Cape Town Spurs confirm Orlando Pirates midfielder loan signing
Orlando Pirates Fives star Miguel Dias has sealed a one-season transfer to Spurs from the Cape GladAfrica Championship.
Dias, 24, was part of the Pirates’ five-a-side squad after leaving the University of Pretoria in 2019.
Having spent time in the Netherlands with PEC Zwolle, the technically gifted midfielder brings a wealth of experience to the newly formed Urban Warriors despite his age.
Speaking to the official Spurs website, Dias explained how his career has gone unnoticed in recent months.
“When I got out of the operation, that’s actually when I was released from Tuks. So I had to do a lot of rehab and everything, so by the time I was cleared. to play, the season had already started… so I was in a bit difficult because the teams already had their players, ”he said.
“But I just needed to play soccer so I just thought about letting myself start somewhere. Then I was playing [for Pirates’ Fives team]. I thought I would let myself come back slowly, but because they didn’t know when we were going to start over, the coach decided that maybe a move would be better so that I didn’t waste more playing time. “
Dias will now aim to help Ian Taylor’s side achieve their promotion goals as they languish 14th in the 16-team Premier League, 10 points behind league leaders Sekhukhune United.
