Ngobeni waiting on Pirates
Orlando Pirates midfielder Clifford Ngobeni remains unsure about his future with The Buccaneers.
25-year-old Bafana Bafana international is back at Mayfair after a six-month
loan at Lamontville Golden Arrows but looks well down the pecking order for
starting places in the centre of midfield with Andile Jali, Oupa Manyisa, Onyekachi
Okonkwo and possibly Thandani Ntshumayelo all ahead of him.
Add to that too the likes of new signings Thabo Rakhale, Manti Moholo, Mpho Makola, Aubrey Ngoma and Khethowakhe Masuku all able to operate in the centre if needs be.
Ngobeni’s agent, Rob Moore, says they are still waiting to hear from the club as to their intentions for the player.
“The situation is not ideal at Pirates because they have signed so many players, it’s unbelievable,” Moore says. “It is very difficult for us because the club just aren’t communicating what they want to do with Clifford, whether they will use him or let him look at opportunities elsewhere.
“The player is obviously keen to get his future sorted out as soon as possible, but with Pirates not communicating with us we don’t know where we stand.”
made his PSL debut for Ajax Cape Town in the 2005/06 season and made 76 starts
for the club before leaving for Pirates in June 2010.
He found opportunities limited with Jali, Manyisa and Isaac Chansa all preferred ahead of him and so was reunited with former Ajax boss Muhsin Ertugral at Golden Arrows for the second half of last season, where he made 11 starts.
