Pirates return to training ahead of new season

Orlando Pirates returned to training on June 28 to begin preparations for the 2024-25 season, and one player that stood out in the team’s short clip on social media was Boitumelo Radiopane, who spent last season on loan at Cape Town Spurs, where he played nine matches. 

The highly-rated 21-year-old is expected to be a part of the Buccaneers squad that will travel to Spain for a pre-season tour next month, where they will face Championship outfit Plymouth Argyle, La Liga giants Sevilla, and Qatar Stars League side Al Sadd.

Pirates new signings

Last week, Pirates announced the departure of six first-team players, including former Bafana Bafana striker Kermit Erasmus, just days before confirming the signing of Delvi Miguel Vieira, better known as Gilberto, from Angolan giants Petro du Luanda.
