Johannesburg - It has been revealed that SuperSport United striker Dino Ndlovu would have been an Orlando Pirates player if it were not for his salary demands.

According to Soccer Laduma, before penning a loan deal with Matsatsantsa in January from Israeli club Maccaibi Haifa, the Sea Robbers had the opportunity to sign the forward.

Football agent Lizwe Mthethwa, who was involved in negotiations, revealed that the Buccaneers were very interested in signing Ndlovu.

“He was at Maccabi Haifa, as he is still their player and on loan at SuperSport United. We spoke to the president of Maccabi Haifa, Ya’akov Shahar, about a move back to South Africa,” said Mthethwa.

Mthethwa makes known that there were several meetings with both parties but Pirates were not willing to bill Ndlovu’s salary.

"I sat in countless meetings with Orlando Pirates and I can tell you that they were going to sign him.

"The player had very high demands in terms of his salary and they (Pirates) said that he was out of their league,” added Mthethwa.
