Reports: Orlando Pirates target Chippa United’s teenage sensation

Orlando Pirates could be thinking this might be the new Thembinkosi Lorch. Azola Matrose is impressing at Chippa United and he too is a wide attacker.

But there are some stark differences between Lorch and this kid.

Every season we spot one youngest player that breaks through in the PSL, this term might belong to Matrose. We’re talking about a wide left-footed attacker who is still 19 years old and in grade 11 at Walmer High School, Gqeberha.

The youngster’s performances in the PSL have included 12 appearances as well as the superb goal below:

According to rumours, the mighty Buccaneers have taken notice and are discussing Matrose’s name at their Parktown offices.

“Orlando Pirates have set their sights on one of the most exciting midfielders to emerge in the PSL as a transfer target, the Siya crew has been informed,” Soccer Laduma reported this week.

“Sources close to Chippa management have indicated to the Siya crew that the left-footed attacker is being monitored by the Buccaneers with a view of adding him to the Sea Robbers’ squad next season,” the report added.


Orlando Pirates and Gabadinho Mhango are reportedly reaching the end of the road together. The 29-year-old revealed the news to a Malawian publication this week.

According to the report, Mhango and his agent, the prominent Mike Makaab, had a meeting with Bucs regarding his limited game-time since the arrival of Mandla Ncikazi as the co-coach this season.

The meeting was where the player and club agreed to part ways at the end of this current season.
