With the transfer window approaching, Orlando Pirates are yet to confirm if one of their international starlets will remain at the club for pre-season preparations.
Zimbabwean midfielder, Marshall Munetsi has enjoyed his most successful season with the Buccaneers since signing with the club. The towering midfielder has made seven league starts and 12 league appearances under Milutin Sredojević where he has shown his immense talents that led to Pirates snapping him up from Ubuntu Cape Town.
Following a loan spell at Baroka FC in the previous season, Munetsi was recalled by Pirates ahead of this season where he has featured in seven games.
“He is a talent and definitely one for the future. The team wants to ensure that he stays playing because he is quality,” revealed a Siya source.
“The club still needs to decide whether he will get the sufficient game time or perhaps another loan deal could be a viable option,” added the source.
Munetsi has provided cover for the likes of Mpho Makola in midfield. The hurling midfielder who is often compared to Yaya Toure has already surpassed the likes of Issa Sarr and Thamsanqa Gabuza when it comes to league appearances.
Should Pirates decide to keep the 21-year-old in Parktown for the new season, then that would be an indication of the potential exit of players such as Sarr and Sangweni, who are rumoured to leave the club due to a lack of game-time.
