A source close to Memela has told Phakaaathi Plus that he has been made aware of the pending move and he is eager and feels he can reach his full potential at Abafana Bes’thende as there will be less pressure.

“Pirates’ technical team want a strong left winger, someone mobile and effective. Memela is good but he has not really fitted the system the coach is trying to instil which is why the likes of Thembinkosi Lorch and Thabo Rakhale are being tried in that position ahead of him,” said a source.

Meanwhile, as rported earlier, Bafana Bafana international midfielder Andile Jali will not be rejoining Pirates, at least not in the near future, that’s according to his agent Mike Makaab.

With Jali’s current deal set to come to an end soon, speculation has been rife that he could return to South Africa to join Pirates. Makaab, however, insists that Jali will remain in Europe.
