Goal already reported last month that South African club Orlando Pirates signed Theophilus ‘Ronaldo’ Tsowaseb from Namibia's Orlando Pirates. He signed a three-year deal after impressing during trials in Soweto.
The Namibian 'Ronaldo' has now returned to his home country, and will only come back to Pirates in the new season.
“We have signed him, but he will only rejoin the team in June,” Orlando Pirates administrator Floyd Mbele reportedly confirmed on Kickoff.
Meanwhile Igesund is under immense pressure for South Africa to impress against Brazil and Australia (on May 26), with his job on the line before the start of the Afcon qualifiers.
“Let me say this; after the Brazil game, we are playing Australia in Sydney and then another match before we start the 2015 Afcon qualifiers in Morocco. The preliminary round (Afcon qualifiers) is starting in April and then we will know who is in our group for the qualifiers,” Jordaan told the media.
“So those matches will be played back to back in September, October and November and so that means by November of this year, we will know whether we have qualified for the Afcon or not.
“So Gordon will coach this team against Brazil, Australia and there is another friendly. We will then make our evaluation and take a decision. Given the targets set and the achievements during his term, should the contract be renewed or not? That meeting has not happened,” Jordaan confirmed.
