Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Lebese could move to Orlando Pirates, Phakaaathi sources have revealed.

Lebese caused a social media storm last week when he tweeted that all he wants is to play and it doesn’t matter the colour of the shirt he wears. This was a clear indication that he wants out of Amakhosi.

“He has always been unhappy since Steve (Komphela) took over because he doesn’t seem to believe in him. He is a senior player in the team but was made to fight for his place like youngster.

That hurt him because the likes of (Siphiwe) Tshabalala never had that problem,” revealed a source. Phakaaathi has learned that Lebese might also be headed for Cape Town City, who have proved to be clinical in their business in the transfer market.
