Veteran Attacker Vincent Pule Departs Orlando Pirates

Orlando Pirates confirmed on Tuesday that attacker Vincent Pule has left the club after six seasons. The 32-year-old’s departure comes after falling out of favor under head coach Jose Riveiro.

“After six wonderful years, Vincent Pule is leaving Orlando Pirates Football Club,” the club said in a statement. “Pule arrived from Bidvest Wits in 2018 and immediately made a significant impact for the Mighty Buccaneers.”

Pule’s legacy at the Soweto Giants is undeniable. He amassed over 140 appearances and contributed to 35 goals (both goals scored and assists).

“On behalf of the entire Orlando Pirates family, we would like to thank Vincent for everything he has done for this club,” the statement continued. “He was a phenomenal player who delivered incredible moments on the field and embodied professionalism off it.”

“Thank you, Vincent! Once Always.”

Pule, who joined Pirates from Bidvest Wits in 2018, made a significant contribution, influencing over 35 goals during his tenure. However, he struggled for regular playing time in recent seasons.

Despite a contract extension, both Pule and the club reached a mutual agreement to part ways. This marks the end of Pule’s era at Orlando Pirates.
