Thabiso Sesane: A Loan Spell and Preseason Tour
Sesane had the opportunity to gain valuable experience during his loan spell at All Stars last season.
Having returned to Orlando Pirates, Sesane was included in the squad for the preseason tour in Spain.
While he traveled with the team, it’s worth noting that he didn’t appear on the official squad list for the 2023/24 season.
This absence hints at the possibility of him going out on loan again before the transfer window closes in September.
Stiff Competition in the Centre-Back Position At Orlando Pirates
He faces stiff competition in the centre-back position at Pirates.
With players like Nkosinathi Sibisi, Tapelo Xoki, Innocent Maela, Sandile Mthethwa, and Olisa Ndah vying for a place in the starting lineup, securing a regular spot in the team won’t be easy.
In the current campaign, Sibisi and Xoki have been the preferred centre-back pairing, starting all four matches in all competitions for the club.
This further intensifies the uncertainty surrounding Sesane’s future at Orlando Pirates.
The Decision on Sesane’s Future
As he awaits the club’s decision on his future, the outcome remains uncertain.
