Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Siyabonga Mpontshane has been a regular feature for the Buccaneers under Kjell Jonevret. The 31-year-old shot-stopper has been chosen ahead of colleagues Brighton Mhlongo and Jackson Mabokgwane, and will be hoping to maintain his spot in the starting XI when the team faces off against Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.
Many Pirates supporters have shared their support for Mpontshane, and some believe he deserves the No. 1 jersey at Mayfair.
"To be honest, the dude got a chance and he didn't disappoint." – Hloni'mayeng2
"I think he is going in the right direction, let's support him, maBhakaniya." – Mandla Bazooka
"He deserves the No. 1 jersey. Eish, Mhlongo and Mabokgwane nearly took us to the NFD." – molaobert
"This guy is very good, if you can remember him at Platinum Stars." – Ngabady
"He is by far the better goalie, the problem at Bucs is that some of the players are always favoured." – jona_1@crossbones
"That's what I have been praying for, Siyabonga deserved that chance long ago." – MK khohomela
"He is good, honestly, but I think for now the problem is his confidence. But with game time it will grow and maybe we will see the Siya we used to see at Stars." – Madrista
