According to Soccer Laduma, the midfielder returned from a loan spell with Polokwane City and quickly broke into the first team after starring in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge side.

“I’m happy with what I have achieved this season in terms of my Bucs career,” said Rakhale.

“Breaking into the Pirates team is not easy as there is a lot of quality here. Everyone works hard plus we have a coach who knows how to get the best out of us.”

Rakhale hopes to serve the Sea Robbers in the CAF Confederations Cup and is also grateful for the support he has been receiving along the way.

“This is a great opportunity for me personally to continue with my momentum.”

Pirates tackle AS Kaloum in their second leg at Bidvest Stadium on June 6 having won the first encounter 2-0 in Mali.
