Arrows And Chippa Show Interest In Pirates Defender

Sandile Mthethwa, a defender for Orlando Pirates, is desired on loan by both Golden Arrows and Chippa United, according to information obtained by iDiski Times.

Since joining Pirates from KZN Academy six years ago, Mthethwa, who is now 25 years old, has yet to begin an official match.

He has received two loans from Pirates to Richards Bay and four from Chippa, including two in the last two seasons.

However, Pirates decided to keep him this year despite the long-serving defender and captain Happy Jele leaving at the end of the previous campaign.

However, despite using three defenders at the back, including captain Innocent Maela, Olisa Ndah, and Nkosinathi Sibisi, who joined from Arrows in the offseason, he has still had trouble playing.

In the off-season, Pirates also acquired Thapelo Xoki from AmaZulu, making it difficult for Mthethwa to be given a chance to play.

Nevertheless, Mthethwa appeared composed in the Carling Black Label last month, appearing in both matches against Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns despite not having officially played for Pirates.

As Pirates have strong ties to Chippa and Arrows, it will be intriguing to see where Mthethwa decides to go.

The Durban-based team is under extreme stress as a result of Sibisi’s lack of replacement at the start of the season, but Arrows are in more of a critical situation.

They dropped to the bottom of the table after their opening two games of the season due to losses, but they have since climbed the standings. Scelokuhle Hlatshwayo has been acquired by Abafana Bes’Thende from Marumo Gallants.

Since Daine Klate left in September to be replaced by Morgan Mammila, Chippa has also improved. With 18 points after 13 games, the Eastern Cape-based club is currently in the top six, just two points ahead of Arrows in eighth place.
