season and recently told reporters that he might have been a Chiefs player
“It’s something that could have happened, but I think by the time Chiefs put in an offer, I was almost a Pirates player,” Phungwayo says.
“Obviously when there’s nothing concrete on the one side, you have to look at where there is something concrete and solid.
“Pirates came up with something solid and we agreed on everything, so I didn’t see any reason why I shouldn’t go and fight for my position at the club.”
The 24-year-old is one of a number of left-backs at Bucs and will fight for his place in the starting line-up with the likes of Lucky Lekgwathi, Thabo Matlaba, Reuben Cloete, Lizu Mjempu and Aubrey Ngoma.
