Monare: 'It doesn't make any sense'


Midfielder Thabang Monare has reacted with shock to the news that he has been released by Orlando Pirates.

Pirates on Monday announced that it had released several players including Monare after failing to agree to a contract extension.

The 32-year-old made 24 appearances in all competitions for the Buccaneers last season, with two assists.

Kwanda Mngonyama, Justice Chabalala, Elson Sithole, Abel Mabaso, Thulani Hlatshwayo, and Wayne Sandilands were some of the other names also shown the exit door.

Meanwhile, the club has brought in the likes of Bienvenu Eva Nga, Evidence Makgopa, Miguel Timm and Azola Matrose.

"I was also surprised by the reports," Monare tells KickOff.

"No one at Pirates has told me anything about that, what I know is myself and Pirates will meet soon.

"What I know is we are still negotiating. It doesn't make any sense after having such a good season."

Contacted for his side of the story, Monare's Agent Mirko Agnelli refused to say much about the issue.

Monare will not be short of offers though as the likes of AmaZulu, Cape Town City, and SuperSport United continue to be on the lookout for new talent.
