MABENA’S AGENT EXPLAINS THE PLAN

Speaking to Metro FM’s Andlile Ncube on Tuesday, Mabena’s agent, Machini Motloung, said the player is indeed training with the Soweto giants with the view to keep fit, but not on trial with the hope of an offer.

“Upon receiving his clearance [from Royal AM], we needed to look for opportunities for Ndumiso Mabena and we are currently doing that,” Motloung said as quoted by the SABC.

“Orlando Pirates has been one of the clubs that we had approached to give Ndumiso a chance, and indeed yes…he is training there.

Asked if the player is trying to impress the technical team to get a deal, the agent said no.

“No, he is not on trial but maintaining his fitness and sharpness levels. As you would appreciate that he missed a lot of pre-season training. So, he is keeping in shape so that if an opportunity comes he is ready to play,” Motloung added.

“At the moment there’s no conversation regarding keeping him at Pirates, all that is happening at the moment is to make sure that Ndumiso gains his fitness levels and we are grateful he was given that opportunity by Orlando Pirates. These types of practices, in any event, do happen” he added.
