THREE ORLANDO PIRATES PLAYERS DISAPPOINT KHANYE IN THE CAFCC

Former Kaizer Chiefs attacker Junior Khanye has named three players that let Orlando Pirates down in last weekend’s CAF Confederation Cup game against Al-Ittihad.

As The South African reported last Sunday evening, Bucs took the daunting trip to Libya to battle the local cup champions.

It was there where Bandile Shandu’s first-half brace was not enough to prevent a 3-2 loss. According to Junior Khanye’s analysis, the result could have been avoided if three Pirates players delivered better performances.

The ex-Kaizer Chiefs star has suggested goalkeeper Siyabonga Mpontshane, Fortune Makaringe, and Thembinkosi Lorch were largely responsible for the defeat. Read the full story here.
