“Orlando Pirates can confirm that midfielder Linda Mntambo has moved to Sekhukhune United after agreeing terms with the club,” Bucs said on Thursday.
“Mntambo, who joined the club in 2018, registered 71 appearances, scoring eight times and recording six assists.
“The 33-year-old will be missed in the Bucs changeroom for the positive spirit he brought to the squad. Though he leaves us as a player today [Thursday] there is no doubt he will return to his boyhood club one day to serve in a different capacity.
“Pirates can confirm the amicable parting of ways with Ntsikelelo Nyauza after a meeting between the parties on Wednesday.
“The 32-year-old defender has been at the heart of Bucs' defence since joining in 2013. After captain Happy Jele, ‘Ntsiki’ was the second-most experienced player at the club with 192 appearances, including seven goals and four assists.”
Bucs’ signings in the 2023 preseason have included Miguel Timm, Evidence Makgopa, Bienvenu Eva Nga, Azola Matrose, Tapelo Xoki and Nkosinathi Sibisi.
Former Bafana Bafana captain Thulani Hlatshwayo, Kwanda Mngonyama, Abel Mabaso, Justice Chabalala, Elson Sithole, Wayne Sandilands and Thabang Monare are among their other players released so far.
