Tebogo Tlolane has rejoined his former PSL Club. This move comes after the departure of Orlando Pirates loanee Bongani Sam, who has signed for rivals Swallows FC on a five-month loan deal.
“Messi”, as he is nicknamed, will return to Maritzburg United on a five-month loan from the Buccaneers, reuniting with former Bucs coach Fadlu Davids.
Tlolane had his first professional start in the PSL with Jomo Cosmos, but his best football was performed at the Harry Gwala stadium on a Friday night. With Maritzburg United.
However, life and opportunities at Mayfair have not been easy to come by. Making only two appearances in the black and white of Pirates, and starting less than 10 percent of those games shows how hard it was for the left back to fit in. The versatile left sided midfielder or fullbacks’ main aim is to regain the form that made Orlando Pirates sign him in 2019 from the Chilli Boys.
Hailing from the dusty streets of Katlehong, his next assignment will be to continue to get the Team of Choice away from the relegation zone. In their last game, they were beaten by Chippa United by a 1-0 score line, ending Maritzburg’s three-match winning run in the DStv Premiership under Coach Davids.
