Zimbabwean international midfielder Marshall Munetsi bid farewell to Orlando Pirates as he joins French side Stade de Reims.

The versatile player was quoted on the Pirates website stating he came to the club as a young boy, and he now left as a man, but he would forever remain a Buccaneer.

“I came here as a young boy but now I leave as a man. I would also like to thank the coaches, my teammates and most importantly the fans of this wonderful club for all the love and support they’ve shown me,” Munetsi was quoted on Pirates’ official website.

“As I turn the page to a new chapter in my football career, I look forward to the new challenge this presents but as I move forward I can never forget my roots… Once a Pirate Always a Pirate!” he concluded.

Munetsi joined Pirates back in 2016, before being loaned to Baroka FC the very same season.
