Meanwhile, Pirates have confirmed a new appointment.

We’ve been asking who’s going to stop Mamelodi Sundowns. It might really be Pirates after securing the highly-rated conditioning coach Helmi Gueldich.

After leading the Tanzanian giants to a treble last season, Pirates announced Gueldich on Thursday morning.

“Orlando Pirates is pleased to announce the appointment of Helmi Gueldich as Conditioning Coach,” the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup champions said.

“Gueldich brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise having recently worked as the Strength and Conditioning (S&C) coach for Tanzanian League Champions, Yanga FC.

“Notably, Gueldich is not only a seasoned professional but also a former player, holding a Ph.D. in Exercise Science. His wealth of knowledge and background will be a valuable asset to the team.

With the Sea Robbers returning to the CAF Champions League next season, Gueldich’s vast experience on the continent will make him one of the top acquisitions of the transfer window.

“This appointment couldn’t come at a more crucial time, as the Buccaneers are gearing up to compete in five challenging competitions this season. The demanding schedule makes it imperative that the players remain consistently available for selection,” Pirates added.
