Orlando Pirates latest acquisition: Another SuperSport star wanted!

Orlando Pirates’ latest acquisition is midfielder Selaelo Rasebotja, a SuperSport United player, according to SABC Sport. He will join the Soweto giants on a free transfer.

Despite his promising talent, he played a bit-part role at the Tshwane side. However, with Rasebotja’s contract set to expire at the end of this month. Pirates have acted swiftly to bolster coach Jose Riveiro’s squad.

Orlando Pirates acquisition Rasebotja’s 16 appearances this season, particularly in the CAF Confederation Cup, showcase his growing prowess. His maiden goal against Al-Hilal Benghazi in December underscores his potential contribution to Pirates’ upcoming campaigns.

In another twist, rising star Shandre Campbell from SuperSport United is on the verge of a potential move abroad. With Belgian giants Club Brugge expressing a keen interest.
