Thabo Nodada opens up on failed Pirates move

Cape Town City midfielder Thabo Nodada

Cape Town City midfielder Thabo Nodada has expressed his disappointment over his failed move to Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.

Nodada has been a vital cog in the heartbeat of City's midfield in the last two or three seasons - attracting a number of suitors including the mighty Buccanneers in the process.

The 26-year-old has now revealed that City chairman John Comitis told him that the clubs had communicated briefly over a possible transfer but that it came to nothing.

"I know there were discussions, but I know also there was no agreement, so it was always just discussions and nothing more," says the playmaker.

"As a result, nothing ever came to me as sort of communication from Pirates except a chat with the chairman John Comitis.

"I think there was an interest, but it didn't get to a point where it was intended to be, or it was put out to the public. I think there was a conversation, but that's where it ended.

"The chairman did inform me that he was trying to make a deal, but it didn't happen.

"I think I didn't have a problem with the move to Pirates at all. If all parties were happy with a deal, then I would be happy.

"So yes, I was willing to complete a move to Pirates."
