“His contract will definitely not be renewed this time. There is already a search to bring on board a goalkeeper at the club,”

I mean, he is 38-years-old. He has been wanting to retire for some time now, it’s just that there were lots of things happening at the club with goalkeepers getting injured and not being able to find a suitable replacement,” said a source on Phakaaati.

Pirates have Richard Ofori who is making his return after being sidelined for several months.

Sandilands was ready to retire last season but extended his stay at the club. As a veteran and leader he provided experience to young up-and-coming players and a wise head as backup in goal.
