Sources told Daily Sun that the sangoma has been calling the soccer team’s offices in Parktown, Joburg trying to get hold of chairman Irvin Khoza.
The sangoma wants to warn him that even bigger problems are on the way and that intervention is needed. Over the past three months, three Bucs players have survived serious car accidents.
Just last week, new recruit Lehlohonolo Majoro’s VW Golf was written off outside Tshwane. A day earlier, former Pirates striker Thulasizwe Mbuyane was involved in a car crash in Ekurhuleni. And ex-midfielder Andile Jali last month crashed his Jeep into a bakkie in Kokstad, KZN. Defender Rooi Mahamutsa escaped with minor injuries after a pole smashed through his windscreen last month.
On the field, the team has had a difficult season since finishing second in the African Champions League.
They’re currently in the seventh position on the Absa Premier League’s table.
In January, coach Roger de Sa resigned and was replaced by Vladimir Vermezovic, who had an unpleasant start.
However, Pirates spokesman Mickey Modisane dismissed any talk of the team experiencing bad luck and said they were going through things also experienced by other teams.
Modisane added that players were still recovering from the gruelling champions league campaign and would soon start winning again.
