The Bafana Bafana midfielder has been linked with several clubs in the PSL, but Tinkler has now confirmed that he is headed for the Buccaneers.
This was after Makaringe pulled off a good performance against Pirates in their 1-0 loss to Bucs midweek.
“No player wants to lose a game. He pushed the team against Pirates,” Tinkler was quoted as saying by Isolezwe. “He wanted to show them that he is coming over there next season. He didn’t have a bad game against Pirates but it could have been better. I know he will accept that he didn’t have the best games because of the type of person he is.”
