A source has informed Goal that Mbulelo Mabizela is uncertain about a move to Mpumalanga Black Aces because Pirates are showing interestMabizela had once captained the Bucs, and after training at Black Aces to impress coach Clive Barker, whispers of interest from Pirates is stalling the move.
“He would have been signed by Mpumalanga Black Aces by now, but he is unsure as Orlando Pirates are showing interest in him,” said a source about the player who left relegated Chippa United recently.
It is believed that Barker is keen on rendering the services of the former Bafana defender because of his vast experience.
“Before he started his training with Aces, Pirates had already started negotiations with him, but the challenge is that they are now on silence mode,” concluded the source.
If Bucs interest isn't as firm as Mabizela hopes, it might be easier for him to gain match sharpness at Aces.
