Orlando Pirates holding thumbs on work permit for new signing Jean-Marc Makusu


Soweto giants Orlando Pirates are hoping to have new signing Jean-Marc Makusu available for their next DStv Premiership clash.

The Buccaneers are due to face SuperSport United on Saturday and have their fingers crossed that the Congolese striker will be free for selection.

Makusa signed for Pirates last week on a season-long loan, but the 28-year-old is still awaiting his work permit before he can make his debut.

According to a club official, Makusa has submitted all the required documents to receive his permit.

“We submitted his papers a long time ago, we are just waiting for his work permit and hopefully he will get it soon,” the Pirates official told

Pirates take on Matsatsantsa at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday at 18:00.

Pirates are currently sixth in the DStv Premiership standings after three matches following one win and two draws.

SuperSport United, meanwhile, are in fourth spot after two victories and a defeat. Protection Status
