Orlando Pirates‘ Patrick Maswanganyi had the biggest pay day of his career on Sunday. He made R400 000 in one night at the 2024 Premier Soccer League Awards, thanks to his 10 goals and 12 assists in 40 matches.

As revealed by the PSL on Sunday night, the 25-year-old attacking midfielder walked away with three major awards:

  • Players’ Player of the Season – R200 000
  • Midfielder of the Season – R50 000.
  • Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament – R150 000.

Meanwhile, the Sea Robbers are preparing to fly to Spain for pre-season to take on the likes of Sevilla in July.

“Orlando Pirates Football Club is pleased to announce the club’s Preseason schedule for 2024. The Mighty Buccaneers will be returning to Europe for a three-match tour in Spain,” the club confirmed.

“Jose Riveiro’s men will begin their preseason campaign against English Championship side Plymouth Argyle on July 12, before heading to Seville on July 15 to take on La Liga outfit Sevilla.

“Then to round up the tour, the back-to-back MTN8 and Nedbank Cup champs will lock horns with Qatar Stars League outfit Al Sadd SC on July 19.”


Orlando Pirates have already made two more big decisions to replace senior players in midfield. Newer reports say the Sea Robbers have signed the replacements.

Jose Riveiro’s team confirmed parting ways with two senior midfielders Fortune Makaringe and Thabang Monare last week. Not too long after that, the Buccaneers reportedly signed Thalente Mbatha on a permanent deal.

According to SABC Sport, Mbatha’s former SuperSport United teammate, Selaelo Rasebotja has also put pen to papter to join Orlando Pirates.

Mbatha, who plays as a six, is Monare’s replacement, while Rasebotja, an eight, will take Makaringe’s place.
