Daine Klate leaves Pirates
Orlando Pirates have confirmed that midfielder, Daine Klate, will be moving back to SuperSport United after playing for the Buccaneers for five years.
“A winner of five league titles - two of while with us; Daine is an icon in his own right,” Orlando Pirates Chairman, Irvin Khoza said on the clubs official website.
“He was a team player, a true ambassador of the game. With us he also became a double treble winner and a CAF Champions League runner-up.”
“He will forever be remembered at Pirates for his contribution.”
“When we induct players in the future, he will be used as a reference point alongside other distinguished gentlemen such as Kaizer Motaung and Jomo Sono – players who represented this club with discipline and dedication,” he added.
The club also announced the signing of right-back, Mpho Mvelase from Chippa United.
“I am delighted to have made my move to Orlando Pirates. This is an opportunity I will grab with both hands, and make the best of it," Mvelase said.
He will be joining goalkeeper, Siyabonga Mpontshane and defender, Tshepo Gumede, who both signed with the Pirates from the Platinum Stars earlier this week.
