Issa Sarr touted as Jali's Pirates replacement

With Andile Jali moving to Belgium, Orlando Pirates are looking for a new enforcer in the middle of the park, and Sarr is reportedly the ideal man to take over the position
Platinum Stars midfielder Issa Sarr has been tipped as Andile Jali's successor at Bucs.

Jali signed for Belgian club KV Oostende over the weekend, which is a huge blow to the strength in Orlando Pirates midfield. Bucs will need to reinvest their resources and the Senegalese-born midfielder could be the man for the job.

27-year-old Sarr was at struggling Chippa United last season, and is currently at Platinum Stars on a two year contract. Bucs know all about him after losing to Stars in the MTN Final when Sarr helped Platinum contend with Pirates midfield. The game went into penalties, which Stars eventually won.
