A source in the Orlando Pirates camp has informed Phakaaathi of a squabble between the Buccaneers players following the club's 6-0 hammering by Mamelodi Sundowns this past weekend.

According to the source, divisions in the club are one of the major reasons the team are struggling to get positive results, despite the technical team’s effort to try and bring the players together.

“It was really bad and the players started to blame each other after that game. There is a certain group of senior players which does not get along with the others, while the new players have to take sides. We hope they have realised how bad the situation is and that they will try to resolve their issues,” said the source.
