Orlando Pirates have been a huge disappointment over the past few seasons, but it would be very dangerous to rule them out of the DStv Premiership title in 2022/2023 season.
In the past few seasons, Pirates have had probably one of the best squads in the Premier Soccer League (PSL), but they failed to challenge Mamelodi Sundowns for the Premiership title.
Pirates will head into the new season with a solid team after they were bolstered with good players such as Tapelo Xoki, Nkosinathi Sibisi Evidence Makgopa, Bienvenu Eva Nga and Miguel Timm.
They managed to hold on to their best players such as Thembinkosi Lorch, Vincent Pule, Richard Ofori, Deon Hotto, Olisa Ndah, Thabang Monare, Kwame Peprah and others to ensure they are not starting everything from scratch.
Lorch showed great form towards the end of the last season, and everyone knows if he is fit and raring to go Pirates is almost unstoppable.
