Orlando Pirates is known as one great team. They were the first team in their history who won three major trophies in their history. But they didn’t start this season so good. If we look at PSL results, we can see that they are in the 10th position on the table.
It is obvious that they didn’t start this season like they want to. They can’t be satisfied with only one win until now. But they have some changes in the team, and for sure injuries didn’t help. Currently, the are without key first-team squad members and this is a huge problem for them.
Orlando Pirates injures
Especially if we look at Orlando Pirates news August was a hard month them. They are currently without key first-team players. Ben Motshwari, Vincent Pule, and Luvuyo Memela are injured. After they finished the last season in the second place, they have the opportunity to compete in MTN8 and CAF Champions Leauge, but lose in the first round. Not to mention that they have problems in PSL.
For sure, something is happening. But, the main question is what? They change the coach, after the sudden and dramatic departure of former coach Milutin Sredojevic. Maybe this is the reason? We can’t be sure. But still, it’s hard to play when you are without a couple of main players in your team.
Luckily they have a long break and this could give them enough time to sort out all their injures until the next match. Even Orlando Pirates announced that they will be in the position to declare some, or even all players, medically cleared and ready to start training with the rest of the team.
Orlando Pirates’ latest news says that Motshwari is back on track. He is being integrated back into the team’s training. Pule is currently in rehabilitation and will be reassessed next week. And Memela is in the final stage of rehabilitation. There is some expectation that he will return to the team next week.
