An Orlando Pirates fan has mocked Issa Sarr, saying if he had money he would buy the Senegalese international out of his contract and force him to an early retirement.

Writing to the National Lottery on their Twitter page, Trevor Mnini (@trevor_mnini) asked the lottery operators for “help” with the cash for his quest to buy out Sarr.

“If I had money, I’d buy (Orlando Pirates’) Issa Saar’ career and retire him. @sa_lottery please help,” wrote Mnini.

Sarr had a generally good first season with the Buccaneers as he commanded the midfield with resilience but it seems the fans are unimpressed.

A former Pirates player, Lennox Bacela cried foul on Wednesday night over what he called unfair treatment which was meted out to him by the Pirates fans at the end of the 2014/15 season. Bacela was called singled out as the failure by the fans despite having finished the season as the team’s top goal scorer.
