Chippa United Captain Chabalala Backs Nwabali’s Potential Orlando Pirates Move

Chippa United captain, Justice Chabalala says his teammate Stanley Nwabali would be good signing for Orlando Pirates.

Nwabali has recently been linked with a move to the Buccaneers.

The 28-year-old’s performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations has put him the spotlight.

Chabalala believes Nwabali would be a perfect fit for Orlando Pirates.

“We don’t want to lose any players, but for me, if you leave Chippa and you move to Pirates – I say Pirates because I love them, it’s a good thing,” Chabalala was quoted by SABC.

“It’s a good achievement in South Africa, if you move to a club like [Kaizer] Chiefs as well, the same goes for [Mamelodi] Sundowns, maybe even SuperSport [United].”

Pirates recently released two goalkeepers, Richard Ofori and Siyabonga Mpontshane, suggesting reinforcements in that department are imminent.

Chabalala says he’s been chatting with Nwabali and advising him about his potential big move.

“I’m not saying all the other teams are not good or anything, they are okay, they are very good teams, but when you move from Chippa to Pirates, everyone knows it’s a good move,” he added.

“Everyone wants to play for Pirates, and I’m happy for him [Nwabali] – he’s a good boy. He has achieved what he’s achieved and he deserves to play for a big team, maybe not even in South Africa, but to go outside and make money also.

“But we’ve been talking, ‘How was it there at Pirates? How is Chiefs?’ I said, ‘I don’t know about Chiefs, but when you’re at Pirates, it’s like you are overseas.”
