Orlando Pirates to retain Ndah?

25-year-old Nigerian defender Olisa Ndah is thought to be a key player, but has turned out just 17 times for the club this term for various reasons. Ndah joined the Buccaneers back in 2021 and has attracted interest from clubs abroad, notably in Italy and Sweden. He has reportedly tried to force his way out of the Soweto club as a result.

However, Ndah’s agent Mike Makaab has seemingly indicated that the player’s immediate future is at Orlando Pirates.

Background to Ndah’s situation

Not so long ago, Ndah seemed destined for the exit door at Mafair. A source close to Phakaaathi had this to say:

“Apparently, it was known that Ndah had set his sights on going to the top European leagues at some point. It was thought that he would spend at least three seasons with the club. But that hasn’t been the case because to be honest, he has not been playing much and making the starting line-up is hard for him. But he brought that to himself because he was no longer the player that we saw when he first came into the club. He was not doing his best at training, and fortunately, coach Jose Riveiro doesn’t have favourites. Only players that give their best at training play at Pirates.”
