Could Happy Jele be on his way out at Orlando Pirates?

After substituting the Buccaneers defensive stalwart in the Carling Black Label Cup, new Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral then left him out entirely in Pirates’ friendly match against Sundowns in Windhoek on the weekend.

The early indications are that Ertugral prefers Ntsikelelo Nyauza at right back and that Edwin Gyimah and Ayanda Gcaba will retain their positions at centre back, leaving no real place for Jele.

It remains to be seen if Jele can win his place back, but for now his future at Pirates looks a little uncertain.
