“They decided to give everyone a fair chance before deciding. They have been keeping a close eye on all the players to ensure they retain players who are willing to work with them and who understand what they need from them,” said a source.

There has been speculation about who Pirates might release with the old guard, including Mpho Makola and Thabo Matlaba, among those said to be on their way out.
