Johannesburg- Following the death of first-choice goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa, Orlando Pirates’ administration manager Floyd Mbele said the club are yet to decide on the way forward regarding their slain captain’s replacement as they are still in a period of mourning.The Buccaneers skipper was laid to rest at the Heroes Acre cemetery in KwaZulu Natal on Saturday.He was murdered at his girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo’s home in Vosloorus outside Johannesburg late last month. Mbele told Sport24 in an exclusive interview on Sunday that the club management must be given more time to grieve before being asked about Meyiwa’s successor.“We haven’t discussed this matter yet,” said Mbele.“We have just buried Senzo on Saturday. Maybe as time goes on we will have a meeting to discuss on the way forward regarding the matter. For now we are still in the mourning period.” Notably, the late Meyiwa played a crucial role in guiding the Soweto giants to the 2013 CAF Champions League final where they lost 3-1 on aggregate to Egyptian giants Al Ahly. Meanwhile, 23-year-old Brighton Mhlongo is expected to take over Meyiwa’s gloves as he has been playing second fiddle for some time since he joined the club from FC AK back in 2011. Pirates also have another young shot-stopper, Philani Zikalala, who joined the club from AmaZulu in the off-season. It remains to be seen who will succeed “Okpara Junior”.
