Daine Klate has left Orlando Pirates and joined his former club, SuperSport United, Pirates said on their official website on Friday morning.

"Orlando Pirates Football Club can confirm the departure of Daine Klate to SuperSport United," a statement on the Buccaneers' website read.

"The 29-year-old returns to Matsatsantsa after five very successful years with the Mighty Buccaneers."

Klate joined Pirates from SuperSport in 2010 and quickly marked his place as a first team regular and one of the best wingers in the South African Premiership.

Pirates chairman, Irvin Khoza, thanked Klate for his contribution to the club.

“A winner of five league titles -- two of [them] while with us," Khoza said in the statement.

"Daine is an icon in his own right. He was a team player, a true ambassador of the game."

“He will forever be remembered at Pirates for his contribution. When we induct players in the future, he will be used as a reference point alongside other distinguished gentlemen such as Kaizer Motaung and Jomo Sono, players who represented this club with discipline and dedication."
