Pirates to get another goalkeeper - Vermezovic
Orlando Pirates coach, Vladimir Vermezovic, has said that he will have to sign a new goalkeeper to his team during the January transfer window, in order to replace former goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa.
The former Pirates and Bafana Bafana captain, was shot and killed in a botched robbery, whilst visiting his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo, in Vosloorus on the East Rand on the 26th of October.
"We need to have three goalkeepers,” Vermezovic said, adding that he wants to hire a ‘shot stopper’ to compliment exisiting goalkeepers, Brighton Mhlongo and Philani Zikalala.
“If something happens, like when someone gets a red card or gets suspended, then we need to have another goalkeeper.Unfortunately we could not sign a goalkeeper after the tragedy of Meyiwa. We will try to bring in another goalkeeper so that department can be more competitive."
Reports have shown that the Buccaneers coach has his eyes set on Platinum Stars keeper, Siyabonga Mpontshane, but was vague when asked directly.
"I don't know anything,” Vermezovic said.
