The 29-year-old returns to Matsatsantsa after five successful years with the Buccaneers.

Klate joined the club in 2010 and quickly marked his place as a first team regular and one of the best wingers in the league.

Dedicated to his craft and a role model for many, Dr Irvin Khoza said Klate is the embodiment of a model professional.

“A winner of five league titles - two of while with us; Daine is an icon in his own right,” said Dr Khoza on the clubs official website.

“He was a team player, a true ambassador of the game. With us he also became a double treble winner and a CAF Champions League runner-up.

“He will forever be remembered at Pirates for his contribution.

“When we induct players in the future, he will be used as a reference point alongside other distinguished gentlemen such as Kaizer Motaung and Jomo Sono – players who represented this club with discipline and dedication.

“We wish him well as he returns to SuperSport (United), a team where his illustrious career began.”
