Orlando Pirates have had a number of their players struggle for game time in the first half of the season for various reasons.
And these players may be tempted to seek game time elsewhere before the closing of the January transfer window.
But with Covid-19 still with us, clubs such as Pirates would be reluctant to release any of their players more so because of the CAF Confederation Cup group stages that’s on the horizon.
WHO ARE THE PIRATES PLAYERS THAT NEED GAME TIME?
Ndlovu has been with Pirates for years now following his move from Maritzburg United in 2019 but things haven’t gone according to plan.
A lot was expected when Ndlovu first arrived at Pirates, and he put in some solid shifts in different positions for the Buccaneers in his first two seasons.
However, the 25-year-old continues to struggle for game time as he’s sitting on five appearances so far this season.
Overall, Ndlovu has made 58 official appearances for Pirates since his move two-and-a-half years ago.
At 24, Sam should be enjoying the best years of his football career but that has been the case, and it has been like that since his move from Bloemfontein Celtic.
Sam has been reduced to just seven appearances in all competitions thus far, and that’s because he’s further down the pecking order.
Innocent Maela and Paseka Mako appeared to have stamped their authority at the left-back position, and thus leaving Sam out in the cold.
Zungu’s move to Pirates got so many fans excited but there is very little to show for it as he’s often out in the stands.
Zungu, 25, has found the going tough in that Pirates midfield with just two appearances to his name so far thus season.
The likes of Ben Motshwari and Goodman Mosele have been in and out of the team, but they have done better than Zungu in the eyes of the Pirates technical team.
