Orlando Pirates midfielder Thabang Monare is already on holiday in Mpumalanga, and in the past week, the baller had definitely upped the ante with his endorsement partner. Here's a look.

The story

With a whole host of stars on their roster, including Keegan Ritchie, Taariq Fielies, Thabo Mnyamane, and Darren Keet, Monare seems to be the one star who is considered the most fashionable by his outfitter Lotto Sport. 

The maestro has long made a name for himself as one of the best-dressed players in the league, even during his days at Bidvest Wits. In recent promotional work, Monare is seen the latest sports and streetwear drip by the brand, including tracksuits and sneakers.

"I come from a footballing area, so by the time I understood what life is I was already a footballer. There was a team just outside of my house," Monare explained in a Lotto commercial on Instagram.

"When I go around, please always ask me about the Lotto merch and that makes me feel like Lotto is my family, we are a family.

"I really appreciate what the brand has done for me and where it has taken me. That's why I am Lotto."

Recent success

Although the 33-year-old hasn't featured regularly this season, he has managed to get his hands on some silverware after the Bucs clinched the MTN8 title earlier this month. According to Transfermarkt, it was the playmaker's third career trophy in the South African topflight, having previously won the Telkom Knockout and league title with The Clever Boys. Unfortunately, the Embalenhle-born player has only played a measly 328 minutes of football across all competitions so far under new coach Jose Riveiro.
