Most Expensive Buccaneers Footballers 2023
The Most Expensive Buccaneers Footballers 2023. Orlando Pirates sport one of the best squads in South African football and here we look at the individuals with the highest valuation.
Josef Zinnbauer has set Orlando Pirates back on the path to the top but has done so with the same squad that Rhulani Mokwena directed.
It is quite clear that there are some extraordinary talents in the Buccaneers camp and here we look at the five most expensive players in their group as estimated by Transfermarkt.
Star striker and golden boot frontrunner Gabadinho Mhango just misses out on the top five despite a surge in the value of the Malawi international.
Top 5 Most Expensive Buccaneers Footballers 2023
5. SIPHESIHLE NDLOVU, MIDFIELDER: R13 MILLION
He has yet to entirely settle at the club but remains among the top five most expensive players based off his most recent valuation.
The diminutive playmaker from Pietermaritzburg has played just nine PSL matches this term but played 82 minutes against Black Leopards and could feature in Zinnbauers plans before the end of the season.
4. FORTUNE MAKARINGE, MIDFIELDER: R13.7 MILLION
The attacking midfielder joined Pirates as the Sea Robbers made a double raid of the Team of Choice in the off season. Pirates spent more than R25 million bring Fortune Makaringe and Ndlovu to Soweto.
Makaringe has settled far better than Ndlovu though and has made 18 league appearances establishing himself as a regular under Mokwena and then Zinnbauer.
His value, according to independent estimates, has only increased since joining Pirates and his career seems to be on the up.
3. VINCENT PULE, WINGER – R14.5 MILLION
He has played for Bafana Bafana just twice but is a creative force for Pirates, and it would take a fat packet to spring him from Orlando Stadium.
2. INNOCENT MAELA, FULLBACK – R16 MILLION
Maela should also be a big part of Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki’s plans to reach major tournaments in the next few years.
1.THEMBINKOSI LORCH, WINGER – R16 MILLION
Pirates were able to keep hold of him for another season, but it seems only a matter of time before the star man makes a big move.
