Top Bucs job for Lekgwathi

2014-09-20 00:00

JOHANNESBURG — It has been reported that Orlando Pirates will hand the club’s captain, Lucky Lekgwathi, a managerial role at the Buccaneers.

It was reported the 38-year-old, who was given a one-year extension at the club during the off season, is being considered for a management role at the Sea Robbers.

Orlando Pirates chairperson Irvin Khoza reportedly wants to hold onto the veteran’s services after the player’s 12-years with the Soweto outfit.

It has now been revealed that Lekgwathi is in the running to take over William Okpara’s role as the team manager of the club.

After picking up a foot injury last season, Lekgwathi has already missed the first six Premiership games as well as the club’s MTN8 matches.

However, the defender has been declared fit and is reportedly ready to feature in Buccaneers colours this season.
