How Orlando Pirates nabbed Siphesihle Ndlovu

Ndlovu was expected to turn up at Chloorkop, in the colours of Sundowns, after the nine-time league champions agreed a deal in principle with Maritzburg at the start of the 2018/19 season.

As confirmed by club chairman Farook Kadodia, the player was meant to spend the past season at the KwaZulu-Natal outfit before departing in the upcoming transfer window.

However, it was not to be, with Pirates swooping in with an offer, which enticed the player into signing with them instead.

Ndlovu told KickOff that he had never signed with the Tshwane giants.

“First of all, I made the decision to join the black and white on my own. I’ve never signed with Sundowns,” he told the publication.

“Pirates brought an offer to the team, and then the team sat me down and we talked about it. Ja obviously, I’ve been always willing to play for the black and white, but then when the offer arrived, I could see this is where I could fit in.”
