Pirates Tracking Baroka Young Striker

Orlando Pirates are keeping a close eye on Baroka’s young striker, Boy Madingwana. The player might be signed by the Soweto giants in this transfer window and loaned back.

Madingwana was a key player for Baroka last season, as the Limpopo side finished second in the Motsepe Foundation Championship table under suspended coach Dan Malesela.

He played every minute during Baroka’s four matches in the PSL promotion/relegation playoffs, which they lost in the final match to Richards Bay on Wednesday. Richards Bay retained their DStv Premiership status with the win.

Madingwana’s performances have caught the attention of the Soweto giants, who are strengthening their squad for next season.

Pirates, who achieved a historic second consecutive double last season, have done frequent business with Baroka in the past. They have signed Thabiso Kutumela, Collins Makgaka, Marshall Munetsi, Donald Mokondelela, Gift Motupa, and Evidence Makgopa from Baroka.

Makgopa was signed by Pirates ahead of the 2021/22 season but spent that season on loan before joining them at the beginning of the 2022/23 season. This followed Baroka’s relegation to the Motsepe Foundation Championship. Pirates might implement a similar strategy with Madingwana.

Pirates have already announced the departures of Kermit Erasmus, Thabang Monare, Richard Ofori, Siyabonga Mpontshane, and Fortune Makaringe in the past couple of weeks.

In the coming days, they are expected to officially announce the signings of Thalente Mbatha and Kegan Johannes from SuperSport United. Reports also suggest that they have signed Selaelo Rasebotja, another player from SuperSport.
