thumbnail Hello,

After missing recent games, Goal has learned that Orlando Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi will make a return to the team

Following the injury of Siyabonga Sangweni, who left the pitch with stretchers in Orlando Pirates match against Mpumalanga Black Aces, the Bucs need to pull together as a team.

A source close to Lekgwathi told Goal that the senior player was recently suspended at the club and 'banned' from speaking to the media, following his allegations about some of the Pirates administrators.

“He was banned from speaking to the media but we are hoping that with Sangweni’s injury he might be making his way back,” said the source who's heard that the club is ready to forgive the player and give him a chance in the team.

Lekgwathi did not feature in the Caf Champions League match against Esperance, Pirates Telkom Knockout victory over Mpumalanga Black Aces and the MTN 8 final against Platinum Stars.
