A Legend, a leader, and an inspiration. Happy Jele and Orlando Pirates have parted ways after spending 16 years together. Jele joined the Soweto giants in 2006 and eventually took over the captain’s armband from Lucky Lekgwathi. Jele has played over 400 times for the club and scored close to 18 goals. He is the most capped Pirates player to grace Soweto and his on-field aurora will be sorely missed. This news has come as a shock to many Buccaneers fans and they truly believe more could be done. On the Fan Reaction Show, one fan suggested that a leadership role for the youth could have been organised.
