.

Motshwari says he will forever be grateful to the Clever Boys for showing faith in him back in 2014 and giving him his first opportunity in the professional ranks.

‘This is a team that groomed me to be the kind of player that I am today and for that reason they will always have a special place in my heart,’ Motshwari told his club’s official website.

‘However, I am a professional and understand that I have a job to do for Pirates and put my emotions aside.

‘At the end of the day, it’s not about me, the bigger picture here is Pirates and getting the job done over Wits in the league.’
